About This Item

6-inch precision steel rule for instrument work
The most-used ruler in every shop just got better! We added a center-finder, and vertical end scales to this durable, easy-to-read tool.

Satin chrome steel with sharp black etchings reads well even in poor light. Accepts pencil marks nicely, too.

The inch marks are in 16ths, 32nds and 64ths—for fast readings or extreme precision.

Centering rule
With zero at the center, this rule extends left and right to locate the center of a neck or bridge saddle.

Vertical end rules
On each end are small vertical rulers (1/32" increments). Useful for measuring saddles, nut and pickup heights.

Metric version
Same features as our inch ruler, with 0.5mm, 1mm, and 1cm increments.

Size: 6" x 3/4" (152mm x 19mm)

Perfect size. I will get a lot of use out of this as it simplifies a lot of measurements.

Very useful shop rule

By

Verified Buyer


This is a nice quality ruler. It's clear and easy to read. It now lives within easy reach on my bench, and replaces a hardware store ruler that I was using.
I should have also ordered the metric version, since often time string spacing at the bridge is quoted in mm rather than inches.

Pricey, but paid for itself after one week

I never had a ruler I liked so much. After my calipers, this ruler is most used measuring device in my shop. I use it from raw wood to the final setup. It's always in my shirt pocket.

I have used a center ruler for years. This one is so handy because of it's smaller size and the numbers are really easy to read! Thanks Stew Mac!
