How to Use Measuring Devices
On behalf of tvlesson.com, I'm Steve Anthony, a carpenter here in South Florida. In this clip in shoptools101, we’re going to talk a little bit about measuring devices. The cornerstone of your measuring devices of course, is going to be a tape measure. This one happens to be 35 foot locking tape measure. As you can see, it refracts automatically and locks into place, so you can use it one handed. You’ll notice that the markings are in place in such a way that you have everything is marked out to the inch and also to 16th of an inch. That’s the little lines of the 16ths. Big line in the middle, obviously, is a half or maybe not obviously. The larger lines are for quarters. The second to smallest lines are 8ths and the little skinny lines are 16ths of an inch.
You’ll also notice that there's another marking at every foot. So you can see one foot, two foot, three foot, so you can tell where you are. If you want to measure in inches, this particular model allows you to go all the way. It keeps going up in inches or if you look at the top of ruler, it goes to feet and inches. So in this case, like right here, this would be one foot six inches which is also 18 inches.
Now this one also has markings at 16 inches. This is use for framing for spacing between studs, for stab walls. That’s a common 16-inch on center, so you can -- this is kind of a little shortcut. That may or may not become an issue for you, but it’s nice to know if you need it. This is a combination square, so named because you have two angles here. You have 90-degree angle and a 45-degree angle. This is also very handy because it has a bubble level in the handle, so you can use that to see, determine that your surface is leveled. It’s also marked with rulers, top and bottom.
This is known as a tri-square. It’s simply a 90-degree angle. It also has rulers on the inside edge and outside edge and that’s for checking 90-degree angles. Scale ruler is very handy if you're looking at shop drawings that are in the different scales.
On behalf of tvlesson.com, this has been Steve Anthony. Thanks for watching.
