    Anyone use and/or have a recommended measuring wheel. I was looking at buying one of these:

    After breaking three of the plastic ones, I bought a metal one.

    They can be really useful for get accurate measurements for big distances. I use a laser tape measure for smaller areas.

    I bought one at home depot, I think it's alluminum sliding handle. I have no complaints. you just have to take care of it and not throw it in the back of the truck.

    Yup same here, just three days ago $27 bucks the one with the prison orange color:rolleyes: Works good on pavement the other had a smaller four inch wide wheel on it. Those do not go good on grass and hard surface.

    I bought one made by Stanley at Home Depot. It's a good quality wheel, I think it was around 40 or 50 bucks but it's pretty well-made. I'll see if I can find a link for it.
