Architects, designers, and planners use architect scale rulers in their work every day. Here are 3 ways that an architect scale ruler can help a homeowner like you, too.
Plan a new arrangement of furniture in your living room. Whether you just
moved in, or you just want to make a fresh arrangement of your furniture, you can start with a piece of paper and an architect scale ruler to see if your plan will actually fit the way you want it to fit.
Design a new kitchen in your home. The best way to start is to find a picture of a kitchen in a magazine, then see if the components will fit into your space. An architect ruler will let you make precise measurements in your drawings of different kitchen designs.
Design a garden in your back yard. If your space is limited, the architect ruler will help you to make the best of the space you have. You may discover that you don’t need to buy as many tomato plants, or pepper plants.
When you need a rugged USA-made flashlight, you normally choose Maglite Flashlights. But here’s a new reason to choose America’s favorite torch:
Choose the NEW Maglite® with the Red Light bulb. Why red?
Red light is easier on the eyes than white light.
Red light is easier on the eyes than any other color, especially blue.
Red lighting is used in confined spaces like airline cockpits, boats, and truck cabins. The visual spectrum of light goes from red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. As we go from red to violet, the “energy” and frequency of the light increases. The higher the energy and frequency, the more disturbing it is to the eyes. I once had a car with red lights instead of blue ones in the dash. I noticed how pleasant the red lighting was.
Here is the newest wavelength technology from Maglite®…
Giving a Maglite engraved with your logo is a great idea if you own a business. Your customers and employees will love it forever. Here are some tips to make your project a success.
Choose a reputable online Maglite® company that specializes in laser engraving Maglites and other high quality business gifts.
Find your best art file. The neatest art is vector art. Examples of vector art are .eps and .ai files. Sometimes .png and .pdf files are vector. This is the language that today’s best laser machines use. Don’t worry, if you don’t have vector art, the engraving company can convert your art for free, or for a very small charge.
Determine which Maglite® is best suited for this job. Maglites® also come in gift sets with Leatherman® tools or other tools or knives.
Order the right quantity, but add a few extra. You might decide later to use these as Christmas gifts for your relatives and friends.
Order early enough to meet your deadline. Production time is usually a week or
Good luck on using Maglites® as quality business gifts!

Oil well inspection
Gas well drilling and inspection

As a bonus idea, you can have your customer’s logo on the front, and your logo and contact information on the back.
Lufkin® has a world-wide reputation for making high quality tape measures. They used to make them in the USA, but they have shifted the production facilities to Mexico. Some of the tapes are made out of a cast case, which is highly polished and chrome plated, like the w906pd. Others, like the w606pd have a stamped case, which is shiny and chrome plated. A third type of case is black plastic, like the asw616pd. However, the tape blade inside is the same in all 3 types of cases. It is capable of measuring diameters up to 23 inches.
Pi-Cobra is a brand name for diameter tapes made with
a cast case which is chrome plated. It can hold a longer tape blade, capable of measuring diameters up to 38 inches. The case is very durable. These are manufactured in China.
Various other Chinese manufacturers make versatile OD tapes like the 416-04-024-P. The back side of the tape measures diameter up to 24″ in 100ths of an inch or 610 mm. The case is plastic, and has a key ring attached to it.
The UT-56675 is made in the USA. It is capable of
measuring pipes up to 45 inches in diameter. This is a belt tape, not a pocket tape. The calibrations are in tenths of an inch diameter.
Promotional Maglites® (some people spell it Promotional Maglights, but that is an incorrect spelling) are the most famous flashlights in the world. When you have your corporate logo laser engraved on them, you have just made the perfect gift for your customers.
They are USA-made.
They are durable and dependable.
They can be put into gift sets with Leatherman® tools or pocket knives.
Pi Day is March 14. This year you can help celebrate by answering the question at the bottom.
Pi is the constant ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, no matter what size the circle is. This is useful knowledge when you work with water pipes or oil or gas pipelines, and you need to replace part of it. You can measure the circumference and divide by pi. But there’s an easier way to do that.
Let a Lufkin Diameter tape measure do it for you. You just wrap it around the pipe, and read the diameter. Mathematicians call pi an irrational number, since it goes on for an infinite number of decimal places, but using a diameter tape is a very rational and easy way to find the diameter of a pipe.
