We need a tape measure for almost every project. I use mine all the time, but I had no idea that there were tools and features built into the tape measure.
Leah of “See Jane Drill” worked as a tradesman for 20 years before becoming a trades teacher. And she shares her tips on YouTube. Her video about tape measures really is helpful.
She shows 4 tape measure tricks in the video below. The first one is that each measure has a nail or screw grab feature. And that serrated part on the measure isn’t for design, but it’s there so you can mark your work.
Did you know about all 4 of these features in her video? Are there any that you can add?
