The Rigid Diameter Tape Rule
Abstract:This article describes the graduation and use of a rigid tape rule for measuring tree diameters. Application of the principle to tree calipers, the carpenter's square, and stick rules is also discussed. The author assumes that a rigid tape rule can be obtained in manufactured form, and advocates a specially designed rule of slightly heavier construction than that in rules now in general use.
