This vintage tape measure is about 3 3/8 inches wide. At the edge it is 5/8 inch thick. It is thicker in the middle. The tape pulls out to 50 feet and 6 inches. The last six inches look stretched and ripply but it is still strong. It has some dirt spots on the tape and you can see by the outside case that is was well used but overall it is still in great condition. It winds up easily.
