Measure twice, cut once. This six-sided aluminum ruler lets you do it in metric and imperial. We’ve put inches and centimeters on one scale for a clearer eye on proportions and easy conversions.
Another side has the 0 at the exact middle of the scale, for measuring out the center without having to flip and fumble the ruler. The remaining four sides have more standard measures. One is marked out in centimeters, and three of them in inches, divided into scales. 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 lets you scale measurements with accurate proportions — it’s a tool borrowed from architects and cartographers but will also help you keep things precisely measured.
For accuracy and longevity, the material of a ruler has to be dimensionally stable and durable. This ruler is made of solid aluminum, so there’s no warping or reacting to heat and cold — the measure will always be right.
The aluminum has a nice weight and stature, and an understated finish.
