When I use a tape measure I begin measuring from the 10" mark. I think most of the I accuracy in tape measures comes from the sliding hook at the end because you don't begin measuring exactly from the 0 mark. I also use the measurement as a general guide. It's rare that I need to make something to an exact length or width as long as the corresponding parts are the same.
