Tug-o-War Fabric Cement

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

If any of you wear out jeans half as fast as we do, you should check out this product. It is distributed by E.P.S., Inc. (Blaine, MN). And no, neither I, family members or friends have any connection to this company. This stuff will bond fabric, canvas, leather, rubber etc. in minutes and is waterproof. My stepson who is a steel worker brought me a bottle of it a couple years ago, he uses it to patch his jeans and coveralls. Dh went crazy patching up all his torn and worn out jeans. You just cut a piece of scrap jean material and glue it to the jeans to repair them. My stepson also takes new jeans and applies huge patches to the knee and thigh area before he ever wears them. In our experience, this stuff can't be pulled off, worn out or washed out. I use it constantly for all kinds of repair. If anyone's interested, e-mail me I'll send their snail mail addy, haven't checked yet for a website.

Hi there, I would like to have that address anytime you have the time to send it to me. I couldn't get this sent to you by clicking on your e-mail address...I don't know why. I am using time at an internet cafe right now. Maybe that's why.

Will it bond tennis shoe soles? I've tried several products with poor results. I checked Minneapolis phone directory (includes Blaine), but this company is not listed. Please post address/phone. Thanks!

Here's a URL for a company that resells it. It used to only go under the single brand name of "tehr grease" but is now being marketed under several different names. Search for "tehr val-a" and you'll find several links to people that sell it. This one is in minneapolis MN. http://www.usahardware.com/inet/webSession/store/dept- 1/department/dept-1/item/12250/icn/20-057489/shopper/US996710939- 57491/lookin/12250/val_a/tg_16.htm
