General Knowledge about the steel tape measure
A steel tape measure is frequently used to certify a record performance in the throws or 
jumps. However, according to the rule books, a steel tape, by itself, is not enough:
What a steel  Tape Measure Does?
A tape measure is a portable measurement device used to quantify the size of an object or 
the distance between objects. The tape is marked along the tape edge in inches and 
fractional inches, typically in quarter-, eight-, sixteenth-inch increments. Some tape 
measures are marked in millimeters, centimeters, and meters on one edge.
How to Use a steel Tape Measure Safely?
Tape measures are relatively safe and easy to use. Extend the tape from point to point 
placing the end-clip at the location you want to measure from. Most tape measures have a 
clip that can be attached to a fixed object to measure spans easily. Many steel blade 
tapes have tension-control brakes that lock the blade in place for measuring spans. Longer 
tapes have a crank on the side of the case to retract the cloth tape.
How to maintain a precision steel tape measure?
Be sure that the work pieces have stopped. Measuring work pieces on lathes should be 
carried out only after the work pieces have stopped; otherwise, the accuracy of the tool 
may happen.
What Are Measuring Tools?
Measuring spoons are some of the most basic cooking tools. They usually come on a ring and 
in sizes ranging from a quarter tablespoon to a full tablespoon.
