Tape Measures

section within our Hand Tools department

We are all familiar with the phrase "measure twice, cut once"...with many of us it would be "measure three times, cut once". So many tape measures, so many uses. The two standards of measurement in use today are: the English system of inches, fee and yards and the European metric system of millimeters, centimeters, and meters. As such, all of the various measurement tools for the projects we build such as rulers, tape measures, folding wooden rules, measuring calipers, are divisions based on one or both of these two systems. Accurate and sturdy tape measures are part of every tool box and part of any quality job, from building furniture to a construction site...make sure you are using a quality, sturdy tape measure from Stanley, Tajima, Starret that will last you a long, long time.

No matter how much technology or new products you throw at some people, they refuse to let go of their classic old school tools. Many craftsmen swear by their Folding Rules and would never consider trading them of any other kind of measuring tool. These folding rules are durable, lightweight and simple to use. Even if you consider them "old school", once you pick one up and try it out you'll be a believer. Tools-Plus carries folding rules in both plastic and wooden versions depending on your needs and preference.
