Now that the 2022 Holiday season is upon us, many people have begun shopping for their nearest and dearest. It is easy to get caught up in all of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, spending money on frivolous items. That’s why today is an important day to remember during the holidays: Giving Tuesday. Consider this: – Donate money to a local charity or non-profit in your area -Order a Lufkin tape measure and donate them to a local company
It’s the age-old question: should Daylight Savings be permanent or not? Sure, we get to have an extra hour of sleep this Sunday, but that also comes with an earlier sunset. Having the sun set before dinnertime is a little silly, right?
What if a diameter tape measure could solve this problem? To be honest, it probably wouldn’t help at all, but it would be a nice promotional gift to your customers.
Are you itching for a promotion or a raise? Usually hard work pays off, but when it doesn’t, you can always resort to a little harmless bribery, right?

It’s a worldwide debate: Imperial vs. Metric Which side are you on? Here in the United States, we follow the imperial measuring system, which consists of inches and feet. However, most of the world follows the metric system (centimeters, meters). For the benefit of everyone, diameter tape measures come in both metric and imperial styles, so no matter which side of the debate you are on, you can find a style on which to put your company logo.
Unfortunately, there are none in stock anywhere. Lufkin doesn’t even have any.
They have continually moved back their ship date since January 2022. At this point, I won’t be happy until they tell us that they shipped us some tapes.
I don’t know whether it is a raw material shortage, labor shortage, or otherwise. This problem has existed for 12 months now. I can’t imagine what the problem might be with Lufkin/Apex.
Yes. Definitely. The Pi-Cobra tapes are an excellent substitute. The T217-6654 measures pipe diameters up to 38 inches, in 100ths of an inch. Your imprint can even be put on both sides of the case, at an extra charge. It is also available in metric scale (T217-6657).
Ask any Arborist. Ask any oilfield worker. They will tell you how vital a diameter tape measure is to their jobs.
An Arborist needs to quickly determine the diameter of a tree, because he probably has to do this to another thousand trees. He uses this measurement to determine the amount of wood contained in the tree, so it can be sold for the wood content. For convenience and speed, he measures the diameter at the height of his chest. Diameter breast high (DBH) is the term used for this height. A tree diameter tape has a hook at the beginning, so the user can attach it to the bark, walk around the tree, and have the tape meet the zero mark. He reads the number on the tape, which is the diameter in inches.
He just cleans off the pipeline and wraps the tape around it. The answer is shown on the tape where it lines up to the zero mark. It’s important to him because he needs to know how much oil or gas the pipe can carry. Also, if a fitting needs replaced or modified, he needs to order the right size. Diameter tapes are a vital part of the oil and gas business.
Since December 1, 2021, the Lufkin Diameter Tape Measure has disappeared from all retail shelves. Why? I am guessing it is because of the widespread supply chain issues. Every industry has been affected by this problem in 2021. The procurement of steel has been a problem, according to “Cheddar News” on October 18, 2021. The price of steel has also gone up.
The good news is here:
We expect to receive inventory of the Lufkin Diameter Tape Measure in April 2022. We plan to fill the back orders that have piled up since December soon. There are Chinese diameter tapes available now, but many customers would rather wait for the beloved Lufkin tapes.
