This is a pretty interesting new take on a tape measure from Johnson Level that incorporates many of the basic features of a speed square into the tape measure itself. The Stud Squared 1812-0025 (coming soon) measures just like any other tape however the measurement of the tape itself is unique, exactly 1 stud width (1.5”) by 2 stud widths (3”). It also has a lip on each side and strait edges to mark your work surface once it has been measured. The only drawback we found was for those use to carrying their tape on a clip unfortunately this design leaves no room for a clip.
If we failed terribly at explaining the benefits of this tape measure don’t worry thanks to the wonders of the internet it is all explain very nicely in the YouTube video below.
