Woodpeckers Precision Woodworking Ruler, Metric 1200mm
What makes Woodpeckers new Metric Woodworking Ruler better than your average yardstick?
Firstly, it's much more accurate, with precise laser engraved markings.
Secondly, it's straighter and heavier.
Third, it sits flat because of a recess down the centre of the bottom surface.
Fourth, it has both a standard and a centre scale.
Fifth, the markings are engraved on a 30 degree bevel for easy alignment to pencil marks.
And finally, it looks nicer!
When you look at all the different rulers being sold in retail stores, they're all pretty much intended for onsite job or general purpose use without any thought on how to make them better for those of us who build furniture and cabinets.
Tape measures are great if you're building a shed. They're not dependably accurate enough for finished furniture parts. Tape measures also don't make good straight edges to draw lines with. For that we usually look for the nearest scrap piece of lumber that we hope is straight.
Compare that to the application specific engineering that went into these new Woodworking Rulers and you'll begin to appreciate the advantages. There is even a finger groove down the centre to help steer the rule in to place.
This Woodworking Ruler features a 0-1257mm scale, 1mm graduations and a 628mm-0-628mm centre scale. The actual length is 1257mm.
Like all Woodpecker woodworking tools, this ruler is made in the U.S.A. in Woodpeckers own machine shop.
