  • Where to buy Tajima measuring tapes in Canada?

    Is there a hardware store that I can go and buy Tajima measuring tapes in Ottawa? I don't like the idea of online shopping for tools and I am specifically looking for this brand.

    really appreciate your answers.

    Cheers.

    What's so special about those tapes?

          They make a quality tool. I have had a couple of their caulking guns. The sleeve that you drop the caulk into is longer than any of the others. The handle is more refined. They also make chalk lines and probably a lot more tools. Some people appreciate quality tools and are prepared to pay extra. They are available at most stores that cater to construction industry. If IIRC their caulking guns are about $30

              I understand wanting to buy a "particular" tool, but just in case you are open to suggestions, I have found the FastCap tapes to be pretty decent. I have been using this style for many years :

                I have several of the fast cap tapes and a couple have got to be 5 years old and used and abused. My only wish is that they made a 12 ft that was small enough to carry in your pocket.

                  Just type Tajima in the search bar there. They have 117 choices of Tajima stuff.

                  There's somewhere else I've shopped that carries a host of Tajima stuff, I just can't recall where right now.

                    The shipping fee to my place is as much as the measuring tape itself :(


                    I'm open to quality Canadian-made alternatives but the other side of the border... not so much.

                    A measuring tape is not a big deal as it is 10-20 bucks but I have never seen quality Japanese manufacturers cheating on their costumers or European-made tools are usually as advertised but have seen USA-made products (which I have paid the premium for them) usually do not deliver what they are advertised.

                      I just add it to an order I'd be ordering for something like that to get past the free shipping threshold. That's just me typically dealing with items like that. Atlas always seems to have something I would need that adds up to such being a tool/gadget junkie.

                        Both Takima and FastCap are available thru' Amazon Canada. When I look up your G-5.5M tape it shows me as being shipped free ....

                        cheers

                          I guess I have been doing things all wrong using my Stanley tapes...

                          Here I thought that Stanley is still doing Quality tools especially for woodworking. I guess I was wrong.
