Use Scotch 33 or Scotch 88 electrical tape.  Don't use 
any other.  You can also use Sotch Linerless Rubber 
Splicing tape to make the covering you're thinking of.  
Wrap first with a couple layers of Scotch tape, then the 
splicing tape, then top it off with more tape.  I've had 
good luck with just three layers of Scotch 33.  You can 
find that anywhere, Home Depot, Ace, Grainger, or any 
electrical supply house.  Phil  KB9CRY
