This item is just as described: A big, long, 96" straight edge with no frills. Don't expect it to be rigid while you're carrying it, but it works just fine when you lay it down to mark wood for cutting or if you want to clamp it in place to use as a saw guide to cut 4x8 sheets of plywood. It's also good for checking floor levelness prior to laying down tile.

This is the second one of the straight edges that I have purchased. I am using it to lay out long straight lines and cuts while doing a homebuilt aircraft project. I use it for everything from laying out cuts for building wooden workbenches, to guiding an Olfa knife while cutting sheet aluminum, to establishing straight lines while assembling parts. A very versatile tool. Good quality and price is really reasonable. I know most people aren't building a plane in their garage, but would highly recommend for carpentry, home projects and anywhere you need to lay out a long, straight edge or line.

This is as you would think an 8' ruler. It is 2" wide by 1/8" thick. I bought it to use as a straight edge to guide circular saws and routers. I have yet to actually use it (I will update once I have used it) but the edge is straight and the ruler is flat so there is no reason why it should not work.

The item was damaged slightly in shipment (1. slight ding on one corner and 2. the ruler would like to be a little bowed - not along the important straight edge) but considering how long this ruler is I am very happy with the shipping.

NOTE: The product description states "5 per pack" I had my finger crossed to receive 5, but as you probably would guess you only receive one 8' straight edge.

UPDATE: The straight edge is really to flexible and to low a profile to use as a guide. I routed part of the edge in my attempts to use it. In future attempts with more clamps I noticed an obvious wave in the straight edge due to the pressures of the clamps. I am going to try to epoxy it to a wood straight to give it more rigidity and thickness.

i need this a few times a year and could not see myself spending more money but if this was about a 32nd inch thicker it would be very nice. i would lover to have one that is a 1/4 inch thick but the bucks start to get more serious.

So we searched our local hardware stores before ordering this on-line, and were unable to find a good basic one like this in the store. All 8' straight edges were over $100 in the store. This is just as promised, and great for the price!
