I love my Shinwa saddle. Although its metric, I don’t really use it as a ruler.

Yeah i’ve never actually used the measurements on squares or bevel gauges etc. They usually tend to be odd or awkward to use anyways. I just use them to mark/strike a 90 or 45.

I looked and could not find one eiither; especially in the desigh you show.

Maybe you could add a strip of adhesive backed measuring tape to it. Some come with both inch and metric on then.

Incra calls it a Bend Rule.

Check Shinwa square on Amazon. Lots of options, all metric.

I have the 6” Incra “bend rule” and the Shinwa saddle. I would buy either again in a heart beat, though if funds were tight, I would go with the Shinwa first.

Have your say...
