Measuring Tapes

New measuring tapes have turned this shop necessity into a multi-functional tool. I ordered the FastCap tapes from McFeely's. They include the Lefty/Righty tape (FSC-4020), Story Pole tape (FSC-4022), and FlatBack tape (FSC-4024). The center-finding tape (25N10.16) and large print "Blindman's" tape (50K16.01) came from Lee Valley. You'll also find most of these tapes at the Woodsmith Store.

If you want to eliminate reading error, you'll want to give the new digital measuring tape made by Starrett a try. The information below will help you locate a distributor or retail store in your area.
