Hi,

Does anyone know the cheapest place to get electrical / insulation tape from. (Multi pack, or singles.) I have found it to be 56p a role from gaffatape.com but then they sting you with delivery. Any Ideas?

Thanks In Advance

Owen

Owen. Ask an electrician in your local or go to the 99p shop and get a pack of six.

I bought some from the £ shop, useless.
This stuff is great though; http://www.amazon.co.uk/UniBon.....#38;sr=8-1

Posted FYI:

I got 2 packs (£1 each), which came with:

> 1x Black Leccy
> 1x Grey Leccy
> 1x Double Sided Tape
> 1x PTFE.

I also got a 15m roll of Gaffer for £1.

All of this came from Tesco.

So now it's get out the soldering iron, and the heat shrink tubing. Lecky tape is good for big finger cuts tho (as is superglue in some cases)

Owen; Moved to OT.

Tesco would not be my best source / port of call for electrical tape. It fails in cohesion and stickiness.
It is useless as a material concept, professionally

What Mike said. Also, have to pass the booze aisle to get to it. Just not cricket.

By Jiminy, is that correct ? Booze aisle is my last port of call.

Really? It's my first. Heaviest items go at the bottom of the trolley.

Nah. Best deals at the end of the day, when they just want it gone.
