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)

Handy tool to have

I already had a 6 inch rule but the centering feature of this new one is very useful. Nice addition to the tool cabinet.

Simple concept to make centering and measuring quicker

I enjoy getting multi function out of tools. I appreciate this makes centering and measuring a quicker more accurate process.

Functional shop rule

Good tool. Good features are pocket-usable size, and can directly measure from ends in more than one way.
A slight negative is having the end-based, versus centerline-based rulings/markings, on same side, which can cause errors if you are not careful. As always, double check before you cut !

The size is just right.

This ruler is replacing one that was too narrow, and much thinner. I also like the centering feature. This gets used a lot.

Great Little Rule

Good quality metric rule, does exactly what its meant to do, find the centre !!

Can't really say much else about it, however if you need a short centre finder rule you will not disappointed.

Very cool tool!

As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. Measuring from the center out is difficult with a conventional rule. this is the bomb!

I use center finding rules a lot, and it is nice to have a small one. Easy to read too!

Useful rule.

By
(Customer's Reviews)


This is a solid rule with useful scales,including the vertical feature at the end of the rule.
The centre rule aspect is a good addition. However,do note that the centre feature reads at the LOWER edge of the rule,rather than the personally desirable TOP edge found on many other rules with this feature.
