The actual rolling mechanism is very nice, and the rubber ring idea is brilliant, giving this rolling ruler a lot of traction.

However, the ruler itself is horrible. Whoever designed it quite obviously did not know the first thing about ruler design.

Let's start with the mechanical faults: There are no spacers to raise the ruler above the paper. The entire edge of the ruler is resting on and therefore scraping along the paper, doing damage if you are not careful, and at the very least does not allow for smooth movement. Also, since the entire edge rests on the paper, you cannot use this ruler with ink, as the ink will be sucked under the edge by the capillary effect, and smear.

At this point already nearly irrelevant, but the ruler is not tapered either to reduce parallactic reading errors of the scale.

Beautifully made, tracking is very accurate as it is different to my previous one
an instruction set would have been useful

well made and accurate rolling rule. Has a quality feel about it. I needed it for calligraphy and have found it works well.

Super tool for anyone who likes to create beautiful lettering or calligraphy. Super easy to draw perfect lines with perfectly even placement. Totally satisfied with this tool!

Excellent product of qualitative materials. This ruler shows the relative angle in degrees, has a vertical ruler to 5cm and horizontal to 20cm (starting from -2 and finishing at 22), on the horizontal scale, it also starts from the middle (as 0), going both ways up to 10cm with +2cm (12cm, unmarked) on both sides. Length precision is 10 sections per cm (10 mm per 1 cm), whilst the angel precision is 10 sections per 10 degrees (1 degree precision) with 22.5, 30, 45, 60 and 90 marked distinctively, as well as every 10 degrees between 0 to 180. It also employs tiny wheels, enabling the user to draw precise parallel lines without having to adjust the ruler everytime. The wheels have plastic bands around them, preventing them from slipping on the paper, improving the precision.

These rules are much better then the usual all plastic versions you see in the shops and altough they cost a lot more, your outlay is returned in the rules operation, less slipping greater accuracey when transfering a parrell line, ease of use and soother operation good angluar measurement could only be improved by the provistion of a good storage box. if you tried the rest now try the best

I purchased this item because I do chart work. There is nothing wrong with a Portland Plotter but this parallel ruler, makes life so much easier when plotting bearings on a chart. With its rubber wheels, it runs nice and smoothly on paper charts and on perspex (covering a chart). Just wished it was slightly longer but thats not too much of an issue. A good purchase

Small and very accurate, this high quality gadget is so well made and gives no 'slippage' on the paper as many cheaper models do. Hard to fault.

The best rolling ruler you can buy, expensive but should last a good while.
