This is somewhat unrelated but I figured I would share with you guys.
If you guys have ever taken a notice I am always using a Stanley fat max tape measure. I won't use any other brand tape measure. They are a little bit on the high side as far as price goes but I love the quality and feel of them. People say that are too bulky I just feel like that makes them that much more heavy duty. They have a great stand out and withstand any job you can throw at them.
I'm a carpenter by trade and do a lot of work so I'm a little rough on my tape measures with how much I use them. I have always saved my broken tape measures for an unknown reason, maybe I'm a horder. But them I discovered that Stanley offers a lifetime warranty on their hand tools.
So I sent the tape measures back 3 of which were mine and 2 that were my fathers. Yes this does seem like a lot of tape measures but that was a collection over like 2 years or hard work. And yesterday we got a package and they had replaced all the broken ones for brand new ones.
Idk about you guys but that just screams awesome customer service! If your in the market for a tape measure give them a try and I'm sure you will like them too.
