yes; I think that they are called measuring wheels.
And your might find them at lowes - I've seen them at fairly typical hardware stores before.

look on line at any police supply store. Try Galls. This is a link to their site. http://www.galls.com/gaweb.dll They are used to measure skid marks at accident scenes. I agree you may find it at a Home Depot or Lowes type store. People use them alot to measure their property etc.

I've got one. It's almost exactly 200 yards from the curve of my driveway to the road. Good range for spudding.
