Must-Have Marking & Measuring Tools

 

steel rule
First, make sure you have the basics: 6" and 12" steel rules

Look for a matte or satin finish with etched markings (rather than stamped) for accuracy and readability. Increments should go down to at least 1/32". Buy one with a combination-square head and you'll multiply its value at least threefold by adding the ability to check and mark perfect 90° and 45° angles.
