  • Quite good ruler

    posted by Assato on 05/22/2010

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Good price (could be better, but it's still cheap)

    - Has both cm and inches scales

    - Up to 0.05 mm precision in the cm side; 1/64 in on the inch side

    - Made of stainless steel (or so it says).

    - Comes with a red, plastic protective wrapping bag (quality is not very good, but it's better than nothing).

    Cons:

    2 out of the 4 corners (the ones on the left, at the zero marking) are very sharp, be careful.

    Only these 2 corners are dangerously sharp; the ruler edges and the other 2 corners are not.

    OtherThoughts:

    I suppose corners are sharp on purpose, so that you have a very precise starting point for your measures (which might be harder to achieve if the corners were rounded and/or the zero marking was not at the very left of the ruler (ie, if there was a space before the origin)).

    If you don't mind losing that "feature", you can manually round the corners using a tool that does so (and which I don't know the name of in English, lol... a file, maybe?).

    Bottomline:

    Good one, if you need a ruler of this length, buy it.
