I had a hard time finding a tape with an engineer scale at the big box stores. My only complaint is at the end of the foot the inch/tenth count starts over instead of giving you an overall length. By this I mean 38 inches is 3foot plus 2 inches instead. Not too big of a deal because it's simple math but would be better with an overall count.

Great tape measure for construction workers
By Lyle B. Griffith
Let me start out by saying this tape measure is not for everyone but if you are doing commercial construction work it is great. Most often on any kind of grades such as parking lots storm drains building floors everything is done in tenths of an inch which means one foot is divided into 10 equal measurements instead of 12 inches. What makes this the perfect tape measure for me is it has both tenths and inches on the same side of the tape so if somebody says you need to cut down 1.5 meaning tents that I can look at the tape and know that is equal to 18 inches which is very handy for me because sometimes I can't quickly convert that in my head. There is one thing they could have done to make this tape measure even better in my opinion on the inch scale it stops at 12 inches so if I need to measure something for example 27 inches I need to know that is 2 foot 3 inches not a real big deal but just have to know what your inches are, would not be able to see 27 actually on the tape measure because it shows every foot and 12 inches in between but does not count up all the inches like 27 or whatever.

Engineering scale plus fractions perfect for me.
If you need both fractions and hundredths...this is the tape for you. I am replacing my 20 year old Lufkin. The only complaint I have is that the tape body is not measured. My old tape was 3" exactly so I could add 3" to the measurement by running the body flush up against a corner of a workpiece.
