No shop should be with out a set of these....
Wouldn't be with out these little helpers. Eyes aren't what they used to be, so any thing that takes the place of a steel rule once in awhile is greatly appreciated....

Good precision.
I checked dimensions on all bars in both directions. All were well within the specified tolerance, with greatest deviation on the 5/16 bar of minus 0.0025 inch. Should make setup a lot easier.

What is the specific material that is in this product that prohibits its sale in CA?
Dean S on Oct 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Your question should be directed to the State of California rather than Rockler.
They are made of brass. Probably a substance known to the State of California to cause Cancer when injested by lab rats at a higher than normal rate of consumption.
