Easiest to read one I have found yet. 2 friends saw it and are also getting one. Great Christmas present for carpenter / handyman.
This tape measure does the job. It is not very long but it is perfect for small household tasks like hanging pictures. Measuring trim etc. It is really light and the tape does stick out a fair amount without bending. The numbers are really clear and it is easy to read. I do have a 30′ tape measure for longer tasks but it is pretty heavy and this one is easy to maneuver and hold onto when measuring small items.
This is the best tape measure I be used because the magnetic end and you can extend it out likeb13 ft before it collapses.
Good tape measure, blade doesn’t bend as easy as most and love the finger hold on the bottom
I’ve always been a fan of Milwaukee tools but this is my first tape measure from them. Before retiring, using a tape professionally for year on and off the job and for years I was hooked on the lever latch tapes. I got this tape because someone left it in the wrong section of the store and upon seeing it, I picked it up. It had features I liked, like the finger stop and it locks down nicely and easily. And the large numbers on both sides of the tape. So I bought it. And without even thinking about the magnetic tip. It actually came in handy taking a measurement at home. If I had one way back when, it would have been my tape.
This is a well thought out and perfectly designed product. From the magnet in the end of the tape measure (to hold it in place for you) to the large easy to read numbers on the top and the bottom of the tape measure, make it exceptionally easy to use.It feels very solid, and should last a long, long time.It is very stylish (for a tape measure) and the Red Milwaukee Color makes it easy to find when you put it down. I am absolutely delighted with this product, it is easily the best tape measure I have ever owned.
Excellent product and price.
Great new tape easy slid, strong magnetic tip large numbers front and back. Smaller than the one before it. I got three more.
I received my 16 foot Milwaukee magnetic tape today, and I like that the tape can be extended to over 9 feet before it starts to bend. The magnetic hook will come in handy for more than metal studs.This tape measure seems to be well protected if you should drop it, I have ruined metal cased tape measures before.The numbers are easy to read on the top and the bottom of the rule, and there is an architectural scale on the back of the blade if you use this tape measure for blueprints, etc. This Milwaukee tape measure has a lockable blade and also has a lifetime warranty.
