Make Measuring Small Distances Easy with a Hole Punched Tape Measure


It’s not always easy to measure precise distances on the fly with a tape measure. If you want a quick method, Instructables user bfk suggests punching out holes with a hole punch so you can quickly judge distance and make marks.

The idea here is that with the holes punched out in the tape measure you can instantly make a level, precise mark on a wall if you’re planning on drilling or nailing something into it. Likewise, it makes it easier to quickly judge short distances. At a glance, it looks like it’d ruin the structural integrity of the tape measure, but bfk says it holds strong. Head over to Instructables for the full guide.
