      Q:Could I use this as a level. To find humps in subfloor?

      A:  Yes. I used it on its edge to level tiles on a countertop.

      A:  No I wouldn’t it flexes a little up and down

      by|May 21, 2020

        A:  Hi Duncan, Great question - yes, you can certainly use this 96 inch straight edge to check your subfloor. The stiffness to this straightedge is great for that - even better if you put it on its side; that will clearly show you any humps or peaks/valleys in the subfloor. Hope that helps!

          A:  No because its likely defective. Mine had a bow in the middle. Unless you are looking to shed water from the middle of the room this won't cut it!

          Answer This Question

          A:  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!)

            A:  Based on the answer to my question I ordered another, and it was also bowed, concave at the thin edge and convex at the thick edge. Most of the 47 reviews listed are for shorter length straight edges, not the 96 inch. IMO Swanson has a manufacturing problem with this item.

              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.

                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.

                  Definitely a well built straight age, very sturdy, one raised edge as a finger or thumb guide. I would definitely recommend this tool.

                  Love this ruler. It’s a nicely machined tool. Feels solid. If I had to nitpick, I’d like to include feet in its markings, but only has inches. No biggie though. Make sure you have a place to hang it from!
