Tighten the screw on the wheel just a bit. You'll have to push a little firmer and the wheel won't move at every little thing.

We use the VanderKooi estimating program. It is an older version (still DOS). We have the newer version, but haven't used it yet. It is called CLIP Bid Right. The design programs will do take offs, but you have to input it while you do the design.

I should mention that we are almost 100% design/build.

Kris I looked at a program that, as you did the take off it would give you the (programed right) the quantity of material needed say for a brick patio, how many sq ft of brick(along with waste) stone, sand, edging, and nails. Check it out here
Download the demo on the digitizer interface. The software is availble for a free 30 day download.

The demo is a movie on how it works and the software is fully functionable for 30 days.

The scale master has made and saved allot of money for me. It will save greatly in estimating time. I love mine, would not do an estimate with out it!!
