A straight edge is invaluable for ensuring accurate work throughout your projects. The edge is made from an aircraft grade aluminium extrusion, making it extremely strong and corrosion resistant. The bottom edge has been machined using state of the art techniques to ensure it is flat to within 0.04mm over its entire length. Used as an aid for machine set-up such as calibrating jointer or planer thicknesser tables and aligning fences on router tables or table saws.

The edge weighs 800g and the machined base is 10mm wide, meaning it can easily stand unaided on the machine surface while you make adjustments. The premium quality straight edge has been anodised to enhance its durability and there is a hanging hole for easy storage in the workshop. Measuring 965mm long the edge perfect for general use across a multitude of projects. There are also crisp and clear metric scales on both the front and back of the straight edge, giving the option of it being used as a rule if needed. The edge is supplied in a heavy duty cardboard tube and both ends are covered with protective polymer caps. The straight edge comes with a lifetime warranty - if any straight edge fails due to a material or manufacturing defect it will be replaced free of charge.

Colin North

As flat as it says and good price. Same comment about m=measurement direction, but I don't need it, so 5 stars here.

LT

A well made item and very useful. It is only 4 stars however as the measuring scale runs the same way both sides which is really irritating. If the scales ran opposite ways on either side it would be a 5 star item.

Stephen Whiteside

This is a great addition to aid in my machine tool calibration activity. The straight edge has a nice finish & weight to it with the added bonus of having a rule along its length. Excellent value, highly recommended.

Liam Corrigan

Great straight edge. Has a nice weight to it. Will come in handy when making guitars. My only gripe is that the direction of the rule measurements goes in the same for both sides and not left to right one side and right to left the other side.

Gary Bell

Well made, not heavy but its able to sit on its own, leaving hands free to check alignment etc. Im a guitar builder and need a straight edge for a number of tasks and this fits the bill. Great price for what you get.

Ashley White

The quality of the product is excellent however I am very disappointed that the direction of the scale is the same on both sides. One side should go from 0cm in the left to 97cm right and the other should be the opposite. As it happens, both sides go from 97cm on the left to 0cm on the right. The way it is set up makes it unsuitable for what I intended.

Mick Sidaway

Excellent self supporting straight edge. Long enough to help sort out twisted timber and a great help setting up my bench planer.

Richard Oxley

Very useful for applications other than a leveller/straight edge. I'm going to use it as the 'backbone' of an optical bench for testing lenses and prisms, etc. Of course I'll have to make all the holders, clamps and attachments but its shape makes it relatively easy to do so. Ideally, being fully metric, I would have liked it to have been 1000mm long, but, never mind, it's a small point.

David Letford

A fantastic straight edge for the price

Victor Burclaff

Great quality straight edge that stands upright on its own unlike most others that need to be held.

Mark Guilford

You don't know how useful one of these are until you have it - since ordering this straight edge I find myself reaching for it instead of my spirit level.

Simon Baker

This is a great size straightedge. I've used it to set up surface planers in the past, and I've also used it on guitar necks for setting relief.

Very nice quality straight edge.
