JOHNSON LEVEL 25 FT TAPE MEASURE PLAN READER ARCHITECT 1/8,1/4 SCALE
The #1819-0025 sports a 1-1/16"-wide blade. It features exceptionally clear printing and large-scale numbers and markings that are easier to read in a wide range of conditions. Johnson gives all of their metal tapes their Blade-GardTM nylon coating that helps them to resist the abrasions encountered on all job sites.
The body of the PlanReader® Architect Series Power Tape has a rubber over mold that both helps protect the tool itself and makes it easier to grip. That same over mold also helps prevent marking of sensitive materials. The locking slider seems a bit oversize but that makes it easier to use even with gloved hands.
You have to turn the PlanReader® Architect Series Power Tape over to see the special feature. An equally clear set of scales in resolutions of 1/8” = 1ft and ¼” = 1ft are printed on the bottom surface of the tape making it simple to measure right off of scaled drawings or blueprints and translate those numbers to the correct dimensions on your work pieces.
That means you can skip the mental calculations and still get it right the first time. That makes your work go faster with less scrap. Both of those are especially important to contractors but also to the DIY community that likes to do quality work and save a buck whenever possible. Of course the PlanReader® Architect Series Power Tape also functions just fine as a regular tape measure when plans or blueprints are not part of the days projects.
