Benchmark Tools™ Rigid Seconds 6" Black Chrome Woodworking Ruler-106609 (DCE)
*Blemished/Cosmetic Second items have cosmetic imperfections*
Most have scratches, discoloration, small voids in the castings or other blemishes. In addition, the name brand on each blade has been ground off. We guarantee that the length and graduations will be accurate and that it will be a usable and fully-functional measuring tool. Instead of recycling the steel, they are sold at a fraction of the price.**
Every woodworker should own at least a few precision machinist rules. They will incorporate a new level of accuracy in your work. The most common graduation type for woodworkers is 4R, or 1/8ths and 1/16ths on one side and 1/32nds and 1/64ths on the reverse. What we discovered is that most woodworkers never use the 1/32nd and 1/64th markings as they are hard to see, are too precise for most tasks, and are tad confusing. Just what does 19/64th mean? For some time, we toyed around with making a woodworking ruler with just 1/8ths and 1/16ths on both sides. Then we saw the Lost Art Press blog by Christopher Schwartz from 2/4/21 and decided to take the leap.
Our rules are made from Japanese rust-resistant stainless steel that has been tempered creating a ruler that can flex if needed and snap back straight. The edges and ends have been ground parallel, straight, smooth and square. Graduations are produced via a photoengraving process creating very consistent and accurate markings with uniform line widths. Once etched, graduations are white filled for maximal readability. Graduations are etched and not printed so will not wear off with prolonged use. Graduations conform to strict international EEC 1 Accuracy Standards, i.e. +/- 0.2mm at 20° C for 1000mm ruler. Markings feature quick-reading 1/8ths and 1/16ths on both sides. The black chrome finish provides scratch and corrosion resistance and maximizes readability by achieving a zero-glare, high-contrast, EZ read finish that enhances readability in both low and bright light conditions. Each rule comes in vinyl storage pouch. These are well made rules and will provide years of reliable service in any shop.
