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

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.
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.

My best friend. Calipers are for suckers. If you take a lot of outside diameters on pipes and such this is a major time saver. Very accuratePublished 2 months ago by Tyson Burkle
