Excellent buy – Mini 0.5mm Resolution Stainless Steel Ruler (15.0cm/6-inch) Reviews

Pros:
Well made, the markings are etched into the surface of the ruler and are nice and black so can be read easily with the eye. Has a good weighty feel, actually weighs 20g. Nice and stiff to use, does not bend under its own weight and gives a nice stiff edge to cut against. Fits in the pocket! Works great as a paper cutter as well, just put over paper and tear up using edge of ruler.
Cons:
Edges are a little sharp but I am hoping that they will soften with use and this ruler will get some use! No calibration certificate for this price.
Other:
Weighs 20g and is 20mm wide and is 0.6mm thick. Made by Yong Guang. Hole in end is 6mm diameter. Can actually measure up to 155mm.
Bottomline:
Does exactly what it says on the tin! Top buy for engineers, hobbeists, mechanics etc. VERY VERY useful!
