Tape measures are one of those things, like safety glasses, that I like to have near every work station. There’s nothing worse than running around the shop looking for a darn tape measure! So I have about five of them floating around. Most of mine are the FatMax tape measures you see pictured left. Not because it’s the best tape measure out there but because that’s what Home Depot had when I needed a new one many years ago. Since then, I tried to buy the same exact brand and model in an attempt to have as much consistency as possible. Whether that truly makes a different or not, I’ll probably never know. So how many tape measures do you keep in your shop? And I’m also curious what your favorite tape measure is. Perhaps one of these days I’ll break away and get one of these new-fangled tapes with all the bells and whistles.
