Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jswobe A good sized ruler with multiple scales...good for the shop
Sometimes my tape measure is not the right measuring tool - particularly for certain woodworking projects. A ruler works better. This 18-inch ruler is a good size for projects that require precision. I have found that 12-inch rulers are generally not long enough and anything plastic will either bend or get nicked and then quickly become useless. This ruler solves the problem.
1. The markings do not start at the end, so you are sure that the first inch of the ruler is a full inch, and not worn down or cut just a hair short
2. There are two sets of scales, plus metric: 1/16" on one side, 1/32" on the other and MM on both sides
3. Stiff, but still flexible
The only thing to note is that this ruler is stiff, not rigid. It is slightly flexible even though it is made of stainless steel.

It's a ruler! I like the metal ruler because with the wood rulers the edge pulls out or tweaks. I like to use it as a straight edge as well as a measuring tool. Sometimes 12 inches isn't enough!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bitman Dual scales. Markings don't start at edge.
HD Store SKU # 504309. The ruler markings start about 1/8" from the left end. On the front the top scale is in 32nds and the bottom scale is in millimeters that has stamped 10, 20, ... 450. On the back the top scale is in 16ths and the bottom is in millimeters. The only thing I'm worried about is if this "stainless" steel rulers can corrode. I'm using it for photo mats. It is made in India and inspected in the USA.

I lost my original metal ruler and it was time for a replacement. I ordered this ruler and was happy it arrived with a vinyl sleeve that I was able to mount to the side of my work table. Now I have a handy place to keep it so I don't lose it again. The ruler is a good quality and the numbers and measurements are all etched into the metal. I expect this to be the last ruler that I will need to purchas (as long as I don't lose it again.) I would recommend this as a good everyday item.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by joelav22 High quality, straight and accurate
This is a great rule. It's pretty stiff and sufficiently thick to run a pencil or knife against. The etching is very strong and easy to read. Being stainless, I don't have to worry about rust leaving it in my garage which is not climate controlled.
The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is because the graduations (measurements) do not start at the edges of the rule. This makes getting inside measurements a little tricky.
For the price, you definitely cannot go wrong.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SRSAllenTX Light weight and sturdy
I am using this product as a straight edge as well as a measurement tool. I was looking for a ruler about 1 1/2 inches wide. This one is only an inch, but is working well, I was also afraid this item might be too light, but it works great and is much easier to work with and transport than the yard stick I was using before. Because the product is metal, I don't have to worry about shaving off parts of the wooden yardstick with my rotary cutter. I would highly recommend this product. It has made my task much easier.
