Rulers & Measuring Tools

Make sure all of your projects turn out perfectly with rulers for any occasion. Big or small projects are no problem with a variety of rulers, from 30-cm classic desk rulers to yard sticks and 25-foot tape measures. Get accurate measurements on lumber for home improvement projects or use a 30-cm ruler to scale parts for your model train set.

Small Project Measuring
Keep small rulers on hand for quick measurements of all of your small projects. Great for classrooms or hobbies, 30-cm rulers offer a convenient measuring length for a variety of projects and store easily in your drawer or binder. Make sure each piece of your new model is exactly to scale or measure fabrics for small sewing projects. Keep a easily cleaned acrylic or stainless-steel ruler in your kitchen drawer for measuring thicknesses of dough or cubes of chicken.

Large Projects
Be sure your new shelf fits your wall perfectly or that replacement countertop slides right into place with a tape measure for your home improvement projects. Mark and measure large pieces of fabric for quilts and clothing with a yard or meter stick. With a longer measuring surface yet rigid design, yard and meter sticks easily measure difficult material like fabric and paper.

Straight Edges
Draw straight lines for cutting or reference with rigid, straight-edged rulers. Use smaller 30-cm rulers to divide space on notebook paper for note taking columns. With a yard or meter stick, lay out the pattern for your child's Halloween costume. Get straighter cuts on your boards for your bathroom remodel by marking them out with straight-edged rulers.
