Well, many years ago, I started my career working for a company that manufactured large (6" diameter), high voltage (400kv, 2000 amp) power cables that were buried many feet underground, or laid in cable trays in tunnels.

An essential part of our quality control tools was a diameter tape. We used it many times a day. Instead of graduations in inches (or millimeters), these diameter tape measures are graduated in units of circumference of circular (i.e., round) objects. Place the tape around the object to be measured, and what you read on the tape is the diameter of that object.

I've been tying to find one of these for a number of years. I do some volunteer work at a local State Park, and more often than you you might expect come across an old rusted galvanized pipe (or even some of the newer black ABS pipe that someone's put a pitch fork through). We all look at it trying to guess whether it's a 1.5" or 2" diameter pipe. Some of my colleagues try to use regular tapes to measure the diameter, - good luck on that one. I hand them my diameter tape, they wrap around the pipe, et voila, they read the diameter directly off the tape. I've also used it for vent and duct pipes - I don't know about you, but I find it tough to measure a 14" or 16" duct pipe from the outside.

This Lufkin tape is not as sturdy as the tapes I used several times a day many years ago, but for occasional use, it works well. I've "calibrated" it against pipes with known diameters, and its fine - as it should be with a device with a (Greek letter) pi * D multiplier.

So OK for occasional use, at a reasonable price.

I have used this W606PD tape for probably 45 years, for work applications primarily. I work in the rubber roller covering industry and these tapes are so durable and accurate (until now) and handy because they are so compact. The last batch of 6 that the company purchased has a problem with the printing of the lines on the diameter side that reads in 100ths. Your advertisement states that the zero line to start measuring is in the same position on both sides of the tape. That is true. But on the 100ths side, the first 100th line is about 1/32" farther past the start line than it should be. Normally when I check the diameter of a roller with this tape, to get a diameter reading that I know will be within about .003" to .004" of the exact true measurement, that measurement will be LONGER than exact. Yesterday when I used the Lufkin tape on a roller, the measurement was about .005" to .007" SHORTER than exact. Upon checking the tape I discovered the problem of the printing of the lines, as described earlier.

Check with your printer and get this problem corrected and I will give you a rating back up to 5 stars.

This is not the cheapest one that you can buy. But that is not what I want. I want a dependable tool. This is solid and built to last. Spend the money now and be done with the other disposable crap. Compact, sleek design is fantastic.

I carry this around with me at all times since I often need to troubleshoot parts for my projects. Having this in my pocket allows me to easily compare parts to drawings. The construction is solid and has not failed me!

Not many know this is available...yet if you need to know true diameter of any round object this item is what you need. Note it is quite small/compact...for most applications it all you need.

This the third one of these I've owned. I loose them occasionally, but I've never broken one. The markings are clear and easily read.
