You may remember when I was complaining about losing all my tape measures and Vince ordered a dozen foreign tape measures. I said “I don’t want the ones made in China” and he said “Where do you think they’re all made?” He was right.
The ones from China arrived today.
The top one is right. I opened one to check it, because I check every tape measure before I use it (I count my pills from the pharmacy too). As soon as I saw it, I knew it was way off. When they’re pulled out exactly straight, the bottom one is 3/8″ longer than 1″. I can see being a smidgen off but that’s huge.
The weird thing is the centimeter side is spot on. I could keep them and use them because most patterns also have cm measurements but I’d get confused and screw up a project so he’ll either send them back or I’ll toss them.
