Just got the 96" after waiting for in store delivery. It looked crooked against the granite edges in my kitchen, and rocked when placed edge down. To make sure, I drew a line along the whole thing and then reversed the ruler. Then starting from the original starting point, I lined the ruler up along the original line closest to me and drew along the ruler again. Line stayed single until the halfway point and then diverged (see picture). Its a pretty orange paperweight as far as I am concerned. Now I have to waste another hour taking it back. Avoid (at least avoid one that got mailed and sat on!)

does this ruler measure in inches and metric?

No.... Inch scale only on each edge with graduations every 1/16 inch.

The reality of this giant ruler.
I too bought a pair of these simultaneously. Received in perfect condition, clean, with not a scratch in the anodizing. No manufacturing residues. The makings are laser engraved, not printed. There is no evidence of curvature when placed edge-to-edge, opposed, nor when placed on edge against a reference surface ground flat. See photo of two of them placed edge-to-edge, opposed (at 48" location). Checking with my reference scale I find that the engraved markings are not absolutely in agreement across the long 96" rule, but are within less than 1/32 of an inch throughout. The photo posted by others of two units edge-to-edge, opposed, demonstrates twice the actual measuring error. One reversed against the other makes the error additive. Aligning my reference scale at the 1 inch mark exactly, I find about 1/64" error at the 48" mark and about 1/32" error at the 96" mark. For me, that's remarkable. This is, after all, a giant 8 foot ruler. To buy this and complain that it does not have the metric quality of a certified, traceable reference tool might be harsh. Each of these is only $45 and they are excellent sturdy items. If you want a traceable reference tool you shouldn't be expecting to spend $45. Exceptional value to me. My little 6 inch, Starrett, machinist scale with traceable certification cost more than this does.

INNOVATIVE DESIGN; EASY GRIP; NO-SLIP— The Swanson 24 in. Aluminum Non-Marring Straight Edge Anodized Laser-Etched Scale is superior to all of the other straight edges that I have used previously. The best feature of its innovative design is the raised side which makes it easy to hold, pick up, and move. A second useful feature is the no-slip backing on the bottom that makes it easier to use for cutting. It can be clamped to use with a circular saw to get a perfect cut. The edge is raised enough that the saw does not slip. The white scale on the orange background is easy to read for getting accurate measurements. It has a hole on one end to make it easy to hang on a wall. The orange color makes it difficult to lose. It is made in China.

I wanted to add a straight edge to my collection of marking tools in my wood whop. I have a lot of squares but didn't have and straight edges and this one is unique because it is L shaped which allows you to hold it easier. The bottom has an anti slip material so it helps prevent it from moving if you bump it. All of the markings are easy to read and it comes with a lifetime warranty.

Where has this straight-edge been all my life? I so wish I'd of owned this while my sister and I were putting siding on my house! What an easy to use product it is. It is even designed in such a way as to make it easier to pick up than my old flat "ruler" style straight edge. Also love the rubber back that keeps it from moving around so easily. It is lightweight, very easy to read the measurements.

Swanson 24 in. Aluminum Non-Marring Straight Edge Anodized Laser-Etched Scale is accurate and also provides excellent protection when cutting with a sharp blade. This is because it is 'L' shaped which provides protection from blade slips and nicks. I already have a longer version that I've been using for several years. The long length is is a little awkward sometimes for small projects so the shorter version is handier in those instances. This is a straight edge that I go to first, especially when cutting with a razor knife. I've cut a lot of vinyl flooring squares and planks where you really have to dig in to get the cut or score it. The two foot version is right for this work. The straight edge stays put on the material because it has a rubber like material on the underside which doesn't slip or shift. It's handy to have around for this work..

Online pictures don't do full justice to this excellent straight edge - see my picture instead. The tool isn't flat, but one edge is angled upward. This gives 2 big advantages. It's very easy to move the ruler over a surface - in other words no lifting it with your fingernail. Also if you use it for hand cutting it gives you a place to rest your fingers for more accurate cuts. Maybe others are aware of this design, but for me it was a revelation - I'll never use another style. The inch marks are very clear and easy to read and the bright color makes it hard to lose in a pile of debris. It also feel built to last and the bottom has a non-slip surface that holds it steady without pressure. The only negative is that the ends are not finished cleanly and may cause cuts. Otherwise this would be 5 stars.

Savage 36in. Straight Edge The Savage 36 inch Aluminum Straight Edge is a great addition to my wood shop. I used the straight edge to mount a shelf support on the inside of a cabinet I was making. The straight Edge has bright white on Orange measurements that make it very easy to read. The measurements are on both sides of the straight edge. It is made out of aluminum, making it very light. There is a hole in one end, making it possible to hang the straight edge on the wall with my other long rulers and levels. The only thing I would add to this straight edge is measurement markings on the high edge. This would make it possible to mark a board’s edge while laying the lower flat part of the straight edge behind the board (As in the picture I included). Other than that I would say I like the straight edge and I would recommend it as a welcome addition to any shop.

Do not buy this! We've got two - both are the same - curves about 1/2" in center; also the scale is not consistent - matches the ends and off in the middle. Both rulers are absolutely identical in defects - so it's not an accident, but a rule:) The color and appearance is good though - can have it as decoration. Planning to return.

very instensely strong and non slip
I can't imagine the force it would take to attempt to bend this straight edge. It is very heavy duty and reinforced at the point of changing angle. It has a very comfortable hand grip throughout, and on some surfaces it will stay in place by itself while drawing a line. If you simply have it laying on a smooth surface and bump it, the straight edge may very well stay in place. You'd probably never use a flat conventional straight edge again after trying this.
