Must-Have Marking & Measuring Tools

Folding rule

For longer dimensions, a 6'' folding wooden rule provides more reliable accuracy than a retractable steel tape measure because there's no hook on one end that can get damaged and affect the accuracy. Get the kind with a sliding extension for dead-on measurement inside cases and boxes.

Lufkin makes an eight footer with the sliding extension. I found one at tools-plus. My dad had one for as long as I can remember. I made the mistake of letting my two year old get hold of mine. SNAP. They just do not fold sideways.

I am looking for an EIGHT FOOT folding rule. My dad used one all his life and it is now so worn that it is not as accurate. I have looked but can only find a six foot for him and he is not satisfied with that. Can anyone tell me where to find an EIGHT foot folding rule?

Works great and handy for inside measures. One person told me that he calls it a plumber's rule because of the extension slide for inside measures.

A folding rule with metric markings would be a great tool to have in my shop and on the job.
