    It's a pitty that it's 1/2" tape instead of 1/4"

    Ah, well if you want 1/4", I think you'll find this stuff is 406-equivalent, and it's about the same price:

    Thanks for the link, but at 17.51 euros each tape isn't as good deal as the one posted for 1/2 tape... or maybe I'm worng, but I understood 14.99 for SEVEN tapes, not one. If it's just one, then it's not a bargain

    I assumed he was selling the contents of the box off, one at a time, though I'm happy to be surprised. 27 (15+delivery) is pretty good for a single hub of 1/2" tape. For seven tapes, you're getting into too-good-to-be-true territory.

    He's charging well over 12.00 for Ist Class Delivery which is the price that RM charges for 8 Kilos according to their website which I checked earlier, that's why I assumed the auction was for the box?

    And that is virtually the same weight as a box of 7 406 1/2" tapes........?

    If I get one tape I want my 7.00 postal refund!!!!!! LOL!!!!

    Heh. Well, I reasoned it was still a pretty good price even if he was gouging for delivery - which some people do.

    (Runs back and snags another box)

    The only problem is that I don't have that many spare spools. I'm sure I can fix that, though...
