A Diameter Tape Measure is typically used to measure boring ol’ pipes. But did you know that you can really use it to measure anything cylindrical? Here are some fun holiday items to measure to spice up your holiday break:
While most people have used a basic tape measure at least once in their lives, not many of us have come across a situation where we’d need to use a diameter tape measure.
“How do I go about even using this bizarre tape measure?” you ask yourself.
Don’t worry, you don’t need to feel inadequate – all you have to do is just watch this quick video tutorial. It’ll have you feeling like a pro in no time!
It’s really hard to believe that there is only one day left of June. Did you also know that today is National Handshake Day? Here is some fun trivia that you may (or may not) know about handshakes:
– Used as a way for Roman soldiers to determine if the other person was holding a weapon
– Based on the above tradition, women would not usually greet each other with a handshake
– Secret handshakes are used in many organizations as a signal of membership
– Your customers will most definitely give you the biggest handshake (or even a hug!) if you give them a Diameter Tape Measure with your logo on it.
Today is a holiday that you will never have guessed in a million years: it’s National Hug a Plumber Day. Another thing you won’t have guessed is what the perfect gift is for these hard workers: a Diameter Tape Measure. This tool will help them (surprise!) measure the diameter of their pipes.
Trust us, they’ll thank you!
When you hear the words “diameter tape measure,” you probably think of contractors and other people who work closely with pipes. But today let’s try to expand your mind and think outside the box.
Today is National Meatball Day, and if I’m not mistaken, meatballs are also spheres that have a diameter. So today, whip out your diameter tape measure, wipe the sauce off your meatballs, and see if you can measure the diameter of your yummy meal!
No one can say no to a delicious homemade pie. Whether it’s apple, coconut cream, or pumpkin, a slice of fresh pie just hits the spot.
Today is National Cherry Pie Day, so have that be your flavor of choice just for today.
Did you know . . .
Before you slice into your cherry pie, you can grab your pipe diameter tape measure and calculate the diameter of this baked good!
Sure, you can measure completely normal and expected items with a diameter tape measure: pipes, trees, poles, etc. But how about we get a little crazy today and think of bizarre things that we can measure.
– water bottles
– your leg
– tater tots (it’s National Tater Tot Day!)
With only 4 days left until Christmas, I am sure many of you have been to countless holiday parties with coworkers and friends. Did any of these parties include a White Elephant gift exchange?
If you’re anything like me, these gift exchanges make me uncomfortable. No one is shopping for anyone in particular, so none of the gifts are personal. Odds are, you have received a few gifts from these parties that you would rather, well… re-gift.
Today is National Re-Gifting Day, a perfect time to re-wrap those less-than-desired gifts you’ve received this month, and give them to someone who will really appreciate them.
But the one gift you’ve received that I know you won’t re-gift is the tried-and-true diameter tape measure. It’s too good to give away!
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.
In 2021 and still in 2022, there are widespread supply chain issues worldwide. Many products that are made in China have had 2 problems making it to the United States. First of all, is their labor problem. Covid 19 outbreaks have closed down Chinese factories at least twice since 2019. Secondly, transportation issues have been another major issue. The price of shipping has increased drastically, and the port of Los Angeles had a bottleneck issue several months ago.
All these issues have contributed to the dramatic slowdown of raw materials and
finished products. Pipe diameter tape measures are no exception. Lufkin makes the most popular one, and has shipped only a small amount of inventory in the last 12 months to its distributors. At this point, August 2022, the future of more shipments is uncertain. An alternative diameter tape is made in China, the Pi-Cobra Diameter Tape. Shipments are due in the United States shortly, but maybe not soon enough or big enough to satisfy the need of customers.
A Pipe Diameter Tape Measure is used by oil companies and Water utility companies. The oil companies are doing very well right now, due to the profitability of oil drilling. So their need for these tapes is higher than the supply. This is driving up the price of the Pi-Cobra tapes. Hopefully, this supply chain problem will soon come to an end.
