I would like to buy a metric-only tape measure in the uk - where can i get
one? I've seen stanley ones in other countries in europe, but can only get
metric + imperial combined ones in the uk!!
Any help greatly appreciated!!
I'm afraid I got mine from France. I tend to pop in when on a beer run and
pick up tape measures and PVA (which for some reason is 1/3 of the price
here). I did find some metric ones when I was looking in the UK, but baulked
at the cost.
It is worth persisting though. Using a metric only tape is a dream compared
to those horrible imperial ones, where the cubits or whatever those Luddites
want to use always get in the way.

Its not the feet and inches that throw me, its the dual reading ones
with imperial and metric on the one tape that I hate. Metric only are
so clear in comparison, and they can be read from either side of the
