Measuring Tape Magic

I have a thing for them; don’t know why, but I do. Maybe it’s the even spacing, or the dashed lines, or the simple and familiar font. Clearly, I’m not alone…

And lastly, for a practical use of this ubiquitous tool, mount a measuring tape on the edge of your work space. You’ll never fumble for a ruler again. Oh Martha!
