Tape measures:
Yesterday I rounded up all the tape measures. I have a rack that holds 6. Before rounding them up I had one left on the rack. As I read this thread in the shop I had 5 on the rack and I have no clue where my favorite one is. They have legs, you know…

I believe I have this one under control. I have a 2×4 screwed to my sliding miter saw as a sacrificial fence. On the back side down the entire length I drilled pocket holes 1/2” apart. Put a red line on the top of the 2×4 to indicate where the holes are for easy loading. I keep around 10 pencils randomly located in these holes at all times. I hate not having a sharp pencil.
