Many years ago I worked with a carpenter who used a one metre folding rule, but tended to use imperial measurements so if he measured something longer than a metre he would use the full length of the rule then add on the remainder in inches! So if he asked you to cut a length of wood you were given a measurement of 1m 16 1/2ins.! As I used a measuring tape I had to mark one metre then add the inches. Got used to it in the end.
