Forge Steel Stainless Steel Rule 300mm
A good rule to work with!
There isn't too much one can say about a rule, but here goes.
It is straight, with well finished parallel edges.
The scale is at a slight angle (about 1mm from end to end), which I find very irritating to the eye but it's not enough to spoil the rule as a measurement tool.
The scale is in imperial & metric units on one side only, and has very clear markings. The markings are etched and filled in black. Should last well, but only time will tell.
The other side of the rule has an imperial to metric conversion table - not sure how much use this will be to most people. There is also a metric tap drill size table and a WW - UNF to metric table.
I would have much preferred both sides to have had measuring scales with order reversed so that the rule could be placed in the most appropriate way up for the measurement.
The rule is 1mm thick, 25.4mm wide (1") and quite stiff, so very good for marking out, scribing, etc.
All in all, can't complain too much at Â£2.

Excellent value for money
Excellent value for money. I used to have an expensive one till I lost it, this is not to flexible in comparison. The 0.5mm markings are hard to make out but that maybe my eyesight these days.
I'd recommend buying one if you are after a steel ruler

Can't fault this, even has a hole to hang it up by.
