This is only true if whatever you are doing doesn't have to fit or interact with materials and equipment and other items made to standard dimensional units.

But if that's the case there's no point to using a ruler at all, just make a story pole on a piece of scrap wood or thin cardboard to mark off dimensions you need to reproduce and match.

True...and a perfect illustration of why carpenters and fabricators going for tolerances closer than +/- 5/16" don't rely on the hook end of tape measures and "burn an inch" by starting measurements from the 1" mark and add it back on to the figure they get after reading the tape.

Even rulers can have inaccuracies on the "idiot end" (from manufacturing or damage/ modification...or both) and where tiny discrepancies matter like scale rules they force you to avoid relying on the end of the device as an accurate increment by starting the marks well away from it.

I'm pretty sure they have some international definitional unit in France somewhere, so you should call them up and compare

Wrong. It can fit, but you'll have to measure it first with your unique tape.

>> No.2789440

>Measure materials made to standard size with your tape measure
>Use those measurements instead of listed measurements

Also, story poles save sooo much time when you're doing repeatable tasks

>> No.2789574

Do people really not understand the purpose of the end of the tape measure having a bit of slide in it? Hint: it's not a mistake and it's not sloppy manufacturing. It's there for an obvious reason that anyone with a three digit IQ should be able to figure out without being told.

measure with a piece of paper, a single inch, check both tapes are accurately an inch anywhere along it, then use the marked 1 inch paper, to check which tape measure is more accurate, from the 1 inch mark back to the end of the clip

or just measure the paper and choose the one measuring 11 inches
