1. Are you certified?

2. Has your tape been calibrated?


How can the public trust you, if you do not take care of the small stuff?

They forgot, "Cat toy", cat's love chasing that retractable tape!

Then we have the fat max betting on how long the tape will go out before it bends!

I saw one tape that had a place to write your measurements on the side and one that had a level vial.

Did you know that Stanley makes a millimeter tape for those northern guys! (tmurray, got your ears on?)

We use a "bilingual" tape measure with imperial and metric.

I'm surprised that the author gets his tapes to last 10 years. I usually only get 2-3 years out of mine, but to be fair, they do see fairly heavy use.

tm, Is the bilingual tape the same as a talking tape measure? That makes my folding measuring stick a relic.
