This was as close as I could find, this morning…$26.89 with free shipping

The downside, it’s in Singapore, so shipping may take a while. Good luck.

Well, if Stanley owns the rights there should be something here. I want a couple of new ones but, Man! I didn’t want to buy the factory. lol They are proud of that sucker.
Thanks A10GAC.

No problem, the auction lists the build date as 1980…I wonder if they’re still in production? Good luck with your search.

I don’t think I have seen one of those… Does it show you the measurement in a little window or something?
What makes it So Good?

Hope you find’em…

Joe, It has many features that other tape measures do not have. ie: Laying out circles and arcs, double read tape. reads like any regular tape, but when you measure to a corner it has a read out on top (which my picture does not show.) and though I don’t use the level all that much, the squared sides are great for setting up a jointer fence, or double checking a saw fence for squareness to the blade and also the same for the router table.
I’ve used this one for twenty plus years and really wanted a back up or two in case this one is lost or broken.
In short it is a comfortable old friend. Rand

For $25 you can get a nifty Festool tape (metric and Imperial). Glue a $2 bubble level on the side, and you’ve saved shipping costs. ;-)

Ralph, for woodworking these are the two favorite features I use the most:

As you can see, it is getting hard to see thru the lens.

This doesn’t show the hardened metal sides very well, but this is one square that does not move.

Don’t know how much shiping would be though.

David! Don’t waste the postage. Keep the tape and think of us every time you use it for as long as it lasts. Home Depot has thousands of ‘em.

As for the French tape, Stanley stopped making it 15 years ago, so I just gotta take good care of this one.

We’re glad you beat the storm home. But we sure do miss you already. And Rhodie has no one to nip at their heels. lol When Rhodie and Dex sit for their cookies, there is a BBBIIIGGG space where the lap puppy sat. lol
Buddy sure loves his cookies. Slip him a couple for us. Rand
