    I got about 15 tapes ranging from 3m up to 50m. most are 5m or 10m tapes which I misplace - buy a new one and then find the one that was lost. Usually in pocket of work fleece. Found two today 1 in my winter Hi -Vis - 5m rehau tape (freebee from UFH installer course) and the other a 3m one from wickes in my winter fleece whilst tidying my office.

    I've got a a couple of tapes from tradetiler (5m & 8m). I have a 5m from Travis Perkins, a 5m from Montolit (metric both sides - really handy) and 8m from Buildbase.

    Like Dave, I just seem to acquire them .
