By A Customer on August 24, 2000
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.

It's a nice machinists ruler. A little thinner than my father's old one, of course it did say "flex" precision. I have to use my bifocals to read the tiny little 32nds and 64th inch markings But that's the sort of measurements necessary in precision work; I needed this to set up the string heights on my guitars.

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.

Nice little measuring tool that allows me to do quick non-precise measurements on rough field equipment. Graduations are hard to see, but that's where the reading glasses come in. Has a fractional-decimal scale on reverse side. Good price for a handy pocket measuring tool.

I lost my pocket rule that I have carried in the classroom and shop for over thirty years. This is the closest I could find to the one I lost. It has 32nds and 64ths marked. The pocket clip also works as a depth gauge. I also liked that it was made in the USA. The markings are etched on, not just painted. I anticipate I'll be using this for a long time. Nice steel ruler Six inches long
