How to Get a More Accurate Measurement from Tape Measure Using Old Shop Tricks
posted on August 1, 2011 by Woodworker's Journal
Making Measurements To avoid having to lose an inch on your measurements, starting from 10" can give you an accurate measure and make readings a bit easier.

For accurate measurements with my tape, I use an old shop trick and start at the 10" mark instead of skipping the first inch. That way, the numbers read 1 to 9 and I don’t have to remember to account for the missing inch.
