This safety rule is manufactured in stainless steel, zinc plated and available in either imperial or metric measurements.
The metric rule has both scaled graduated in mm and cm up to 300 mm and the imperial rule is graduated up to 12" with a short metric scale in mm and cm. The following inch subdivisions are available on the imperial rule: 1/16", 1/12", 1/10", 1/8", 1/4", 1/2".
They are manufactured with a unique 'M' profile which has one side slightly longer than the other which helps to ensure fingers are kept away from any knife edge when cutting or scoring.
This rule serves as a more durable equivalent to the wooden and plastic rulers in everyday use.
