Milwaukee 2 pack tape measure - $19.98

Home Depot - 2pack milwaukee tape measure - $19.98


Noticed these on special buy at home depot. 2 pack is less than the price of the single. Comes in both metric/imperial and imperial. As a carpenter, i go through 3-4 tape measures a year and these have been my favorite. Not as thick as fatmax and the belt clip is a wire clip, does not cut your pockets if youre like me and clip it there instead of your belt.

Saw these on display last week for > $30 and passed.

At this price I might reconsider.

It's too bad these are the lower end tape measures. The other ones Milwaukee sells are awesome! I believe the $30 2 pack contains one of each.

That being said, these are still nicer than 95% of tape measures on the market.

My dad always said "measure twice, cut once". I don't think he meant to use two different tape measures though.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't most construction items measured in imperial and not metric?

Call me old-school but I try and make sure I get imperial on both sides of the tape.

Actually the have metric with imperial as well. Most construction use imperial but some use a combination. I myself find it easier to use metric because fractions are hard heheh.

Another note, they were not located at the tape measure rack, but in the section where the special buys usually are.

Lower end milwaukee? Ive been buying milwaukee for a couple years and these are the top tape meausures they have. The only other style they have is the magnetic tip.

Odd the ones I saw were all imperial (noted by the 25ft on the tape), didn't see any 8m, or 26ft/8m.
I'll have to take a look again.

I am the same.

I don't do tape measure required jobs for a living but do a lot around the house. This is my current 'main' tape: https://www.amazon.ca/Komelon-SM5416-Gr ... rds=SM5416

As a child of the metric taught generation this style I found earlier in my DIY would help 'count'. Now I keep going back as it's a quick look vs. count. Still not as easy math as 2+2 though for sure.

Uhmm that metal head is supposed to in and out. If you notice the shift is exactly the thickness of the metal tip, that way if you measure by hooking, you get the same result as measure pushing up against the end (ie pushing the tip into something).
