Yes, I think it's a cello-tape/scotch-tape = all cellophane tape, no
matter who made it, type situation.

We do have 2-part epoxies, but my use of them has been quite limited.
I've used a product called JB-Weld, that I assume is an epoxy. I waited
overnight for it to set. I've never used a 5-minute type, but that
doesn't mean they aren't commonly available. I just don't use adhesives
that often. Usually I'm trying to remove an adhesive :-)

I'm not sure if VOM is used much over here anymore. AVO really makes
more sense, since a lot of meters also measure current, besides voltage
and resistance. However, AVO stands for something like "Avoid Verbal
Orders", which is a piece of paper or possibly a form that is issued by
an member of management to an employee. I believe it had a wide range
of uses in a factory, but has fallen out of favor now.... so much so
that I don't really understand exactly what an AVO is.
