The Veritas Sliding Square excels at laying out measurements in two axes at once. For those who need extra length, this 10" rule significantly extends its capacity.
Made of hardened stainless steel with milled edges and black-filled etched markings, the rule has Imperial graduations to 8" along both edges and to 3" across one end. One of the long edges is graduated to 16ths, the other to 32nds. The short edge is graduated to 32nds up to the 1 1/2" mark, then to 16ths for the remaining 1 1/2".
Its matte finish makes it easy to read in varying light conditions and also lets you mark notes on it with a pencil. The diamond cut-out in the blade holds a pencil tip in position for drawing lines parallel to an edge.
