Quickly check the flatness of a surface or wall, or to lay out cut lines on panels and sheets. The weight of a steel straightedge can be cumbersome, and unless extreme accuracy is necessary, an aluminum straightedge can be a welcome, lightweight alternative. 1-3/4" wide and 3/8" thick, the 24" long Straightedge weighs 18 oz. and has a tolerance of 0.001", while the 38" weighs 28 oz. and has a tolerance of 0.002". Black satin finish with a hole to hang it nearby. A great idea and a super value. Imported.

Excellent Aluminum 24" Straightedge
Reviewed By:   (Boston, MA) 
Basically the 24" aluminum straightedge arrived as advertised and a bit more. The quality for the price is quite good. The straightedge is indeed straight and flat and within the advertised tolerances. Again, as advertised, the straightedge has a single machined edge which is reasonably wide so it can easily sit on its edge which is machined very nicely, within advertised specs. It has an ergonomic handle formed along the top (edge opposite the machine edge) which makes it easy to hold securely which is very nice if one is using on and around expensive hardwood where a slip or drop could do some serious damage to the wood (I make guitars). One more time, as advertised, this is a non-graduated straightedge. But it fits the bill for the straightedge I needed. I have other graduated stainless straightedges but this one is safer to use around the guitars and is well within the tolerances I need for the job at hand.

Precision at a great price
Reviewed By:   (Vacaville, CA) 
Beautiful and handy too. These are wonderful tools, very precise and lightweight. I found several uses form checking my boards, my planes and as winding sticks. Apiece of masking tape on one top edge makes wind easier to see. One piece of advice - buy them one each - that works out to be cheaper than buying both.
