Item details

Vintage tape measure, retractable cloth wind-up tape, 50 feet, carpenter tool, wind-up ruler, olive green round metal case, 1940s, guy gift, made in USA, price reduced and ready to ship to you!!

This retractable 50 foot round tape measure is a very handy tool for the carpenter, handyman, or even seamstress! The cloth measuring tape is pulled out from the side and is retracted by lifting the hinged handle located on the top and turning until the tape is back in the case. The numbers are still clearly marked on the cloth tape, and each foot is measured individually and separately from 1-12 inches (every foot the numbers start with "1" again) see photo...very cool. The hinge says "made in U.S.A" but there is no name of the manufacturer.

The olive green case measures 4"...can fit in the palm of your hand. It has some light scratches and ground-in dirt, which I tried to wipe off the best I could; however, this is to be expected on a tool that is over 60 years old and was well used. It belonged to my dad. This would make a great gift for that dad or guy who appreciates vintage tools and how well made they were years ago!!
