Stepped on Tape Measure, Tape Broken in Two - How can I Repair?

Postby john9159 » Tue Jul 15, 2014 9:58 pm

I stepped on my tape measure (Stanley 3m/10ft) today and broke the tape in two.
Any suggestions how to repair this? Maybe with an extra strong adhesive tape?
I might just try some epoxy resin when I get the time and hope it does the trick.
