Although I was pleased with the accuracy a of both scales, the plastic post and retainer of the spring mechanisim failed after only 3 days of use.
great for quick center finding
Great for quick center finding. Very easy and fast to use. The tape is divided in two sections, upper & lower. Measure as normal from the top portion of tape, then locate that measurement on the bottom section & mark piece. It automatically finds center on the bottom portion of tape, very fast & simple. The issue is the bottom portion only breaks down to 1/8th's, no 1/16th of inch. Otherwise very handy
Excellant center finder for large pieces
I build furniture and some craft items and I have found this item to be accurate,easy to use and well marked.It is a must item for any tool collection.
tired of doing the math, use this tape
I make jewelry boxes, humidors etc. Center points are important for visual balance, book matching and the like. This item finds them instantly; no math, no human error.
You Don't know until you try it!
I am a serious non-professional, I use this tape tape measure almost exclusively. It has taken the errors out when doing division of fractions. You can still use it as a standard tape measure. For small work I use the 12" center ruler, it too has its benefits. I do allot of projects of my own design, with that said sometimes as you are building situations come into play where everything is not on a 1" center. This ruler saves gray matter
Remove all chances for math errors.
For thousands of years craftsmen have tried to develop techniques that reduce or eliminate the chance for human error. This tape certainly helps alot. A first glance you may think "who needs this, just cut the measurment in half, but once you get into reducing fractions on the fly the value of having this tape measure comes to light very quickly.
