I got that same one and only paid a penny for it because someone at Home Depot don't know how to properly price items and got to use scop on it.....

I have 5 or 6 stanleys of various lengths,an ace hardware 25' thats actually pretty nice,also compact. I have a Starrett one i use fairly often.

being a machinist for many years early in my career I have a bad habit of having a square stock block exactly 12" long that I have to check tape measure all the time almost OCD in fact.......just another unknown comp56 secret.....

Sometimes you they just jump in your cart, I probably have just as many but when I'm working in projects I usually have a few laying around by each spot in working yet I still find myself reaching realizing all of them are in the same dang spot lol.

ya at my age it is cheaper for me to have a tape measure hanging at every tool station than to clip it on my belt........basically i forget about it if I can't see it.....

I have one in each tool bag. When I'm welding and have my welding gear bag with me I don't want to dig through my other bags and get grease and manure over everything to get to my tape in my electrical bag. That and I'm a tool addict and I buy ones that are on sale to see if they're worth their salt.

Ha, well I guess my job is just too clean then! Except for the times I'm in a trench fitting together sewer pipes. .... buuut I can see myself buying more tape measures in the future ☺

I've dealt with cast iron septic pipes, never sewage pipes though. At least not human sewage anyways....
