By Design Contracting | Concrete Tulsa Podcast | Episode 20
Hi there welcome back to by design contracting and concrete tulsa we’re here to talk today about units of measure and you’re in the united states. You know are units of measure that we deal with in concrete and contracting are usually with tape measure and on a 12th scale, 12th scale, which would be a 1 foot, 1 yard measurement, which is very common to deal with in measuring products in the concrete world. Sometimes when you’re dealing with architects and plans you’re dealing with the 10th scale, which is much more of a scale that is used with architects when you’re dealing with elevations when you get a set of plans and you have to relate to the measurements on land you’re using 10, so that will have every measurement of one foot divided into 10 instead of 12 divided into 10. If you don’t know you’re, the only was 1/10 scale it and really throw you off. But that’s not what I wanted to talk about today.
The measurement that I wanted to talk about today that you very very relational to oklahoma is really more. When you talk a mile when you get outside of the city and even in tulsa, everything is divided up in mile wines, but if you talk to any good farmer out in oklahoma and you’re lost and he’s going to give you directions as well. Now you hit on down south to the mile line to the 3rd mile line and make a left, sometimes they’ll just say:go down to the 3rd mile line and then go north and then you’re going to pass a tree and when you passed that tree you’re going to look for the 3rd driveway on the left. Now, that is how you get you directions when you’re here in oklahoma from a lot of people, so I’ve often thought how much would it cost to set up and pour a sidewalk from my line to my line or how exactly do you estimate giving somebody a sidewalk from the 3rd mile line south to the tree? Well, you would probably definitely have to measure that and one of the ways to measure that effectively with a wheel of a tape measure, so you don’t have to do it 25 or 30. Foot at a time you can just sit out of your wheel and you could measure out 100 feet are 1000 ft. You know by a five foot, wide sidewalk or wide street. You know down for that matter, but you know from mile line to my line would be a really nice paving contract and well that is in here in oklahoma, people talk about measurements, units of measurement down to the second mile line and the third mile lane. Well, if you want to do that, you go down to the four mile line, you turn and you know, there’s a post turtle sitting on the fence. Well, once I’m even supposed turtle, that’s enough!
That’s a whole other subject right there and what will cover post, turtles and another in another broadcast, but I can talk about post turtles today, cuz, that’s a long object ball and it’s all so for right. Now we’re just going to talk about my lines. So you go down to the 4th my line and you make a left and you go down to all you’ll see just a little barn barns on the left, scott the door off of it. So you know i, love cats in and out of the barn, but don’t fall in the bar, ditch if you’re going down there, but that’s not a problem. Cuz I don’t go to the bar, so I don’t have to worry about falling into the bar, ditch so anyhow eric concrete tulsa. We still do a lot of concrete work out in these whirl areas.
