To clarify the obvious, it’s not a precision straight edge. It is however decently straight for what it is with a ruler as accurate as any non-precision standard ruler. So if your using a feeler gauge to check for straight you bought the wrong product.The part I’m most happy about is that this extrusion has two spines ( ? ) at 90

Not for sewing. I bought the 72" version, intending to use it to roller-cut 60" fabric. Doesn't work. The bottom of this Savage Straight Edge (SSE) has a slight arch, about 1 - 2 mm, in the center. This keeps the SSE from contacting and holding down the fabric. Even when you push hard on the SSE, it's rigid L shape keeps it

I really like this ruler set. It is Stainless Steel and great for intricate work. It is extremely thin which allows precise measurements, however let me caution you...You need to use fine tip pens and pencils. This ruler would not work as well with a broader tip marker for drawing lines, as a thicker straight edge. I use this mainly

These rules do not measure from the edge: the zero mark is about 2mm in from the edge. I was comparing several rules, and these looked the most readable (which they are: very easy on the eyes). But they're no good for precise measurements on a table saw or router

This 12-inch acrylic ruler is such a nice tool for any crafter. It is sturdy and see through, marked with lots of horizontal lines to ensure a straight line up. On one side it's edge is metal (great when using craft knife) and on the other edge it is beveled which is nice for accurate line drawing. It was just what I was looking for,

I am pleasantly surprised how nice this ruler is. It’s thick and sturdy. One side metal insert the other side is beveled. Two key features.You’re not cutting through the this. 0 and 12 are not up to the edges which is fine by me.Nice line weight to the grid and markings. Grid is at 1/4” squares with a cross hairs graduation at 6”

This ruler is sturdy and I have been using when cutting wood veneers and leather. A couple things I would like to see are the lines on the metal side be visible at the edge. Currently they are obstructed by the metal because the silk screening is on the bottom. Also, while the grid squares are useful on the metal side having the minor

OK, folks, it's a ruler. I use it for cutting Leather hides, the cork holds the ruler steady with general pressure from me, as you would expect. I have several 12" cork backed rulers like this, but needed the longer one for this purpose. I also buy my Artist Paper in rolls, 18" wide, so this is perfect for cutting this as well.

This is a classic metal ruler like parents kept in their office 40 years ago. I was confused by the product photo when I ordered it, I thought the blue edges in the photo was a rubber edging on the ruler itself, but turns out that's a blue plastic sleeve the ruler arrives in and you pull it out to be a plain metal ruler.

The edges of this were so sharp that almost every time I use it I cut myself on the ruler itself. It functions properly and is made out of good quality metal, but I have given myself multiple cuts just handling this ruler. I would not recommend this to anyone looking for a metal

This ruler is a little thin. But that also makes it flexible and it doesn’t appear like it would break. But this business of having a ruler that you line up either side of your object on the same number and then the zero will be in the center is just something I wish I had known about a long time ago. I love it for

This ruler would be perfect if the 6" mark was at the very end of the ruler instead of 1/8" from the end. So if you butt the end of the ruler up to something your measurement will not be correct. Thus this ruler is 12.25" in overall length. I'll be trimming the ends of this ruler. Very flexible. Easy to read measurement

For someone who is learning to quilt, the Grace Company TrueCut Ruler and Rotary Cutting system made cutting fabric with a rotary blade so much easier.

I purchased this along with the rotary cutter hoping that it would help with cutting 8 to 10 layers of fabric with a more accurate 90 degree angle. With that much fabric, it is difficult to keep that true 90 degrees. I hoped that this ruler with the rale and cutter would help. Well, it sort of does. The cutter on the rail does not

I needed a longer metal ruler for several of my craft projects.

The center find option is nice, and the markings are very clear and easy to see, even with my poor vision. But handle with caution, so you don't find out the hard way how sharp the edges are and how pointy the corners are. Consider this review advanced warning. I hope it doesn't ruin my canvas

This is an excellent copy -- very accurate -- of the old "L-808" that, for years, was sold in the US by the 'C-Thru Ruler Company'. A few years ago 'C-Thru' was purchased by the 'Acme' company and this "L-808" had become nearly impossible to find in the usual "drafting/Art Supplies" stores. Some clerks aren't

If precision is important to you, I wouldn't recommend this item.

I only noticed because I used it on my dot grid

I am using this tool for drafting pant sewing patterns. It's the ideal tool to get your exact crotch length and shape measurements. Once formed to the shape you want, it holds its position. I then can transfer the shape to my patterns for an exact fit. Saves time in fitting patterns. I've also used this for curved art work. Only downfall

I'm using this for foam board RC planes, and it is just about perfect for the task. It doesn't slip, and the guide both protects my fingers and provides a nice vertical surface for the blade. The one issue is that the non-slip material doesn't go to the edge of the ruler; there's a 2mm gap. So for cuts where there is not much foam or

This is a fantastic ruler. I use it when I'm creating mockups at home and I'm using a Xacto blade. It has a finger guard on it so that you don't cut yourself as well as a squishy part on the other side of the ruler so it doesn't easily slide. It works exactly as intended and its got a good weight to it to. I'd highly recommend this ruler

As an architecture student I need a good straight edge for cutting rolled paper and a wide range of model materials. This one is the best for it. Some others are flexible and leave you with ragged lines; not so with Alumicutter. It is quite stiff and has a soft non-sliding underside so you can count on a clean cut.One thing I noticed:

I worked in an industry wear we had to make precision cuts all the time. This is the best ruler for that. Lets you rest your fingers in the groove to protect them while you are cutting (we also used this groove to rest our Xacto knives in when we weren't cutting so they easily found when needed).
