Inside Read Folding Ruler
« on: June 14, 2021, 09:34:59 PM »
I finally found an inside reading folding ruler at a decent price.  I’ve wanted one since I found out they existed.  It isn’t in great shape on the outside, but the inside is fine.  Keuffel & Esser Co. N.Y.  Black and White.  I have an outside read Lufkin to show the difference.
You might say I have a tool collecting problem....

I got about a dozen  new old stock Lufkin's about 5-10 years ago. I've always used them. They have gotten harder to find!Btw always check the brass end, that is one place where than can be off. When you work at a sheet metal shop the shop foreman's ruler is the shop rule. Everyone else's is checked against his (or hers) I did find  a couple of magnetic  yardsticks were  off by an 1/8" most other tapes and rules have been "spot on!"
