RS PRO Straight Edge

What is an Engineers Straight Edge?

The RS PRO Straight Edge is a hand tool which is used as a measuring device, known for its extreme accuracy to either draw a straight line or to ensure that a surface is flat.

What is a Straight Edge used for?

They are frequently used to check that a machines surface is flat, such as a mating machine, where this is an essential requirement. They can be used as an aid for drawing, cutting or creating a very precise line. They can also be used to check or calibrate the accuracy of other tools that need to have straight edges.

They don’t have any markings or scales, but they do all have at least one precision edge that is straight. Due to the thickness and design our Straight Edge retains both shape and accuracy, whilst remaining easy to handle and use.

They are available in different lengths dependent upon your requirements and the needs for this particular tool.
