    Precise durable thin stick on metric ruler/measure/tape? Where to buy?

    I am looking for a precise, preferably metal or tough plastic narrow width adhesive ruler/tape/measure indicator that I can stick on my front extension and base of wooden camera. Anyone have a source for where they can be bought? A link or point to a reference would be great!

    Forensic supply dealers. Possibly also medical supply dealers.

    Google is your friend. I bet they even have Google in Australia! I found about a billion choices on US Google.

    Consider printing one on a computer.

    I printed one that I found online. I put double stick tape on the back and then taped it to my camera.

    I'm thinking sewing style measuring tapes. They roll up, don't scratch anything and last a while.

    I already keep 5 or 7 steel tapes all over my loft and seldom can find one.

    I measure a lot of things...
