Just for anyone looking for authentic 3M tape on Ebay just be aware that some sellers post what looks like 3M and have 3M in their product listing but for them 3M stands for 3 Meters in length so verify it has the trademark actually on the tape and inside the roll and you can also look at who they list for manufacturer.
I am not willing to risk trying an off brand tape and here is an example of a non 3M product.

That looks like a China based seller shipping from the US. I'd rather buy local for that than risk getting the fake stuff.

Kent tape is good as well, although contractually, we're bound to 3M at work

I have bought it a few times off Ebay with no issues but locally only 5/8 and 3/4" wide is stocked and sometimes I need about 10 mm wide to do the job and I get it at a good price.

They always have to find a way to f*** you. And they wonder why we don't like them
