Where to buy Kapton tape in Sydney?

Time to re-motor and experiment with DCC, so I need Kapton tape Smile

A quick Google shows either 30m rolls (!!) or ebay sellers...looking for somewhere to buy 1/2/3 cm wide rolls of 5/10m in the next day or so....

Any suggestions where to try?

I have never seen Kapton tape in non commercial quantity rolls. Every roll I've ever purchased has come from 3M and has been the standard 36 yards. Perhaps you could try searching the more generic term of 'polyimide tape' which might get you a generic label product in a small quantity.

I would try MRRC at Blacktown. That's the sort of stuff they'd be likely to have I would imagine.

I bought two rolls yesterday from a supplier on eBay in Taiwan for about 6 bucks each with free shipping to Australia.

Last I heard, this was from RS Components Confused, is that Element 14 doesn't do counter sales any more. I maybe wrong, but it might pay to check. In saying that they are quite good with deliveries.

Element14 at Chester Hill definitely do counter sales. I went down there 2 weeks ago and purchased some goodies.
