Okay, I've used several of these.  I've wondered about that black diamond.  Really never noticed a couple. 

 

:scratchhead:  But that "slide rule" trick.....lost me.  We were the last generation to use slide rules, I think.  But I wasn't in any math/science to use one.   I've always said tho, if I ever see one, I'll grab it.  Post Hooey....it might become a really valuable relic.

Who'd a thunk it. I knew about some of them but not all of them. I like the idea of that hole on the hook to slide over a nail head. I could have used that trick a number of times. Last year I got a laser tape measure. It's regular tape and also a laser measurer. I love that thing for measuring long rooms and decks etc. when I'm by myself. I can highly recommend it.

DH's job is basically measuring stuff.   We have so many tape measures.   He loves his laser measure and usually uses that on everything;  I'd second the recommendation.  

 

One time, DH pulled out his micrometer (measures to .001mm or .000039in), pointed it at my head and told me he was measuring my patience.

Laser measures are great. Dh had 2 of them. I still haven't gone through all of his things. It has been 7 months today and I am in no hurry to go through the tools, etc. And I just have to much other stuff to get done. But yes, that laser is great, I have even used it a few times.
