Measure twice, cut once is the mantra of every good craftsman. A straight edge rules is absolutely crucial tool to have in your workshop. Being able to mark a perfectly straight line between two measured points is one of the most critical concepts of any kind of building trade be it carpentry, woodwork, masonry, etc.
This particular straight edge ruler is nice because a few factors. One, the numbering is very clear and large. Two, the finish allows you to mark on the ruler face with pencil and then clean the mark off easily. Three, the ruler is a good thickness. It’s plenty thick enough to draw a pencil line OR to use as a guide for a knife or razor edge. Four, it’s a really good length. At 36 inches, this can be used in most applications. Five, the end holes are large enough for the head of a drywall screw.
Empire is such a trusted name when it comes to precise measurement products. I don’t know who else I would trust more to make the perfect straight edge ruler.

This is a great product for the price. The graduations are easy to read, accurate compared to my other measuring equipment, and easy to store with the 2 holes.
This ruler is a little thinner and a little narrower than I would like it to be, but it works well for it's intended purpose.
Being aluminium it flexes but resists kinking or permanently bending like a steel rule would. For the price you definitely can't go wrong

This ruler is very accurate, easy to read, and isn't too wide. It's a little flimsy but works just fine in most applications and seems durable enough
