    If I had to pick one thing I could not live without on a day to day basis it would be my Gerber.

    Please fill me in on what RTV is. I should know, but nothing pops into my head. Radio? Television? combination? Repair tape? Hmmmm? The other listed materials are well known and on my list too.

    As far as having a hard time resisting when I see them - old or new - are logging chains. I buy them, make them up, repair them, and have them hanging everywhere. Also, anything JD green. Love that color I guess.

    First, what is RTV?

    Here's my list;
    Tri-Flow - a petroleum based version of WD-40 that's way better
    Lock De-Icer
    Gaviscon
    Armor-All
    Duct tape - 'Quando Omni Flunkus Moratati'
    Electric winches (yes, I have more than one)
    Makita cordless drill
    Trailers (for hauling/towing, not for living/camping)
    Chains &amp; hooks - I have some grade 70's only 1' long I use all the time and others up to 30' long
    Tie down straps with extra long, wide handles
    My ugly, old, orange F-450 dump truck
    Quicken Home &amp; Business 99
    Palm Pilot Vx
    Dell notebook
    HP printer/fax/copier/scanner
    Convert-a-ball trailer hitch (and I used to laugh at them)
    Leather gloves with extra long cuffs to keep my shirt/coat sleeves clean
    Too many electrical outlets - in my truck, on my trailers, in my house, in my barn, anywhere
    Power strips - those 6 outlet strips with the short cord

    RTV is silicone gasket maker. comes in either toothpaste tube or a caulking tube if you need a lot. Put it a bead on in place of a gasket, let it set for about 15minutes or so, and bolt on whatever. instant gasket.
    PB blaster is penetrating oil, a very good one. beats liquid wrench by a mile.

    favorite stuff in no particular order:
    Duct tape
    3M electrical tape (more stretchy than the cheap stuff)
    Body shop masking tape (3M green)
    3M adhesive remover (stuff is amazing)
    Laquer thinner
    Zerorust
    PB blaster
    berryman's chem dip
    carb cleaner
    Castrol super clean
    simple green
    whitewall cleaner
    zip ties (especially the giant HVAC ones)
    anything cordless (including nail guns)
    anything air powered
    probably some stuff I forgot

    Thanks for what turns out to have been just refreshing my memory, Scott. I've used RTV but never thought of the name of it. It's always been 'the blue gasket goo' to me. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/blush.gif[/img]

    Also, while it's no 3M adhesive remover, believe it or not I've had amazing results de-lettering trucks (taking old company logos off) with starting fluid. I wouldn't necessarily recommend this if you're a smoker, though. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

    RTV stands for "room tempature vulcanizing". Vulcanizing is the process used on natural rubber to harden it and make it more durable. It required heating the rubber and adding certain chemicals. When discovered, the different RTV mixtures didn't need heating for them to set up, hence the name "room tempature vulcanizing".
