6 in. Stiff Ruler is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a ruler. It's sturdy and accurate and good for cutting straight edges. That's all I can ask for.
Date published: 2011-11-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, Quality Ruler built to last Metal ruler features measurements in 1/20 & 1/32 up to 6". High quality.
Date published: 2013-05-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Ideal for what we are using to measure them for. Robust and long lasting.
Date published: 2012-09-25
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless Why don't the markings go right to the edge? It's a metal ruler so it will probably take 50 years to wear significantly on the edges so that would be a problem. This severely limits this products range of uses. Who designs this junk?
Date published: 2015-10-01
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Well made, but useless in the cabinet shop. I ordered this ruler because I thought it would be idea for setting blade height on my table saw and accurately adjusting depth of cut on my router. Unfortunately, since the end of the ruler does not coincide with zero, the ruler is useless for this purpose. The markings on this ruler are etched rather than painted, so it will be durable, but since I cannot set the end of the ruler on the saw table or router table and then raise the blade to a desired measurement, the ruler is of no value to me.
