What makes our new woodworking rule better than your average scale? First of all, it is much more accurate with precise laser-etched markings. Secondly, it is straighter and heavier. Third, it lies flat because of a depression in the middle of the lower surface. Fourth, it has both a standard scale and an average scale. Fifth, the marks are engraved on a 30-degree chamfer for easy alignment with the pencil marks. And finally, it is more beautiful.

Both edges are beveled so that the scale is right next to your work, simplifying marking and minimizing parallax errors. The edge rulers are anodized for surface protection and give them our well-known “peak red” color.
