Thank you igloolad. Deal still £12 for prime members, despite being marked as expired. I have the Stanley 8m and my work mate has the FatMax 8m. The FatMax is a much better tape for a ‘pro’worker: just ordered one.
It looks like pondland has frozen to iceland. Man, I'm good at this.
I bought these a year or so ago, get used fairly regular,dropped, bounced, kicked and still working well!
screwfix.com/p/stanley-stht0-74816-tape-measures-2-pack/2086H 2 for 9.99 here, though to be fair not ‘fat max’ brand (looks very similar tho).
Good tape but most people don't use this everyday, maybe twice a year for some so poundland tape would most likely be sufficient anyway hence the cold votes.
