I'd say that was borrowed from RED GREEN, but I don't think he uses WD-40!!!!

Add electrical tape and metal wrapping wire to that.  Good Luck, TomC

I remember the same theory from my Navy days, except it was "if it moves, grease it, if it doesn't move, paint it.

Metal wrapping wire? That must be one of them thar California things. Us redneck flatlanders call it baling wire. Guess it serves the same purpose. ;D

Have a nice weekend Wayne

Baling wire-commonly called bailing wire.  Many big city people don't know what bailing wire is.

Thank You for correcting me,all on this board knows I am the worst speller here. This old farm kid used a tractor and a baler to make bales of hay and used wire to wrap them. I would think it would be baling wire, but I am the last to argue spelling.

Thank You Wayne

Thank You Wayne

Wikipedia agrees with you:

PS. Nice to note that the term 'going haywire' comes from when your baling wire gets all messed up...

Wayne, the spelling was correct.  My guess is that Tom C was referring to wiring bail money to the jail.

I stand corrected-Baling wire is correct. Bailing is either bailing out of an airplane or using a bailing pail to bail out the boat.  Baling wire is also called mechanics wire.  Anyway you look at it-always good to have.  Good Luck, TomC

The difference between baling wire and mechanics wire is about $100.00 per roll.

In the aircraft industry we refer to it as "Safety Wire" used to safety nuts and bolts so they can't loosen. Baling wire is also not stainless or inconel safety wire is.
