I know this thread will most likely get pulled. I am selling my rabone tape measure. It's the last thing I have from my AC days. As an DP I really do not need it anymore. It belongs in an AC kit.
In case you are unfamiliar with the rabone. It is the Focus Pullers tape measure. It is 33' long with a hand tooled leather and brass case. They have not been made in years and are increasingly hard to come by.

If you are interested check out my thread in the classified section. I posted a link to the ebay auction.

I've got one, it was one hell of a wrap gift from the DP.

What's the difference between a Rabone Chesterman AC tape measure and the surveyor's tape or the other tape measures Rabone Chesterman makes? They all seem to have cloth tape and are covered in leather.
