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)

Very handy multi use tool.

Using as a center finder for any piece of guitar I am working on is very helpful. And the gage on end of ruler helps me determine if action height is good. Used that feature on my OM guitar and had to tweek truss rod to straighten neck and fix the action. A real time saver.

Nice addition to the avaialble set of rules

I think I have an older Stew-mac rule hidden in every drawer and pencil jar they could possibly be in, but I was happy to see the inclusion of the center finding rule on a rule of this size. With that and the markings across the end (mm markings fine enough for doing rough classical setups), I almost don't need the old ones anymore - well, lets not get carried away.

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.

By

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

I saw the benefits right off the bat! Its amazing how useful and simple this tool is. I don't need it all the time, but when I do I'm glad I have it.
