Must have straight edge and ruler
Great necessity for any woodwork. Straight edge with tapered ruler edge is fantastic to use. Weight is awesome for stability.

The numbers are very small but I didn't buy it for those. It is straight as an arrow and works extremely well. There is a knife like edge along one surface and easily shows any deviation on the surface that you are checking. Also has a hole on one end to hang when not using. Great value for the price.

Happy with my straight edge
I am a beginning luthier and was in need of a straight edge. I looked into Stew Mac straight edge, but they don't have the rule with theirs and it is considerably more expensive. This straight edge is nice and weighty, and the rule seems very precise. If you are a beginning luthier or wood worker, I think this would more than suit your needs.
24" edge spanning the length of my workboard.
Presice rule markings.

They are not Starret or hand...
They are not Starret or hand scraped Bridgeport, but they are pretty darn decent for the price. A company that sells these for luthrie use charges 80% more for a less accurate product.  I know if you put the words, gun smithing, luthrie, jewelry, etc in front of a simple product the price goes up 50%-500%. These are kinda thin, but they are supposedly parallel so the non knife edge is also straight. They work quite well for me. .001" will make a guitar not play at all on one string at that fret. So far these are working fine for set ups on instruments and tools alike.Rockler ships fast, and safe.

The product is exactly as advertised...
The product is exactly as advertised and is a high quality straight edge with a precision ruler. It makes an excellent dual-purpose straight edge and ruler. I find, however, that I mostly want to use it as a straight edge and have lots of other rulers to use for measurement. The thin design of this straight edge makes it fairly easy to knock-over so I find myself being very careful with it to avoid damaging the straight edge, my workpiece, or my equipment when I accidentally (and quite easily) knock it over. If you're really looking for a straight edge and don't want to have to baby-it then look for a different product. If you want (and really need) the dual functionality then this a quality ruler/straight-edge combo.

The one I received is slightly bent
Not expecting straight edge this price to be super precision but the quality control is terrible. The bevel edge is very thin and mine came with lots of knicks and dings along the bevel. Also it is bent at the two ends so when put flat on the side, it doesn't lay flat.
The bevel edge is very thin, so there are a lot of knicks and dings
Wonder what did they use to drill this hole
Not flat on the side
Not flat on the side (the other end)

Wanted shorter straight edge
love the rule measurement
SAMUEL W on Jun 8, 2018
Seems to be one of the better straight edges. Sturdy and heavy, 3/16" thick. Least runout of the straight edges I looked at.

I purchased this to calibrate planer and jointer tables.

beveled edge will be easier to use
Mark E on Aug 30, 2017
I bought it for level frets on guitars. I use it to check my other tools for straightness
Terry O on Apr 24, 2017
I chose this item because I will be building guitars, and this has ruler marks to make precise measurements. Also it is much less money than the same thing without the ruler from Stewmac and I don't doubt that it is better quality.

are the measurements etched in the ruler or painted ?
james k on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's Etched in. I like this tool because it's heavy. Less likely to move or slip
Are these made of stainless steel?
KStone on Jan 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I believe that these rules are not stainless. I checked mine and it is magnetic (although some stainless steels are magnetic). Igaging also lists the items as "hardened steel, satin chrome finished" and they list other of their rule products as "hardened stainless, satin chrome"
Is the thick edge lapped flat as well as the beveled edge?
Kerry S on Nov 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: yes it is, nice and straight
Is the accuracy of .001 on the 36" one as well?
Chris H on May 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sorry but I don’t have that straight edge but I’m very happy with the 24”. I use it to check the level of frets on string musical instrument I build. I have checked mine and it’s better than 001”. I will go out on a limb and say if that’s the tolerance they give then it will meet it. I’m happy with mine.
Could you tell me the weight of the 24" straightedge?
Brigitte H on Sep 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 2.15 lb.
