One Scale Per Side

Most architectural scales have two scales on each face, which makes it harder to read.  This scale only has one scale per side so we can number more of the gradations.

True 1/16" = 1'-0" Scale

Sixteenth-Inch drawings are common for early planning stages of projects.  This scale has a true 1/16" scale with the gradations marked for easy reading without having to resort to math!

Solid Metal

This is a high quality solid aluminum scale.  You don't have to worry about dropping it and it can be used as a straight edge.  Plastic ends provide an extra layer of protection.
