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.
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
