SWANSON TOOL’S latest tape measures include the GripLine, designed to grip rounded edges up to 2” in diameter, and the ProScribe (photo), featuring a retractable 1-1/2” rigid scribe guide and centering pin.
The ProScribe integrates several marking functions, including the compass-like ability to measure and scribe circles, as well as the chalk-line-accuracy to measure and mark/score straight lines. Users can also easily position a case knife or carpenter’s pencil against the tape’s metal tip to cut/score or mark the desired width.
