If reading a ruler is not your strong point, the eTape is for you. This tape measure features a digital display that tells you the fractional measurement in British imperial measure (inches) or metric (centimeters and millimeters) with the click of a button. It also has a memory function so you don’t need to remember or write down the dimension. Some folks will find this tool the height of laziness, but I prefer to jump right in and start working with wood, without worrying about making measuring errors.
A basic eTape is $29.95. A Bluetooth-enabled version costs $49.95; it can automatically transmit dimensions to a spreadsheet app. Contact eMeasureInc at 844-382-7326 or www.etape16.com.
