KOMELON Tape for the WorkShop KOMELON Tape for the WorkShop No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

On my usual Thursday night grocery shopping at WalMart, I was looking through the tool aisle (never know what I may find) I (Ok my girlfriend did( saw this hanging by the tape measures> Hmmm for around $4 bucks I thought I would give it a try because my workbench needed a built in measuring tape. It took me 2 tries to get it on correctly. I was certain it would not stick after re taping 2x but it did. I had to cut it with a dremel since it is a metal backed tape. Definitely, worth it, just not sure what to do with the remaining piece.

Good find! I had to wait 2 months for mine [ordered from Grizzly]. Never thought to look at Wally World.

Looking at the photo I see it is read left to right. Do they make one that is read right to left? I’d like one of each for both sides of the blade.

I had one of these on my work bench and liked the principle of it. I found out that if you use your bench as much as I do, the numbers wear off fairly fast on the tape and it becomes unusable. I put a 45 degree chamfer on the front edge of the workbench so the tape is now not exposed to the wear and tear the bench gets. Good review….....

Pie, thanks for the review. I just order a couple of tapes from Woodcraft. I am sure that the one you bought was much cheaper and will work just as well. Like Andy commented, Wal-Mart does not normally come to mind when I think about buying things for the shop.
