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.

Love these, use them daily on the job... for many years.
Five stars if they would put metric on the reverse side so I wouldn't have to carry two.

After hard use for 4 or 5 months I usually have to take the cover off and add a couple rounds to the spring tension to get positive retraction of the tape back. Takes about 2 - 3 minutes. Clean the tape when dirty, don't kink it, and it usually last me about a year in daily use. The riveted on end snapping off is usually what kills them.

Metal case and tape. Extracts and retracts smoothly. Easy to read, accurate numbers. Can't beat this model for measuring uneven or round objects accurately. Very compact and lightweight while retaining strength. For me, 6' will be all I need 90% of the time. People keep asking me where I bought this. Recommended.

I use these professionally, taking tree diameters in 10th of an inch. I measure 30-40 trees /day. The paint eventually wears off after hundreds of measurements. Ive never had one of these mechanically fail, just become difficult to read.

Wait. Ive also had the ends break off, swallowing the tape. I always wrap the ends in electrical tape to prevent this. I make an inch or inch and a half nubbin to grab onto. With this modification, Ive never had a problem.

If longevity was improved, would be a perfect product.

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.

Very good tape measure for how small it is. I used it quite a lot at work until it was stolen. I have many other lufkin tape measures and prefer their "control series" over stanleys fatmax tapes. Lufkin makes an excellent product and this is a prime example of what they're all about.

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!
