Copper tape?

Need some thin copper tape (adhesive foil), about 1 or 1.5 inches wide, about

16 inches long.

I'd be willing to buy a roll for this one-time use, but all I see is the 3M stuff at $30-plus. Samples from vendors seem to be a thing of the past.

Is there any non-3M tapes available?

Thanks,

searched metacrawler for 'copper foil adhesive', seemed to come up with something.

metacrawler includes google searches, but doesn't suck on the(frequent) occasion that google will.

The stained-glass people use adhesive copper tape, but maybe not that wide.

wide, about

Does your application require copper? If it only requires a conductive tape, you might consider aluminum. Aluminum tape is usually available at hardware stores for use in duct-work.

Doh! I just never seem to think of e-Bay for components and supplies. Only for Digital Cams, Collector Dolls, and such. Dunno why... guess I'll get over that sometime.

Thanks!

If you need copper (maybe a need to solder on a lead), check your local craft store. They usually have thin sheet copper for crafts which you could attach with two sided tape.

This might sound strange, but check out garden supply shops. Copper tape is used to put around plant pots to stop slugs crawling up them - they don't like copper!

I picked up some self-adhesive copper in "letter" sized sheets at a stained-glass shop. You can just cut it to whatever shape you need.

And again your cross-posted question proves you aren't using google much. You'd be better to practice using it rather than doing your corss-posting (which as I said before is a sign of not using google to find the best place to ask).

A number of times, I just checked, I've mentioned that copper tape can be had where stained glass supplies are sold.

So the information is "google-able".

At least have the decency take out that silly signature, which is clearly not a statement of fact.

It is.

"Delete" or "kill file" are options.

Most garden supply centers sell copper snail tape.

I've seen it at homedepot and lowes.

Well, notwithstanding crossposting has nothing to do with whether or not a google search has been done, crossposting is preferable to multi-posting for a number of reasons:

Hey DaveC, are you sure you haven't Googled, you wouldn't be telling a little lie would you ;-)

I just did this -

"copper tape" supplies

- into Google and clicked on the first site and up came

there are plenty of others, 12,400 in fact, so I suggest you rid yourself of that pointless signature - and when you start using Google don't forget about the Groups section, where there are 78 hits for the same entry. Remember, whatever the problem you may have, you can bet your life that someone else has already had it and has already posted.

Simple is best. I was, apparently, Googling using too many terms, which limited my results.

Always happy to have someone point me to a resulting URL, as you have done.

Thanks!

Almost any garden shop sells this tape in 1 1/2 inch width for slug barrier.

done.

Anytime.

Try this Google exercise. Type anything into Google search and open up one of the many sites listed. Click on any link inside that site, and on the new page scroll down to some text and copy say about 6 words of text. Now go back to Google and paste it into the Google search bar inside " ". You should end up with only that site, or just a few. Repeat this exercise enough to convince you that Google has indexed possibly billions of pages. Once you understand that, it is possible to find just about anything with the right combination of text and text inside inverted commas put into search bar. And don't forget to use Images and News as well - the answer will be there - 99% of the time.

Cheers.
