Hope you work in metric
I guess I should have looked at the picture more closely. These rulers have metric on the top edge and imperial on the bottom edge. I always seem to measure using the "top" edge, so these don't work well for me. I also bought the 40" one and it's made of the same thin metal and won't sit flat.
Good workshop aid for the price. It doesn't flex but it isn't too thick either. The rounded end makes it easy to put into the narrow slot type pockets of my shop apron. The graduations are accurate when compared to caliper readings and the engraving appears good. The graduations should last a long time. The only negative is the way it reflects the fluorescent light in my workshop. Depending on where I stand relative to the light fixture it can be hard to read the smaller (1/16") graduations. However, I have never had a problem with incandescent lighting or daylight.
This ruler is good, could be better
This ruler works well for what it's meant to do. I bought one of these and one woodcraft rule because I couldn't decide between the 2. I like the woodcraft one better because it is more rigid and measures from end to end right up to the edge. The hole in the end might be convenient for larger rulers but one of this side it's just not necessary.
Good pocket Piece
It works great for a pocket tool. I would like it better if it were a tad thicker to resist bending. It is accurate and easy to carry.
Well made and handy - I bough several
I even carry one in my notepad for drafting purposes.
Good product, I would buy again. Not too thin, but does flex. If it were thicker, I would have given 5 stars, but really not an issue. Accurate and easy to use and read. Now a standard in my workshop that I keep at arms length at all times. No complaints.
Excellent 6" ruler
Excellent 6" ruler. I use it often.
