What can you do with old broken measuring tapes?

Chuck it and buy another one

If it’s a craftsman turn it into sears and get a new one.

attach it to a wall for measuring kids through the years.

I think kids today are not taught to measure. Common core teachings require a bunch of algebra equations that don’t really give good answers. Measuring might be a thing of the past. (Another good reason to hang unto old tape measures.)

put them in a drawer, when you need to mke a jig to measure blade height cut a bit off and glue it on. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
