Smokey got me this for Father's Day but things have been hectic so I just got this last week. It is what everyone needs a 100 foot long tape measure.
This was made by Keuffel & Esser Co. aka K&E. They were known for slide rules and such. Also tape measures in various sizes. This one at 100 ft is about 5 1/2" across and weighs 2 pounds. It is heavier than it looks. The case is metal and covered with red leather. There is a lever that opens in the center to reel in the tape measure. It would take quite a while to reel in all 100 feet. The tape itself is in increments 1-12 inches and then at each foot there is a sticker at the foot mark to how many feet. Probably easier than reading 586 inches how ever much that is.
