Straight Edge Rulers

  • A straight edge ruler is a type of measuring tool that is used to draw straight lines or to measure distances in a straight line. It is typically a long, thin strip of material, such as metal or plastic, with straight, parallel edges that are used to guide a pencil or other drawing instrument along a straight path.
  • Lance straight edge rulers are available in a variety of lengths and widths, and they may have markings in different units of measurement such as inches, centimeters, or millimeters. They can be used for a wide range of applications, including drawing, drafting, woodworking, metalworking, and engineering.
  • Some straight edge rulers may also have additional features, such as a raised edge or a beveled edge, that make them easier to use or more versatile. For example, a raised edge can be used to prevent smudging when drawing with a pencil, while a beveled edge can be used to measure angles or to guide a saw or other cutting tool.
  • When using a straight edge ruler, it is important to make sure that it is placed securely on the surface being measured or drawn on. This can be done by holding the ruler firmly in place with one hand while using the other hand to guide the pencil or drawing instrument along the edge of the ruler. Care should be taken to ensure that the ruler is held at a consistent angle and that the markings are read accurately to ensure the best possible results.
