I just used a 36” ruler that I have. I tested it for straightness against a level I have. I could have used the level, but it had rounded edges so it made it less clear if a feeler gauge was fitting under it, or just gong under the bevel and lifting it up.

I clamped a block to the ruler so it would sit upright. Worked great.

There are some cheaper straight edges on Amazon if you search for them.
