The Keson Company was formed in 1968, by Roy Nosek. Evelyn Nosek, Roy’s wife, thought that it would be appropriate to name the company Keson as it is the family name spelled backwards. The name stuck and Keson has been going strong for decades and to this day is still a family owned business. They make some of the best distance measuring wheels on the market today.

Laser Measuring Tools were once only used for people making quick measurements for estimations of things like the size of a room, or the length of a house, where accuracy was needed but was not paramount. It was for a quick estimated measurement of a distance. That was then. Todays laser measuring tools are so advanced they are more times an increase of accuracy over a traditional measuring tape due to no sag in the tape, and theres no need to measure multiple lengths of a tape when measuring a distance that's longer than the tape. Less room for error and greater accuracy with less time spent all add up to it's a no-brainer. Then you add in the features that most of the higher end laser measuring tapes offer , such as measuring area, measuring distances that you cannot reach (think of the height of a window on the third floor of a building). The features you need to pay attention to when looking to buy a laser measuring tool would be the range or distance it can measure, and its ability to store measurements for later use. Some laser measuring tools have a way to transmit measurement data to your iPhone or Android via Bluetooth connectivity. Some of the top names in the line of laser measuring tapes are Bosch, and Leica as they produce some of the most useful features, along with the most rugged cases and longer lasting electronics. If you've been on the fence now for some time trying to decide whether or not to get one, the time has come to get one today. The features and accuracy are now at the point that these are serious tools being used by serious professionals day in and day out.

Many excavation companies use machine control grading systems and laser detectors to help them get on grade and stay on grade when grading parking lots, concrete pads, foundations, septic drainage systems, trenches and more. Most attach to heavy equipment such as a front-end loaders, mini excavators, dozers via magnetic or mounting brackets that we also sell. The laser detectors used with machine control have larger than usual detection sensors and some can be detected from 360 degrees. Set your laser level up on a tripod away from your work, attach a machine control detector and get your measurement worked out for the desired elevation and go to work saving time and money.

Safco Vamp LED Desk Lamp. When we got a sample of this LED Desk Lamp here for the office first thoughts were that it was very plain and simple looking. But then upon closer inspection we realized this was not your ordinary desk lamp. It's certainly not a cheap desk lamp, its a well-made lamp that's very bright, and very useful. Its arms are adjustable and you can rotate the lamp head and aim the light almost anywhere it's needed. The base is heavy and the lamp stays firmly planted even if you extend the arms way out further than you think you should. The base has a USB charging port for your iPhone or Android device, which works great at the office where you can work and charge your phone at the same time. The controls on the base feature a 7-step touch dimming function that includes warm or cool light settings which rounds this desk lamp as an EngineerSupply favorite.

Engineering and Surveying Field Books are hardback books that are made with stiff paper pages, and quality sewn backing and bindings. The pages are filled with grid patterns so that proper notes and drawings can be recorded while in the field and later transferred in the office. Some notes have to be "reduced" such as measurements taken by a Theodolite. Many times land surveyors will carry a field book to record notes that are not generally taken or recorded by a Total Station or Data Collector. Field books are widely used in the Mining Industry as well. We carry Engineering Log Books, Land Surveyors Field Books, and Mining Transit Field Books.

Seymour Paints makes Utility Marking Paint. For those that know what utility marking paint is, then you know this is one of the best brands of marking paint available. For those that don't know what utility marking paint is, it's like a regular can of spray paint yet it's made with a special nozzle so that it sprays while held upside down while marking manhole tops, sewer lines, valve boxes, water lines, electrical lines and more. It's also great for construction stake-out where surveyors mark where structures such as curb and gutter, manholes, building footers and corners, will be built. Marking paint is also made so that it dries super fast and washes off after a few months in the weather. It is not as permanent as regular spray paint. Sold by the case, it's best to stock up and maybe buy more than you think you'll need since once you find a use for it, you'll use it often.

Upside Down Inverted Marking Paint is one of the most useful things a utility worker can use while he/she locates and marks underground utilities. Contractors also use it for construction layout and things like location of driveways prior to install and so on. Regular spray paint doesn't work since it clogs when held upside down while spraying. Inverted spray paint has a nozzle thats intended to spray while held upside down and not clog.
