Metal Tape Measure $1.50 per foot - One listed, but more available upon request.

Would you love to have some old metal measuring tape for one of your creations, but don't want to put out the money for a whole tape measure? Here is the perfect solution! I am offering sections of an old Lufkin metal tape measure in 1-foot increments. I will sell multiple cut 1-foot sections, or multiple 1-foot uncut sections - just let me know your preference. For more than 1 foot, please contact me for availability before ordering.

Wear and coloration will vary from section to section. These photos are showing representations of what you might expect, but not exactly what you will receive.

Please see my other listings for additional measuring tape options!

I have seen these tape measures used in many applications such as mixed-media jewelry, altered art, collage, assemblage, altered books etc.
