Tape Measure Accuracy

I was on one job, nailing siding on a gable on the 2nd floor. I would call a measurement down to my helper, and then receive a board in return that was constantly in need of re-cutting. Part of it was the bent tip of the tape, part may have been two different people, and part may have been the cutting, either way it's best to compare when using two or more tapes

Tape Measure Accuracy

Now that situation is where two tapes must be accurate and agree, unless you are throwing the same tape back and forth.
