Please be warned:
There is a nice metal ruler hanging next to the tool shelf. It’s got inches on one side and centimeters on the other. Very nice feel. Very long - nearly 50 inches and 130 cm. A wonderful straight-edge and measuring device.
IT IS FLAWED ON THE METRIC SIDE.
It seems that somebody forgot how to count. It’s all fine up to 65 cm. Then 67cm. 66cm IS MISSING.
Therefore, if you’ve ever measured something longer than 65cm. OR, you measured something across that gap (like measuring 40cm from the 30cm mark to 70cm) then you’ve marked it 1cm short. Really sucks after the wood is already cut.
I have marked the device and circled the missing cm. Please be advised.
p.s. If the tool mavens saw it in their mercy to get one that is properly calibrated, I’m sure we’d all be happier for it. But, the current one can be used with the above caveat.
