Believe or not you can get the same tape as Steppir use from Home Depot, in
my local store the hide it in the gardening department.  It's about about 4
bucks a roll.

Keith -

Where did you get the fusion tape (like on the SteppIR).  When I put my 
SteppIR together I was really impressed with the fusion tape, but can't find

a good supplier that sells it in a reasonable length, i.e., longer than 6ft 
(Radio Shack) or less than huge amounts required as a minimum order by many 
other suppliers.
