Richard L from Angora, MN Posted January 23, 2013
I got tired of trying to do layout work with the standard tape measure so bought the flat measure and have been extremely pleased with it. Something that is very handy is the ability to clamp the tape to a board while doing layout with say an Irwin clamp without damaging the tape. In addition to the usual upside lever lock which is very smooth to operate, unlike some of my other tapes, is the brake on the bottom side easily activated with the forefinger to temporarily hold the tape at any length without locking it. Great feature! The photo on the Rockler site of the back side of the tape is not what I received which is OK by me. I like the belt clip on the tape I received as it can be levered with the thumb to partially open it - avoids the struggle to get it on a thick tool belt. On the tape I received, the pencil sharpener is built in on the side. I should have bought one before this.

This is an amazing ruler. You measurements are more accurate because the tape is laying flat. I recommend this product to anyone that works with wood.

I purchased the flatback tape just to see how well it worked. I found out that it had a very reasonable price and it could do just about anything that a regular tape except for a couple things. It work great for measuring around any round or not straight surface. It is easy to read also. The little sureface on the one side comes in real handy for writing down measurements. It would be more useful if it was a 20' or 25' length. The main thing that I miss with this tape is the stiffness. It is hard to slide the tape down the board to catch on the end of the board. But, that is why you got the tape for in the begining. so that you can measure around unflat surfaces. The main reason that I did not give it an excellant rating was the length of the tape. The 16' tape never seems to long enough. It is a great buy and I would recommend it to anyone who asked.
