Another tool what’s it for

Recommended Posts

It goes onto the end of a 50’ or 100’ steel tape measure.  That piece makes the normal loop end into a catch to hang onto the edge of what you are measuring.

Thanks google....

My guess is that was an accessory you could add to the tape for a better hook on the end?  I’ve seen several old lufkin tapes and even have one but have never seen that hook.

Used Lufkin tape 50 years ago to tally drill stem. For conversation sake they were in 1.2 inches / 10 units per foot with smaller unit so a stem may be 31.23 ft . I have a damaged one somewhere around here .
