thanks guys for your input.
I bought the replacement tape today...
same model # but totally different...steel case instead of plastic, thinner case but still the 3/4 in blade I wanted. belt clip is so new and tight I've dropped it a few times already trying to clip it on.
In the meantime I'll just sit here between these 200W speakers, obey my 16' tape, start taking my meds again (thanks bill), and polish my new tape.
(if I could only find a tape without the MM writing on it)
MM's are the same as inches aren't they?
