2 Pack measuring tapes. When you can get 2 for the price of one, why not? One is retractable and one is cloth. Each have their own applications. Cloth works well for measuring body and retractable easy to use for flat surfaces. Both are marked in inches on one side and in centimeters on the other

The regular non-retractable is 1/10 to 1/8" off depending on how far you go down. The retractable one appears to be accurate. I always measure my tapes against a cutting mat or straight ruler, because it is very important to be accurate when measuring. Save yourself some time, and order

I buy my husband an expensive set of tools or organize his car, and he barely notices. I buy him a $9 speed square, and he can barely contain his happiness as he flips through the blue book.I don't know. I just don't know. But he loves it. Says it feels so sturdy and that blue book alone would have been worth

Everything you could want in a speed square. I’m not giving it a 5/5 only because the measurement ticket are large. This works great for scribing a line on the inside of the tool, I’m not sure why they are made so large/ aggressive on the outside. A must for any tool beltIf this review was helpful please let me know by clicking the

I'm writing this purely on the speed square, as the combination square worked perfectly as designed. This speed square is perfect and true... as long as you're only using it on radius edge lumber. In my furniture shop it's fairly worthless as where the lip meets the plate there's a slight radius which will not allow it to seat square

Standard for all my reviews: When reviewing products, I always remain objective and honest about the product or service. I always review with information that I feel others would like to know about the product as I always assume what I'm writing will influence for or against the purchase.

I purchased this tape measure earlier this year before I started a few home improvement projects. Recently I was on my step ladder in the garage, hanging up a pegboard backer for my garden tools, when the tape slipped off my pocket clip & fell to the ground from about 3-4 ft. When I went to use it again the end hook was bent

This angle gauge works well.Works well to set up the blade angle on your table saw and table angle on drill presses, band saws, scroll saws, etc.I also do a lot of steel plate welding at compound angles.I also use it to determine the angle of my rifle barrel when shooting uphill or downhill.Range finders do not calculate the x axis

It feels very sturdy and accurate. Magnet is very strong. Easy to use and read. My only complaint is the divot in the center of each face. This makes it hard to measure thin objects. The magnet side should have been designed to be flat or the divot not as pronounced. Its a solid unit otherwise and I recommend it over other cheaper

This tape has quickly became my shop favorite, and I’ve got a lot of tapes. As a lefty it’s great to finally be able to read a tape right-side-up for the first time in my life. I also like that the measurements are clearly numbered down to a 1/16th of an inch (see photo). The recoil spring is very strong and the tape is stiff when

NO MORE MISTAKES. Have you ever read a tape upside down and wrote 5/8 instead of 3/8? Can't do that with this tape. I'm not quite ecstatic about the markings; stud locations are very well marked at 16" intervals, however FOOT markings are small and not well differentiated from the other markings.So far, other reviewers were

I am just a simple DIYer with a skill saw as my only power tool for cutting lumber and doing projects. With the speed square I can now confidently and easily mark distances and straight lines (including angled lines), and I can now also easily cut in a straight line using the speed square as a guide (see YouTube videos on speed squares).

I'm an onsite septic designer and a good fiberglass tape is one of my most essential tools. I've had many types/brands, but these are by far my favorite and the only kind I buy now. Great medium weight, properly sized handle with good grip, quality construction, solid build quality, well designed crank and loop/hook end on the tape.

Very well made tape, love everything about it except the marker stake that comes with it. The stake is not as pictured and sticks to the outside of the tape frame and not down in a slot. The first time I went to remove the stake it snapped off where it snapped into the tape frame and now has to be carried separately. Not a big deal but

I've used this tape constantly around the homestead all year. I laid out 22 raised garden beds, a chicken run, an attached chicken garden, a 1,600 sq ft mini plow field, about 400 feet of property fencing and a 200 foot snow fence... and I couldn't have done any of that without this handy tape!

Feels good in the hand, has a reliable hook on the end so you can easily stretch it out over long distances.I thought having metric and imperial measurements on it would be cool as I work in both, but the sacrifice the comes with that is that the scale doesn't show the number of inches in between the foot markers.

Don't buy this tape measure. I love the easy-to-read numbers on the tape. The product itself appears heavy duty but the tape retracting feature broke on me after about the 5th use.

My Zabiki 25 ft/7.5 m Measuring Tape is a delight. I also liked my previous tape measure, which was a different brand. I like it that is, until the locking mechanism failed after perhaps 20 or 30 uses, though they were spread over four years. I used it as much in four years as a carpenter would use it in two days.

Cutting laminated shingles square and at precise lengths was a hassle. The Speedlight's 12" fence makes it much easier. For lumber, the square can guide the base plate of a saw.Because I keep putting the square down, the color helps me spot it when I need it again.On youtube, a carpenter showed speedquare like mine with black markings.

I like the bright color handy to spot in the wood shop or if dropped on the ground . Also like light weight in tool belt. Numbers and slash marks could be easer to read, better if they were contrasting color. Thats the only draw back. Hence the reason for 4 stars. But I took fine line black magic marker and highlighted the slash marks

This is a nice box. I like the tight lines that it leaves as opposted to the standard Stanley's or whatever classic brand box we all know.

I'm an electrical engineer and needed a ruler for work around electrical equipment. This ruler is all nylon-reinforced fiberglass and, per Klein, is non-conductive.
