Hi everyone. This is Tool Talk. My name is Ben Curry from Electrical Innovations, electrician over in Derby. Today I'm going to be viewing these Kamelon tape measures. Chameleon? Comilon? I don't know how you say it. Anyway, it's a PowerBlade II, and you'll have to excuse the selfie cam. It's all being backwards. You'll have to take my word for it. It's a five metre tape measure in that. I've seen these on Expert Trades in the Facebook group, people saying they were the favourite tape measure of choice and I'd not thought any more of it. You know, things just go over your head on Facebook nowadays. Everyone's saying the best of everything. And then I saw them on a trade counter and I needed a tape measure so I thought I'd pick one up. So I haven't been disappointed. They've been pretty good. They quite robust and I say they 'cause I actually picked up two of them. And they were quite cheep as well. I think they were less than a tenner each. Obviously local prices may vary, but what I like about them is the solid.
When you drop them, not gonna break 'cause they're pretty hard metal, plastic and rubber. The tape measure itself has got numbers and letters, both sides, inches, millimetres, and all the rest. Both sides so you can see what's going on. Nice in black and yellow so you know I like that [inaudible 00:01:20]. It's got an orange stripe with green stripes on the label so you can actually see it when it's in your tool bog. Yeah. Really good. Super boring thing to talk about isn't it. Tape measure. What's the best tape measure. Actually they're really good and when other people see 'em, they say, "You got a tape measure I can borrow?" And you hand them one of these, they always go, "mm, fancy." So nine times out of ten that's the sign of a good tool when people are like, "mm fancy." Yeah. I like it. It's got a magnetic thing on the end so you can have tape measure wars and you can see who's got the strongest tap measure.
Also means when you're going like that, you can stick it to if you're measuring something metal. If you're measuring to, like a kitchen unit, you can magnetise it to the nearest screw on there or something like that. Actually if you look at ... I've got a like van window now. Don't worry I'm not parked on the road, there's nothing coming. They've got quite a bit of ... What's that? Do you see that? 80 inches, two metres. It's got ... You can go quite some distance, still going. Two and a half metres, there's two and a half and 2.8. Oh. That was pretty extreme wasn't it. 2.8 metres before it wound back in. Yeah. It's pretty good. Can't go over too much [inaudible 00:02:49]. So that's the Kamelon, I'm terrible with this aren't I, PowerBlade II. I've been Ben Curry and you've been watching ToolTalk. Thanks a lot.
