Source for 36" or Longer Zero Centering Ruler?

Postby David Jenkins » Fri Jul 24, 2015 10:12 am

The longest zero centering ruler I can find that's appropriate for use with the Morton Mini Surface is 24". The one I'm using now has the zero 6" from one end, and 18" from the other. It reads both English and metric.

I would like to find:

1. Metal rule
2. Both measurement systems
3. Zero at 12" from end, 24" from the other.
4. Pre-drilled at the 12" end, preferably, to accommodate a threaded dealy that will affix that end to the cutting grid.

Does such an animal (or one close to that - longer would also work) exist? Source?

Thanks.

Try, online, some of the woodworking supply companies. Some of them carry this sort of thing. I don't remember seeing one that meets your requirements but I wasn't looking either.

Maybe a bit fancier than you want:
WWR36 and WWR900

http://www.woodpeck.com/woodworkingrules.html

Available in imperial or metric, but not on the same rule. They have combination rules, but not a centering rule.

Thanks, all. I went to the woodpeck.com web site, and I think they have exactly what I want. Looks like good quality stuff, too.
