Tape measures are something that tradesmen use every day on site. But, how many of us know how they’re made? Chances are, not a lot. So, we decided to visit a factory and take a look at exactly how one is made and share it with the rest of you lot.
We found out some great stats too. For instance, at this factory, enough tape measures have been made to go to the moon… and back again! Specifically, 11,650 miles of tape measure is produced each and every year.
However, it’s not as simple as just putting a tape measure together. In fact, there are quite a few steps involved in making one of these. It even involves a combination of both machinery and a people based workforce.
Take a look at the footage we captured of tapes being made here. Trust me, it’s a lot more interesting than the description!

And stay tuned because coming up, we’ve got an even better ‘hot it’s made video’… turning a petrol can into a mini bar!
So what do you think of this? Do you want to see more of these ‘how it’s made’ videos? Have you got an idea as to what we could look at next? Let us know in the comments below.
