- Apr 2, 2010I was a little disappointed in this year's April Fool's day tool (especially compared to the more wacky stuff they've come up with in the past)... I actually have and use a tape measure much like one of these on a regular basis... Mine is made by Fastcap and came from Woodcraft. here's the link:
The surface is designed to be written on with pencil and the tape measure has a built in pencil sharpener which is extremely convenient. It's by far my favourite tape measure in the shop and house, primarily for its story-stick properties...

Yeah, except this year, it's a real product.
Actually seems like kind of a cool idea too. IF
You could use some kind of temp marker on it (whiteboard markers
perhaps?) ... that could be wiped off when done.
I could see setting up to make a bunch of X ... and just saying out the
story-board of them on that tape, instead of a stick (like I do now), or
remembering 3 sets of numbers (which eventually get mungled and turn
into one wrong cut - grrr)
Granted, you could do the same w/ a regular tape and a marker. But
feels 'wrong' to write on your already marked tape :)
