This quality bakelite case houses a 10 metre or 33 feet long fabric tape measure. It is the ideal for hobbyist and do-it-yourself enthusiasts. Easily measure around corners, for example.

Consisting of a tape or ribbon of fabric, plastic (vinyl) or fibreglass with measurement markings down its length, a flexible ruler is a common measuring tool – particularly for middle distance measuring (tens of metres) or for measuring curves or around corners. Easily portable and safer than equivalent metal or wooden devices, wind-up tape measures come in a sturdy case which holds a reel of the tape which can be extended by pulling the tape out, or retracted using a manual winding handle.
