By G. Conner TOP 500 REVIEWER on May 5, 2009
I loved my old Lufkin "red end" folding rule and used it for decades, until it was stolen along with all my other tools. When I saw this, I got it immediately. It has all the advantages of a folding rule, plus it's plastic so it stays straight and is impervious to moisture. It lays out flat or stands on edge without help. The slide works neatly and stays in place. When new, it seems a little stiff, which is as it should be.

If you are not familiar with folding rules, get one. They do many measuring and layout jobs much faster and more easily than tape measures.

You can use it to:
quickly check inside or outside diagonals for squareness,
take rough angles for many cuts,
"measure, without measuring" by using the extension slide as a "story pole,"
pull actual dimensions directly from scale drawings, again as with a story pole,
get accurate inside length measurements for interior partitions, drawers, closets, raceways, etc.
instantly "Capture and hold" accurate measurements for repeated cuts, or variations

This is a versatile tool that is now better because it wont twist or warp with the weather.
It's a good idea made better.... Highly recommended!

I remember when carpenters rulers were made of wood,they were very durable,and I loved the sound when they closed.
This one,well it's a plastic sterile sound when closing.
BUT it does the job measuring,it seems to be a quality made product.
I'll buy more if I lose or misplace this one.
Or one for each toolbox !

This reminds me of what my father used when he was building our home in the 50's. I like that it doesn't curl up and flop around like the metal roll up measuring devices. With them you need someone to hold the other end, or you just cannot get the end to hold still to get an accurate measure. This ruler holds still and cooperates.

This item sounded good as it is made of a plastic/resin so it should have advantages over a wooden ruler, such as warping and easier to clean. However the joints are also plastic rivets as well and this broke within a few weeks of very light use. I am a woodworker and do not abuse my tools so I can;t imagine how quickly it would break if I were on a construction site. I would never buy another one.

Product is essentially as described. Our use is primarily as a straight edge and these rulers have only been in service a few weeks. So far so good.

I really like old school and this ruler certainly fits my expectations! Besides all carpenter's pants have a pocket these rulers fit into perfectly!
