I do have 1 mtr rule but don't class it has accurate enough to be called precision.! Still leaps ahead of a tape thou.

    To give some idea of the quality and accurecy of a precision rule stamped on the Rabone is the warning "Only standard at 20c" and originally came with a certificate of calibration. I've had it for many many years and one of the nice things about living close to Sheffield is you drop across some high quality tools.

    My Stanley FatMax is accurate at 20 degC, it's written on it.

    Here compared with my Mitutoyo caliper over 150mm using digi microscope.

    I can't see any error because Stanley chuck any blades that fail their test

    I just checked one from the pound shop vs my 600mm digital caliper using mark one eyeball and it looks spot on. As expected, pointless exercise.

    How about if you include the hook, is it still spot on?

    Putting your scratch slightly off the mark is only human when all's said and done.

    Blaming your tape measure is even more human
