I like a small tape ruler, because I do small projects, but occasionally like to measure up to 8 feet or so. I like this Johnson one – it has a lot of great features, especially the clear hook piece. I just wish it wasn’t so huge; I like to keep my tape in my little apron pocket, and this wouldn’t be a good fit. Nice tape though, otherwise.

Steel rulers are nice, yes, but I don’t think they come with an edge hook for easy measurement?

Maybe I ought to invent the ultimate woodworker (as opposed to carpenter) tape ruler, make a million bucks, and retire in Tahiti?

-- Have a blessed day!
