This Tape Measure From Johnson Level Will Stick With You

This tape measure from Johnson Level  has a magnetic personality. For only 11.00 you can have exact expertise at your fingertips. You can find this on several different web sites such as http://www.amazon.com/ ranging from $13.00 to 15.00 plus shipping.  Along with a full line of laser equipment Johnson has hand measuring devices for the home and on the job. With a minimum of money over all of the rest of the retailers you can be sure that you are getting a good deal and a very dependable tape measure.

Description
Since this tape measure is just slightly larger than the rest of its predecessors, it remains to be that it is going to be slightly heavier than the other models. This particular model 1806 only weighs 15 ounces and has a large easy to use black locking button. The blade is 1-1/16" wide and 3-3/16" high and 3-3/8" from the front to the back, this is also only 1 ¾" from to side. 
 
Just like all of the other styles that Johnson offers this has the patented "Tiger claw" blade hook end and nylon coated blade, with double sided measurements. This blade is not shiny like the other brands because of the nylon coating which will help prevent against nicks and abrasive marks.  There is a magnet at the end to help with one handed operations. In addition to the magnet there is an extra hook that faces upward to allow you to hook the blade from the top or sides.

Unlike all of the other manufacturers of tape measures, this tape measure has a rubber coating that covers the entire outer shell of the tape measure and will allow you to drop it from just about any height and not worry about it getting damaged. The built-in magnet at the end of the blade, will allow you to do inner and outer measurements with ease. Since, there is four stainless steel rivets to hold the blade hook in place, three of them loosely and one solid will make it easier for this type of measurements.

Experience
I have been doing a lot of remodeling lately and the better tools that I have at my beckon call the quicker that I can finish my job. I have been doing this for over forty years and it never ceased to amaze me how they keep coming up with new tape measures and how they work. The different applications that you can use this for is astounding.

When you are trying to work alone or have to work alone you will definitely need a tool that will be your friend, and not someone that you have to fight with to get the job done.  Because of the rigid shape the tape measure has held its shape and stayed out when even eight feet of tape has been pulled. The tape has helped me measure cabinets and countertops with one hand.

Since most of the jobs that I do, I am alone I need that extra strength in my tools such as a tape measure make the job a lot easier. This one from Johnson stays rigid a lot farther that the other brand names. The other tape measure brand names usually drop off at about six feet and less.  The cases on the other ones are either a thin plastic or metal an break up on impact.

Conclusion
If you do not have a choice as I do, then any brand name tape measure will do. But, since I have the choice then I would choose the Johnson level products. They seem to tip the scale when it comes to durability and technology. These types of tape measures from Johnson get five stars in my book.
