Testimonials

I saw this on Facebook and thought it would be a cool Christmas gift for our son in law. After I received it I think I'll have to buy him another one. This is a well built 25' tape measure that is easy to read and the built in pencil is a fantastic idea.

It is super handy and easy to use for projects. Particularly woodworking and drywall work. It's super easy to drag a straight line down a large sheet of material to make a long cut. Or pre-set the tape measure with a measurement and make your mark in hard to reach places.

Another stocking stuffer for my hubby for the win! My hubby is so used to stealing pencils from inside I had to remind him of the built in graphite marker a couple of times. But now he's so used to it when he grabs a different tape measure he's peeved he's gotta revert an old fashioned pencil!

I purchased this for my dad as a gift. He is a pretty avid carpenter, so he is big on measuring twice, cutting once. After few days, he got hooked on using the marking feature, and he loves it. He used it building a 20'x30' garage and said it was super helpful. Great gift!

Patented RollMark Technology

The marking system works like this: There is a stick of graphite directly above the small steel wheel. As the wheel rolls, it transfers the graphite to the surface being marked. The result is a pencil line, without the pencil, and it never needs to be sharpened, and it can't break.

TruView WEDGE Indicator

It looks like a wedge shape from the front, but as you look from above, it becomes a single line. It acts as a gun site, eliminating the parallax effect and letting you make an extremely accurate mark.

A Brief History of Tape Measures

A Brief History of Tape Measures

The next big change to measuring tapes was blade standout, or what I call the blade standout wars, which Stanley won hands down with the FatMax, by patenting the 1.25" wide blade combined with the brilliant  geometry of the curve of the blade as shown here in John C. Murray's 2001 patent.Stanley tapes is king of blade standout

LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY - FYI: A woman that worked at the return counter of a major lumber yard chain, once told me that you could leave a contractor alone in the desert, naked, with an anvil and when you came back the next day, the anvil would be broken and he wouldn’t know how it happened… The point being that contractors are capable of breaking anything, so if you break your QuickDraw tape, please know that we have you covered.

Building with the QuickDraw tape measure- Weekend project - 

The problem:  an exterior utility door, that's got a fair amount of dry rot, and the brass hinges and latch are caked in 50 years of paint.  

For tools, besides my Quickdraw tape, I've got a chop saw, a skill-saw, a screw-gun, and a plainer, but no table saw, so, I'll measure, and mark with the quickdraw, then cut the boards to 38" using the chop saw.

If you really are tired of struggling financially… If you really want to turn your life around, you have to make a conscious decision.

You have to change your perception of focus and discipline. 

For the gates of success to open, focus and discipline have to become your friend.  Once you start implementing focus and discipline, it’s liberating, because it breeds success and success gives you freedom! You can do this, and Chapter 4 shows you how.

Best Father's Day gift ever!

Best Father's Day gift ever!

Best seller for Father’s Day… this tape measure has a built-in marking device. It never needs sharpening, can’t break, and makes 2000+ marks per load - comes with 10 reloads and a marking keychain that holds the refills

For the dad that has everything, except a pencil when he really needs it, the QuickDraw Pro self-marking tape get's the job done in spades.  

The magic is in the way it works on all kinds of surfaces, no mater how rough, because the mark is made by a small hardened steel wheel, that rolls out the graphite, but the wheel itself can't break. Think of it like a ballpoint pencil, except it's a wheel.

Top rated tape measure review - We’ve all been there, in that moment when we’re ready to make our mark, and realize we don’t have a pencil behind our ear... so we put the tape measure down, and we’re off on mission to find a damm pencil... 5 minutes later, we’re ready to get it done, and the pencil lead breaks !@%#^! OK, calm down, we just need to find something to sharpen it with... 

Point being, if you work with a tape measure everyday, or just once in a while on a home project, you will love the new innovation of the QuickDraw self-marking tape measure, but it’s much more than that. It also: 

1. makes a perfect circle 

2. gives you an extra hand to hold the blade in place for a more accurate mark

3. duplicates measurements easily

4. makes difficult measurements easy

5. saves time and frustration by never having to look for a pencil (or a sharpener) again
