Day 55 - The measure of it all

As a follow-up to the PhotoHunt post yesterday, I decided to show you some measuring tools. The metal ones are "store bought"; the wooden ones were bought at tool auctions. Below are 3 examples of rules commonly used by carpenters: a 2 ft. folding rule (oldest), a 6 ft. folding rule and a 20 ft. measuring tape (newest). Notice the hinges on the 2 ft. rule - it folds into a 6 in x 1in x 0.25 in package. (I have not yet bought into the laser devices.)
