Not measuring up . . .
Phil warns us that not all measuring tapes are created equal.
I found it interesting that the Chinese tape (the bottom one) lined up perfectly with the 1" squares on the measuring board, whereas the Taiwanese tape (the yellow one) didn't. I'd have expected the problem to be the other way around.
At any rate, I'm going to check my tape measures against an accurate scale. I suspect I may be unpleasantly surprised by some of them . . .
