    Measuring tape - not only for measuring

    Good day

    This small idea, solved me the problem with the cords for tools like the router, sander, circular saw and alike....that are somehow always "on the way".

    I bet that you have many measuring tapes that are unused....that is, if you are junk collector like me

    Niki, I usually admire your "inventions", but not this one. :

    To begin with, yes I do have lots of measuring tapes, but at any given time I can usually only find one of them.
    Cheers, Frank

    I like the idea, Niki. Once again, you're thinking outside the box.

    Frank, if you had a pink and green tape like Niki's, it might be harder for you to lose in the shop.

    If I had a pink and green measuring tape......I wouldn't admit it!

    I'm not sure that tape would work here. It only works in metric.






    Niki, great idea.

    Thank you so much

    Frank
    By hanging one of them on the ceiling, you can always find at list one

    Well, those were the colors that they had in the "100 Yen shop" (less than a Dollar for one)

    Why do you think that all the dimensions are written in metric but I think that you have in USA those Metric/Imperial tapes so, it might work...not as good as "metric only" of course...
