High quality wooden rules recall a time before mass produced metal sheet goods and screen-printing slandered the elegance of this simply beautiful tool. Skowhegan wooden rules are made from seasoned hard-maple and bound with brass end-caps. Lettering and graduations are engraved and hand blackened for a lifetime of shop use.

Skowhegan Wooden Rule Co.'s history dates back to the founding of the E.T. Lufkin Board and Log Rule Company of Cleveland, Ohio. In 1999, the Meisner family purchased the wooden rule business and restored the production machinery to working order.

The antique machinery produces engraved markings that are blackened by hand. Unlike printed rules, engraved rules remain legible through years of wear. The slight variance of the letter forms created by the process gives each rule a character of it's own. Because these rules are built to last, the opportunity to add to that character through use makes this a very special tool.

All rules are 1 1/2" wide, a hair under 1/4" thick, and measure their exact length, from end to end. All sizes are drilled with a hang hole.

An $8.00 oversize shipping charge will be added to shipped 5 and 6 foot rules - because they're looooong.

Skowhegan Wooden Rules are Made in Maine, USA.

Mr.

By: Marvin McConoughey (Jan, 2016)

I ordered the 48" rule with hope and fear. Hope that it would arrive intact and fear that it would not. Skowhegan did a magnificent job of packing and shipping the rule. It is a magnificent rule! The rule is truly straight--not easy over 48 inches--beautiful, and with easy to read numbers and lines. it is a rule to be proud of and to someday pass on. Thank you Skowhegan leaders, managers, and workers. Now I have two great possessions: the rule, and warm memories of dealing with Skowhegan.
