Do you want to light up the night with a powerful and dependable flashlight? Promotional Maglites® have come to your rescue. Maglites, especially the LED models, are brighter than most flashlights. Maglite flashlights are shock and water resistant. They are the first choice of professionals looking for dependability, durability, and brightness. Although not advertised, some of these new styles incorporate the new “Cree” bulb technology. This greatly increases the Lumen brightness of the flashlight.

To operate an architect scale ruler, first look at the Title Block on the blueprint. It is located in the bottom right corner. This area contains valuable information to help you choose the correct scale: title of the drawing, the owner or customer of the project, names of the designer, drawer, pertinent ID numbers, and the supervisors. It has the page number, if multiple pages are involved, and the version number. It also has areas for the signatures of those who approved the drawing, and the dates they approved it.
There is also a small block that says what scale the drawing was made in. This is what you really need. Some examples are: 1″ = 30′, 1/4″=1′, 1/8″=1′, 1/2″=1’0″. If it is 1/8=1′, then use the side of the tape (more)……
How do you work a diameter tape? You don’t. It works for YOU.
A Lufkin Diameter Tape Measure will make your job quick and easy. Just wrap it around a pipe, pipeline, or other round object, and read its diameter right off the tape. Yes, you wrap it around the “circumference”, but it reads “diameter” for you. You don’t need to divide by pi (3.14159).
Most people don’t use a pipe diameter measuring tape. The reason is not that they don’t need one. The reason is that they don’t know how powerful it is. They don’t know what it can do for them. Just ask the people who use one every day:
pipeline installers and repairmen
oil and gas rig workers
sport ball makers
They will tell you this: If you want to know the outside diameter of a pipe or any round object, just wrap the diameter tape around its circumference, and read the diameter on the tape. Simple. You don’t have to divide by pi. The best part of this: Even if the pipe is not perfectly round, the od diameter tape will give you the average outside diameter as if it were perfectly round.
