   Whittam high quality, fine tolerance, engraved, Horizontal Rulers (Rules/Scales).  Rules can be engraved in Stainless Steel, Hardened and Tempered Steel, Bright Mild Steel or Brass.  Graduations on the Scales can be left open, or filled with the color of your choice--black being the most popular.
