I could be wrong but I think I recall them offering a ~36” model too. I suspect it s a .001 margin of error per 12” and the .003 vs .005 is a typo – perhaps a “copy/paste” error from the 36” model

I thought the same thing. But out of curiosity I emailed Taylor Toolworks last night. First thing this morning I received email from Dan of Taylor Toolworks who wrote, “Yes the 50” is Guaranteed straight to within 0.003” over the entire 50” length.”

What got me thinking about the level of precision initially is that the Veritas Aluminum Straightedges from Lee Valley are spec’d at within 0.003” straight over their entire length per the description on the Lee Valley website. Both the Lee Valley and the Taylor Toolworks aluminum straightedges have the same size/profile and figured they might even be sourced similarly. I don’t know about fit and finish.

I am thinking about ordering one for planer set-up.
