Leader tape foil

Hello, my 1st request for help! Can anyone help?
I am trying to find a source of silver foil for
Stop/reverse use on 1/4 inch tape.
I have plenty of coloured leaders, but have
not been able to find silver foil.
Preferably from within the EU due to the
rediculous import charges.
Many thanks
Alan

Use 1/4 copper foil found at Wal Mart.

Hi,

Not sure how Amazon works in the EU. But here is some available there.

Here is one available on ebay from Italy.

Hello Bob.
Thanks for info. The first one doesn’t ship to
the U.K. The ones in Italy, there are two, I have
ordered the dearer ‘new’ one.
Now need to get some splicing tape.

Alan.
