Veritas Aluminum Straightedge
A straightedge is extremely useful for setting up machines such as planers and jointers. Our anodized aluminum straightedges are wide enough to stand on edge unsupported, so you have both hands free to make precise adjustments to your tools. Each also has a hanging hole for easy storage.
Our aluminum straightedges are 1-3/4" wide and 7/16" thick, and will not rust. The reference edge is machined flat to within 0.003" over the entire length. They are available in three lengths, 24", 38" and 50". The 24" straightedge weighs 1 lb, the 38" weighs just under 2 lb, and the 50" version weighs 2.5 lbs.
