Hi, just a bit of useless information.
I always find that when I have to measure something the rule or tape is always on another bench, machine, or in another room. I have pencils scattered in different areas of my workshops for the same reason.
I have plenty of steel rulers of different lengths, but I hate to see things go to waste.
Nice. I recently invested in two high quality tape measures on sale at good prices. I did not realize how much better they can be than the cheap ones I used for years.
