Joe, It has many features that other tape measures do not have. ie: Laying out circles and arcs, double read tape. reads like any regular tape, but when you measure to a corner it has a read out on top (which my picture does not show.) and though I don't use the level all that much, the squared sides are great for setting up a jointer fence, or double checking a saw fence for squareness to the blade and also the same for the router table.
I've used this one for twenty plus years and really wanted a back up or two in case this one is lost or broken.
In short it is a comfortable old friend. Rand
David! Don't waste the postage. Keep the tape and think of us every time you use it for as long as it lasts. Home Depot has thousands of 'em.
As for the French tape, Stanley stopped making it 15 years ago, so I just gotta take good care of this one.
We're glad you beat the storm home. But we sure do miss you already. And Rhodie has no one to nip at their heels. lol When Rhodie and Dex sit for their cookies, there is a BBBIIIGGG space where the lap puppy sat. lol
Buddy sure loves his cookies. Slip him a couple for us. Rand
Well, well, looks like it's your lucky day (even if it has arrived three years later.) I'm in Albuquerque, NM and I found a Nivometre N131 just exactly like the one you've shown above. I found it in a box of stuff I bought at a Yard Sale just yesterday. Is there anything more beautiful than finding a yard sale where a woman is selling her ex's tools?
Anyway, I'd be willing to part with this very cool (and unique) tool if we9 can come to a price. Let me know.
