I have a lot of places I’d like to use stick on measuring tape, and I bought some, but it’s only one piece and the markings are incremental from end to end.
What I would like is a pack of pieces that are each 12” long to use in various places.
Anyone ever see anything like that?

I see only 10’ long tapes.
Did I miss something?

Rockler sell six foot ones, but still not what you want.

What about making your own (print and laminate) and attaching with double sided tape?

Dunno what tolerances you are working to. Starrett “Measure
Stix” tapes are pretty good, or at least very close to the
scales on my Austrian-made table saw. The important
thing is you don’t develop unacceptable levels of compound
errors due to tapes not matching up, especially on
longer cuts.

... so I’d stick with one brand.

I once bought something like this:

I only used it a couple of times and after a year or two
the rest of the roll had stuck to itself and I threw it out.

Have your say...
