Any ideas about where you can get the GN Aus tape binding?

It is just zinc oxide tape. Nothing special

on GN Australia made bats.

As i said in the non flexible video zinc oxide tape is fine. their tape is even thinner.

I know that this thread has gone off on a bit of a tangent, but heres photos of the binding over the top of the built-up handle. Its held in place well, no slipping or anything like that.

This is a 40 year old size five.
I believe it is a gn.

Interesting twine string tape used (obviously not the parcel tape) the shape of the shoulders look familiar too...

@LukeFramBurton and @Buzz , very cool pics!

I have an old, broken bat with an intact handle. I will use combination of tape and cut-outs of grips on top of twine to create bumps.

Suspect TK wasn't making bats 40 years ago! The men who he learnt the trade from were though.

Sure. The neat indentations in the shoulder do look familiar. There is a similar vintage GN on Ebay at the moment and this has similar indentations on both front and back of shoulder. Ultra lightweight too. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/223914768175
