[access-uk] Re: Poor quality of equipment?

Steve & David,

I shall subscribe; as I am also into a bit of motor/ATC restoration!

Perhaps state side is the place to source a lot of equipment if possible?

Regards,

Mike

Mike, just a thought, did you know that there was a blind DIY type list? Think it's called the blind handyman list. Might be on the directory at www.whitestick.co.uk

The addy is though, blindhandyman-subscribe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Best wishes

Hi,

Yes, I tried resetting it and cleaning the tape etc.

A Braille one is not accurate enough. I am building a raised decking platform, about 22 by 33 feet, on which a log cabin style house shall be placed upon.

For use with a compound chop saw, a Braille tape would not be all that accurate.

Thanks for suggestion though.

Regards,

Mike

Mike,

Why don't you go for the Braille tape measures? They are far better and same quality as a regular one and even look just like a regular tape measure except that it has dots on it.

I whole heartedly agree with Andy about blind-specific items being too ugly and of inferior quality as most of the mainstream stuff. On top of that, we pay a higher price for all that. I too buy as much mainstream equipment as possible, i'll just make sure that it is perfectly usable for me. However for specific things like a tape measure for instance, I got the Braille one.

Take care,

Lyn & Twinny
