I need a 79-068 Biesemeyer RS tape and cannot find a supplier that has one in stock until after the first of the year. Anyone got one hanging in your shop you want to sale?

That’s a 1/2 inch wide tape. We’ve tried one of those and everyone complained they couldn’t see the 1/16’s on the tape as well as they could on the 3/4” wide tape. I probably need to replace the tapes on all the saws.

1 left in stock. I was on the phone with them, while I was on hold I saw your post, thought I’d ask.

Thanks Nicky…I called and the person went to check and said none in stock so I must have been to late.

Tried Mike’s tools? Best to give them a call prior to ordering just to make sure.

Thanks guys for your replies and efforts. I ordered one of Eagle American’s tapes last night. Thanks Vrtigo1.
rebelson, I’ve gotten them from Mike before and was the first place I called.

I called Stone Mt. Power Tools this morning and they had a yellow one. One of my daughters has a meeting with an architect near there today so she’s going to get one of those also.

I went ahead and put in an order for 6 of them with one supplier so maybe they’ll be here before this time next year. . We’re working 6 days 12 hours right now this week so I’m stretched.

One again, thanks guys for your help.

Glad I could help, it took about 10 minutes to find a place that had something in stock!

Have your say...
