Rick was just telling our 5-year-old grandson about adding the length of the tape measure body when he is measuring something. Our grandson was standing the tape on its end as the “0”. I think you get it .. but definitely something everyone should know and remember!
(oh, and did you know that the body measurement is printed on the side?)
Once in a job, the apartment owner had a feng shui guru come to bless the place. He pulled out a tape measure with no lines or markings on it. I didn’t get what was going on there. My tip is make sure your tape measure has lines to measure. It helps me, anyway.
Yeah, I’ve gone through a few Stanley Tapes, HOWEVER I still have my trusty 50-footer made by Lufkin Rule Co. My father bought it in the late ’50s or early 60s. And yes, I still use it anytime I need a long tape. Getting close to 60yr, I have to say this tape measure lasts!
