If you're using a laser, note the result at the distance you need it and then spin the laser 180 degrees and check to see if results match.

Use a second measuring tool and compare the results, or you can measure a known size or length (floor tiles for example)and check the reading you get.

How do you ensure the vernier scale is accurate on a pi tape?

Hello. Ensuring accuracy with a new unit should not be necessary. All Pi-Tape pruducts are:

"delivered with a Calibration Report traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology and all calibrations are performed in accordance with ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994, ISO/IEC 17025, ISO 10012-1, MIL-STD 45662A and 10CFR, part 21."

If the unit is second hand, the only real way to ensure accuracy is to verify the unit with a second calibrated vernier, or actually have it calibrated. Pi-Tape has a calibration lab. The link to contact them is:

Lots of other good info here as well. Hope this helps out.

When I put it on it says ''L''

I have a suspiciion that your display is faulty The error should be E not L There have been quite a few problems with this unit and many were returned for replacement. Distributed mainly via Amazon from what I can find. Changing battries for some resulted in total anhialation of the unit. Others found erratic readings of steak 110 on first test and 80 on the second insertion 2 mins later. All in all I think this is a cheap and faulty product from my research but for $12 I guess I am expecting a lot to want accuracy and reliability.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Checking level accuracy

You do not need to replace it. If it does not read the same when you reverse it, on one end there are a nut over and under the tube and plug assembly. Adjust those up or down until it reads the same.

Measuring a Building

This is a pretty odd question, i think you don't need to measure it, you can check the building plans.

If you insist on measuring it I think your best option is a Laser Measuring Device, they are the easist to use.
