This rule is stored in my pocket whenever I'm doing any wood or metal work. I have owned it for over 15 years and to this day, use it so religiously that a holster would not be uncalled for. It is exceptionally easy to read with astounding precision and includes a handy decimal equivalent chart on the back. I lost the clip long ago and don't miss it - not very pocket friendly. Although very flexible, it's thin edge makes it extremely useful as a straightedge when aligning components. When woodworking, it serves as a light duty scraper for fine-tuning joinery or cleaning glue joints. I have a beautiful 12" Mitutoyo rigid rule that I also like, but it's this that goes everywhere with me. I am so dependant on this rule that I sought out replacement availability in anticipation of the tragic day in which I finally misplace it. When I found it here on Amazon, I was shocked at its ridiculously low price and simply had to voice my praise.

I bought this precision ruler for guitar setup, and for that purpose it is excellent. It's also much cheaper than precision rulers available from guitar supply vendors such as Stewart McDonald, etc. There's no need to spend big bucks to obtain an excellent precision ruler as this product attests to.

This rule is one of the first tools that I pull out anytime I work on a project requiring short, exact measuring. I use it as a depth gauge for setting up router dados and rabbets with the aid of the pocket clip. I also use it as a height gauge for my table saw blade, or to measure the bit adjustment on my router table. It is great for the measurement of exact board widths in the setup of the fence on my table saw. I've used it to mark cuts on ceramic tiles, and so many other uses that I don't have time to itemize. Because it is so thin and featherweight, it is much easier to use than my Combination Square for short measurements. It sure beats a tape measure for accuracy by a long shot. I also bought a second one so it would be handy just in case I misplaced one.

Not a bad thing to say about this product. Its an easy to use, accurate, inexpensive product for measuring to 1/64.
I use it to do set-up work on guitars and to calibrate power tools. Once in a while, you'll find these on sale for $2.50. At that price, I recommend buying 4-5. They are easy to misplace, especially for a dolt like me.

This rule is nowhere near the quality of the Starrett rule I recently purchased from Amazon. The only reason I bought it was to obtain a rule with the sliding Tee, not made by Starrett, so I could easily compare similar measurements. The slide does not fit well and as a result, I can not obtain reliable comparisons. The Tee slides or wiggles around, not remaining square to the rule. It's a poor product and not worth the time or effort to return it to Amazon.

This is not a good tool. The idea is fine but the execution is lousy. The ruler was cut on an angle so you couldn't actually move the slide all the way from one end to the other and the slide grips the edge of the ruler so loosely that when it was able to slide it wobbled back and forth an absurd amount. I had to file one side down to make it useful at all. Then I had to re-bend the slide's grips so it wouldn't flop back and forth. That is poor. Especially since I found an old one that slides smoothly and tightly after several decades use. General Tool simply doesn't care about the quality of it's small tools anymore.

I work in a metal machine shop. These lil guys are probably the most handiest to use and work with for small stuff. The 4R graduations every machinist probably has memorized over time. I bought several of these and handed them out to the guys (mainly so they stop coming to me to bogart mine AND NOT RETURN IT!) I'm sure there's a few of you out there who has been in a similar situation, or find yours some how magically disappeared from your work area or desk. Good item.
