I found a bunch of them in Australia about a year ago and bought 15 or so.
The place may still have them. I'll try to find their URL. They are labeled
BASF and are in a small grey plastic dispenser. The other manufacturer was
Editall. The tabs were branded XEDIT. Last ones I found were at Tape
Warehouse in Atlanta but I think I bought all they had. They still have the
1/2", 3/4" and 1" tabs in stock if you don't mind cutting them down to size.
The URL is HTTP://www.tapewarehouse.com. I think they're superior to the
BASF tabs.

I used to be able to get those BASF dispensers from an AV distributor in
Edmonton, but that was a LONG
time ago (at least 20 years). Now it's whatever I can get from Tele-Tech,
just north of Toronto, and the
usual half-inch dispenser and a razor blade.
