    And in the demo picture, the application of the tape is not best performed in that way either.

    Obviously not, because I have never suggested putting PTFE on compression threads.

    Perhaps you have been misled by my stalker.

    For this, and various other reasons, I have come to the conclusion that JD is losing his reason - if he ever had any.
