Ruler on box

Starrett folding wood rule

(No longer in production)
Modern equivalent: Lufkin
X46,, part no. B00002N5KI

My favorite tool was also my kids' favorite: a 6' Starrett rule. It has seen as much action over the years in sword fights and light-saber battles as it has in the shop. (Okay, so they broke a few, but I quickly replaced them because I couldn't imagine working without one.) It's spot-on accurate, the brass extension reaches into tight spots, and it's perfect for checking carcase glue-ups for square.
