12'' Centerpoint Ruler

Item #

Rating:
82% of 100
Targets the exact center every time. Find dead-center on your project by simply matching numbers. Just measure the end points (say, 7 3/8"), then find the corresponding number (7 3/8") on the lower scale. Made of durable tempered stainless steel with etched, black-filled numbers in standard markings.

I needed this more than I thought
So who can't divide by 2? Nevertheless once I began using, it was so simple I'm afraid I can't divide anymore!

12" Centerpoint Ruler
I've had a 24" Centerpoint ruler for years, and wouldn't trade it for anything. There have been times that a 24" ruler was just too big for what I was working on. While browsing through Rockler in San Diego, I noticed there was a 12" version of the Centerpoint. I snagged it, put it with my 24" ruler. For smaller projects, this can't be beat!

I bought it because I needed a 12 inch rule. I have been pleasantly surprised by how often I use the centering function. Works great.

Wonderful Tool
dialI had a centerpoint ruler before but lost it in transit to my new shop. This ruler is just what I needed for a replacement. The previous one was 24 inches this one is just the right size for the projects that I do. Wonderful tool for finding the center of dial rods, as well as center of boards that I cut.

centerpoint ruler
This little sweetheart does the math of finding the center of any project part. I looked hard for this I don't think any other rule does what it does.
