We measured this rule with a precision caliper - the display read 6.000" on the dot. Now that's Starrett accuracy! Features 1/32" graduations on the short end of the rule, making it perfect for setting bit and blade heights. Compact size means it will always be handy in an apron pocket. The first two long edges are graduated in 8ths and 16ths, while the edges on the flip-side are graduated in 32nds and 64ths. Finely-etched black lines on a satin steel background make for easy reading and minimal glare. Rigid tempered steel won't bend out of shape. End graduations go up to 1/2".
