  1. A nice little video from Mike Peace talking about how to make quick measurements a little easier.
  2. While I use the same tape / rule / square for a given project I still do other work outside the shop requiring different tape measures. Do I really need a 25 ft tape to measure most shop projects inside a 16x20 shop, hmmm no. But work outside doing forms for concrete, building sheds I do need one. Then of course we come to specialty tapes such as a center finder tape or a metric tape. Yes I know about the ongoing debate of Imperial verses metric. Not even going in that direction. Previously I had them laid out in a drawer and that worked well until I got a new 25 ft one and it just was too big to fit. Jammed the drawer more than once and said enough. While I was at it I also could use a place to put my glasses. On top of the oscillating sander was not a good place. Added some pencil storage because I always seem to be needing one and you can never have them close enough to what you are working on at the time. Small project, still takes several days to do finish work and let cure well before installation. It is all about the details. Used some rubber backed flooring turned rubber side up to protect the wood from the viscous tape measure ends. Also keeps them all canted at a slight angle. In theory this keeps them from falling down. Once done a great addition that will prove useful for years to come. We like pictures so I took a few as the installation went along.
  3. FREE rulers and other stuff https://www.thebalanceeveryday.com/free-printable-rulers-1357491
  4. A free download of Boxwood and Ivory by Philip Stanley on every boxwood and Ivory ruler Stanley Made. A great resource for four fold boxwood rulers
  5. At the Flea Market this morning I also found this two awesome Stanley Boxwood Folding Rulers. Stanley made several type of Boxwood Rulers, imagine that, much like the planes they made. They made them with several different features so like everything you have to look at all of it. Both of these are Square Joint Rulers. Here is a listing of just some of the Stanley Boxwood Rulers. So I was able to find two, one is a Stanley No. 61 and the other is a Stanley No. 62. The first one is a No. 61 that is a Square Joint with 8th and 16th graduations. This ruler is from between 1907 and 1909. The second is a No. 62 this is also a Square Joint but with 8ths, 10ths, 12ths and 16ths. It is a Sweet Hart Logo. The thing about the SW logo is it went through several modifications. The one on this ruler is from 1922 to 1935. Notice the difference in the top of the heart. In the later version it stopped at the edge of the box around Stanley. In the earlier version the top of the heart went into the box. This is the latest of the SW logos. This has a little wider heart also. And this was the earliest of the SW logos. The heart is narrow and goes will into the box with the Stanley more rounded around the heart. These rulers fold open at the hinge. Then they open at the joint to make a 24" ruler. The older one has a joint that is out of line, but it appears to be solid. The newer ruler is nice and straight and in good condition. I think Lew was right, I am going to need a bigger display case. Happy Patriot Picking.
  6. I picked this up from another site. Maybe someone can use it. I thought it was pretty neat- http://printable-ruler.net/all-online-rulers?lang=en
