AKA: LX tape, Leccy
Electrical Insulation Tape can usually be found in the pockets of most techies. Uses include taping cables to the rig, wrapping cables up, hiding bare bits of wire (No! Just No.), strapping gel frames together and attaching unsuspecting victims to unmovable objects.
LX is used on the cables to mark their length, we use a similar system to Blacklight except we don't include red or yellow, which are on all cables to indicate that they belong to Bedlam. Lengths are always rounded down and if there are two bands, then the lengths are added.
LX tape is also used to identify the owner of tools; the table below shows some of the combinations
|Yellow/Green||F.O.B.||Friends of Bedlam Toolkit (Striped/Earth Tape)|
|Yellow/Black||Dave Larking||ex-Theatre Manager|
|Red-Black-Red||Duncan Grieve||Moved On to better things.|
|Purple/Black||Alistair Marshall||Please Sir can I have my <insert tool> back?|
|Blue||Colleen Patterson||Will possibly add black if such a simple colour becomes an issue|
|Green/Black||Richard Bell||I hereby claim the fore-mentioned colours for my stuff!|
|Black/Red/Black||Mark Gerrard||...see it, find it? Give it back...|
|Green/Black||Heather Hanshaw||I hereby re-claim the fore-mentioned colours from Richard cos i was here first! xx|
|Green/Black/Green||Claire Freake||My AJ had a band of bright green lx. Then it went missing at NSDF. Damn.|
|Blue/White||Alex Engel||These colours were hijacked with consent from David Illsley.|
|Blue/Red/White||Dave Moffat||It's mine, right!|
|Blue/Silver||Xander (like "Cher")||Maybe I should put my colours on my LX tape...|
|Blue/Green||Denise Wood||I'm reserving this in advance for the tools I will someday have!|
|Blue/Black/Red||Alex 'Mal' Mead||I know have lots of stuff but none of it is tagged|
|Yellow/Brown||Neale Dutton||They're not Terry's they are mine.|
|White/Black/White||Jamie McQuilkin||Because one day I might actually have stuff worth stealing...|
LX tape can be used to write on. If a lantern breaks please put some tape on it, write what is wrong with it and leave it on the back desk of the tech box. If the mode of failure is not known mark the item FUCT - Failed Under Constant Testing!!
