Carpentry Pieces and Parts

A Stagehand's Common Tools

- Remember that a stagehand's world is based on all things temporary: It should be as easy to take apart as it was to put together

- As stated before, a stagehand is expected to bring a crescent wrench and gloves. These items can be useful in a variety of situations

- Common types of tape found in our industry are electrical tape [useful for color coding and binding cables], masking or labeling tape [for making labels on surface or consoles], and most important, Gaffer's (Gaff) tape. Gaff tape can be in thin strips for making spike marks on the stage [spike tape], or thick strips used for securing cables or object to the stage or binding cables together.

     DUCT TAPE SHOULD NEVER BE USED IN A THEATER

        - it leaves behind a heavy, sticky residue and should never be used for temporary purposes.
