If you need a new stick-on steel tape for your fence (or whatever) you
might look at the Starrett tapes. We replaced a tape on a Biesemeyer
fence today with at Starrett and the product numbers on the Starrett
were the same numbers that were on the original tape from the Bies.
Depending on the version you need, the Home Depot site carries a
Starrett at about half the price and half the freight as the
Biesemeyer labeled tape from the Amazon site. Acehardware.com also
carries a Starrett tape and they will send it to your local Ace
hardware with no freight charge.
Since the Bies product is currently not in stock at Amazon, either of
these vendors will get it to you sooner too.
