To measure elevations beyond the single set-up range of the ZIPLEVEL, use the powerful built-in "Carry" function to leap-frog the base unit and measurement module to measure any elevation over unlimited distances. Instructions on how to use the "Carry" function are described on pages 21 & 22 of the ZIPLEVEL User Guide.

You have acouple of options

You can buy a measuring tool that doesn't have a size limit or has a very high size limit, you can check around to find one that will suit your needs.

You can measure the till the end of you measuring tool, mark the spot where it ends, and make another measuerment from that spot.

Another option is to take a long piece of string, and run it between the two points you want to measure, Cut the rope exactly between the two points, and later you can measure it, section by section, this is a lot of work!

I'm sure that these aren't all the possible methods, I think that folks around here might add a few.

Good luck

A friend gave me an optical tape measure ranging 600, I've never used one and don't understand quite what it's for or how. Not sure if it's for surveying or how to even go about using it.

It's for general purpose measurements. Usually, point it at a wall and press the measure button. It will indicate the distance from where you're standing to the wall. With a little practice, you'll be an expert and won't need to use a tape measure for the longer distances.

Can i use a ruler to measure gap on spark plug

If your can see the difference between .020 (20 thousands) and .025 (25 thousandths) of an inch than you may not need a gap tool.
A $3 spark plug gap tool is a must, you can get it at any auto parts store. Also if your spark plug is stuck in the socket, get a new socket and spark plug, but if you need it now take the socket wrench off the socket and place the socket in a vice. Then with the biggest screwdriver that will fit in the socket wrench hole, place the screw driver tip on the top of the spark plug stuck in the socket and hit the other end of the screw driver with a hammer until the spark plug comes out...... get a bigger hammer. note: the old spark plug may not survive.

The ads for this device state that it uses the Pythagorean theorem to figure the distance of a 3rd side, if you can measure the other 2 sides. I How do I use this feature?

1) There is a big difference between Bosch promo manual and Bosch operation manual:

2) Online promo manual says: Combined Indirect/Pythagoras for measuring total height from a distance

3) Online operation manual shows no instructions for Pythagoras measuring.
And shows no button for displaying E value or height.

4) Operation manual shows:
Length Measurement** and tells you to measure the height while promo says tool will calculate height E
Area Measurement*** shows rectangle only and not triangle
Volume Measurement
Area or Volume
Rounding of Large Calculations
Continuous Measurement (Tracking)

5) I would contact Bosch directly:

6) Until you get satisfaction from Bosch, the Bosch device gives precise menasurements that can be entered into a Pythagorean calculator online, which defeats the purpose of a jobsite tool: But you can access online calculator via cell phone while on jobsite.

Craftmans Laser Measuring Tool Model 48252 gives a "Err" message when trying to read a distance

The 48252 is kind of "finniky". Angle has to be good, surface not irregular or like a cusion, can't be anything in the way. There's a troubleshooting section in the manual - I have attached it in case your's got misplaced. Just enter the Captcha, and the link will appear at the top right of the large pannel in the next screen.

Hope this answer helps out, if it does please rate this a four-thumbs up. Thank you.

Tape broke on W928 tape measure

I looked around and can't find a replacement tape for this 12 footer. The tape measure itself seems to be no longer available.
I suggest recycling it and buying a new tape measure.
