        1. Wide heavy duty tape, like the tape in the photograph, is used all the time in real electrical work.
          If you connecting two real wires the size of your arm with a Kearney, caring 144,000 volts, you don’t use that thin multi colored stuff you buy at your local Harbor Fright.
          Half inch Harbor Fright tape is probably OK for connecting two blinking LEDs, connected to your door bell, down in the your moms basement.
