Tally Books are similar to jotters, or pocket notebooks. All are useful for writing notes and small enough to keep in your shirt pocket or jacket pocket. What is different about “tally books”?
They are protected by a heavy duty vinyl cover, to help keep the pages dry when
you are working outside.
They have an optional “stone pad”. That is not paper, but it looks like paper. Stone pads are water resistant and you cannot tear them. If more people knew about them, they would prefer them over paper pads.
They have an optional clear vinyl 3 page insert. You can insert your own tables and data sheets for easy reference in the field.
For oil and gas industry users, the tally books have optional oilfield stock art which complements your company logo.
All-in-all, tally books are very rugged pocket notebooks for use in all kinds of weather. They are preferred by oil, gas, and wind energy companies. They use them for keeping track of repetitive data entries.
Pipe Tally Books are really designed for outdoor use. They are mainly used by oil and gas field workers. They keep track of continual data such as the number of pipes inserted into an oil well drilling rig. They have a weather proof vinyl covering. They are small enough to fit into your pocket, and be available constantly. Some of the new ones come with “stone pads”. They are waterproof and tear proof. They are a great improvement over paper pads. But pipe tally books can be used for any kind of writing. Here are 5 silly and odd uses. How many more can you come up with?
Composing a music score for a Broadway show.
Doodling while you are sitting on a jury.
Writing love letters to all your girlfriends overseas while at your best friend’s wedding.
Keeping track of your dairy cows medical care.
Writing police reports you read in the newspaper.
