Stanley 33-725 25-Foot FatMax Tape Measure

Buy This Product Below

Product Description

The Stanley 25-Foot FatMax Tape Measure is reinforced on the first six feet with BladeArmor coating for maximum durability. A Mylar polyester film extends the life of the entire blade. This tape rule comes with a cushion grip built into the case for a non-slip grip and impact resistance. A top forward blade lock design makes it easier to lock and unlock the blade while a heavy, heat-treated spring provides long life and smooth blade recoil.

The tape blade measures 25-feet-by-1-1/4-inch with a 11-foot tape standout. To simplify framing jobs, the bright yellow, easy-to-read blade has 16-inch and 19.2-inch stud center markings. It comes with Stanley's limited lifetime warranty.
About Stanley FatMax Tape Systems and BladeArmor Coating
The FatMax family of products has established itself as one of Stanley's most extensive and innovative product families in the company's 161-year history. The FatMax line of hand tools features core tools essential for the pro or expert enthusiast who desire high quality, durable tools. BladeArmor coating is a patented industrial thermoplastic coating, the very same material that has been used to strengthen and protect aircraft parts, such as the rotor blades on the Sikorsky Black Hawk Helicopter. Simply put, it helps aircraft survive war zones, and it also helps tape blades survive construction zones. Applying BladeArmor coating to tape blades reduces both tape breakage and tape returns, enabling it to conquer the toughest testing ground of all -- the job site!
 
Technical Details
  • Tape rule with first 6 feet reinforced with BladeArmor coating for maximum durability
  • 11 foot tape standout; 16-inch and 19.2-inch stud center markings simplify framing jobs

Customer Review
The last thing I needed was another tape measure, but I'm tired of 1" tapes flopping and sagging when making long measurements by myself. This fat guy doesn't sag or flop very often. Just wish that Stanley would make a 30' or 35' version. Then I'd buy another tape that I really didn't need!

I've been a big fan of these folding utility knives for as long as they've been around. This one is absolutely amazing. Truly "Buck knife" quality in a folding utility knife.

Customer Review
I've been a big fan of these folding utility knives for as long as they've been around. This one is absolutely amazing. Truly "Buck knife" quality in a folding utility knife.
You can't even begin to see the quality in the picture - I was really surprised when I got it in the mail. Heavy aluminum frame with nice polished wood accent.
Everyone should have one of these!

Customer Review
I love this level. It is very good quality, and gives you a true level, unlike a lot of other cheap models out there.
I bought mine at a box store unfortunately more than 5 years ago, and the level has held up to many days of when I was a cabinet installer. It fits very easily inside cabinets and small places. The top is magnetic which is nice to place some screws on top so they don't fall to the ground. I have never had any problems with this level, and like I said, I used it everyday for about 3 years abusing it everyday installing cabinets. Also used it remodeling my house and various side projects.
Highly recommended to everybody, this will stand up to the toughest projects.

Customer Review
I have used this gun for a few jobs now. Other reviewers are right that the light weight of the gun makes a difference, and that the fiberglass body prevents you from marking up other surfaces during use. On the one hand, I was surprised that the handle flexed when I was laying down very viscous caulking, although despite this flexing in the handle, the gun seems like it will last some time. I have also found that with more viscous caulk, the gun does not leak when I lay it down between runs of caulk, although with the LIGHTER caulk, there is SOME leaking - not, however, as much as with the other guns I have used in the past.

I rate this gun four stars because the black, built-in seal-breaking pin is virtually useless. Its attachment to the gun is poorly designed, and it will inevitably get lost. It might seem like a small detail, but there are times - like when you're up on a roof without another alternative for breaking the seal in the caulk - you really want a good, built-in pin. As a work-around, just tape on a piece of metal wire or something comparable.

Despite this flaw, I am impressed enough with the weight, precision of the piston control, and general ease of use to plan on buying another one for a friend, who is starting home renovations soon.
