I've considered one for measuring in people's houses. Last week I had to measure for over 200 ft of crown in someone's house and something like that could be handy instead of pulling out the tape forty times over and over, especially in a house with lot of jogs and turns in the walls, not to mention hovering my tape over furniture and nick-nacks and possibly having it collapse on top with that horrible crashing sound. I never measure for trim ie: baseboard, crown to the inch, I always round up to the nearest foot so accuracy is not necessary. I couldn't see wanting one for woodworkig in the shop, I'll keep my steel rulers and flat 16' tape for that.
