It’s a strange thing, to be a tape measure.
You have no idea how to measure something, so you go to a local business and ask for help.
There’s a tape, a piece of paper with a ruler.
You go over it, measure the length of the ruler.
Now you can measure the width of the tape.
“You can see that the tape is about the same width as the ruler,” says Ben Tully, a former professional tape measurer and now the editor of the online magazine Tutti Frutti.
“But you have to measure the ruler to get it the same thickness.”
It’s this thinness, Tully says, that makes tape measurers useful.
In fact, tape measure-rs are so important that in the 1960s, tape measures were required at many U.S. airports.
Now, they’re optional.
That’s because some businesses require you to take the tape measure and measure the tape, and the only way to know whether you’re measuring the tape correctly is to see it.
A recent survey of more than 1,000 U.K. businesses by the BBC found that only 10 percent of respondents said they were satisfied with the results.
Some businesses even go as far as to refuse you a job if you don’t have the tape measurement done.
“Some businesses will only allow you to work if you have a tape measurement,” says Richard Taylor, who works at a clothing store in the city of Birmingham, Alabama.
“That means you can only work there if you’ve had a tape measuring done.”
To make the tape measures more useful, manufacturers have taken advantage of the fact that tape measure operators are often trained to help people who are trying to measure their own clothes, a phenomenon known as the “tape plus” effect.
The tape measure is the only instrument that can accurately measure a material’s thickness, but the problem is that there’s a limited amount of tape that can be accurately measured, so most businesses only require one measure.
“Tape measure operators can’t do what they do with other instruments, which is to measure and report what they see on the surface,” says Taylor.
“There are only so many strips that can fit in a space, and that’s what we’ve seen.”
In many ways, it’s easier to do a tape-measure than to measure a surface.
If you have the right tape, you can do it with a piece that’s a few millimeters thick, or a thin strip of tape.
But the tape itself is usually about a millimeter thick, so it’s hard to get precise measurements.
“When you’re doing a measurement with a tape you’re actually getting more information than you are from any other instrument,” says Tully.
If your tape measure was measured at the factory, you could make an estimate by using the measurements in a factory scale, but you have no way of knowing how the factory measures its own products.
“It’s impossible to know for sure if it’s right or wrong, and it’s just not a very reliable tool,” Taylor says.
“So you end up having to use the manufacturers’ information to make a guess.
But then you have problems of accuracy.”
For example, the tape may be too thick for the measuring device you’re using, so a manufacturer might use a tape that’s not exactly the right size.
Or the manufacturer might choose to measure its tape at a certain angle, but it may not have the proper tape measure, and so the measurements will be off by more than a millimetre.
In other words, you end a measurement where it could have been made much more accurately if you had a proper tape.
You might also have trouble figuring out what the manufacturer is measuring, because the tape can be hard to measure.
In some cases, the measuring instrument itself may not be the problem.
“Sometimes you might have a product that you’re really interested in, but maybe the measuring tool you’re looking for is a bit different than what the product is,” Taylor explains.
“Then you can use the measuring information to tell the difference between what you’re buying and what the customer wants.”
It may seem like an easy fix, but manufacturers are often quick to point out that if the tape doesn’t measure correctly, it won’t work.
“If you want to make sure that you get a good measure, you need to use a reliable tape measure,” says Paul McDonagh, a director at the Institute of Measurement in London.
“Otherwise, you will end up measuring it the wrong way.
If it doesn’t have enough tape, the measurements are wrong.”
This can be a problem for people who have a very difficult time getting measurements.
If a product has a really large number of parts, a very precise measuring device is going to be needed to ensure the measurements stick to a certain shape or size.
And if you want something that’s just about right, you’ll need a very fine
