Every woodworker should own a few precision machinist rules as they will improve the accuracy of his/her work. Traditionally, the most common graduation markings used by woodworkers are 4R, or 1/8ths and 1/16ths on one side and 1/32nds and 1/64ths on the reverse. The fact is most woodworkers never use the finer 1/32nd and 1/64th markings as they are hard to read, too precise for most tasks, and  just plain confusing, e.g., just what does 51/64th or 19/32nds really mean? So, we had rulers made under our Benchmark Tools brand that included the most commonly used 1/8th and 1/16th graduation marks on both sides.  

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.

These rulers come in two different finishes, balck chrome and satin chrome. 

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.

The satin chrome finish minimizes scratches and corrosion and increases readability by achieving a brighter, non-glare finish that enhances the contrast between the black graduation lines and the surface of the rule.

Each rule comes in vinyl storage pouch.

These are well made rules and will provide years of reliable service in any shop.
