Sliding Measuring Gauge
This ruler is a 6 inch aluminium gauge with a red sliding spacer to quickly and consistently measure short spaces.
You can set the measurement that you want and quickly measure ⅝”, ¼” or 3/4” effortlessly. Measuring correctly can have an enormous impact in the finished look of any sewing project, so measuring accurately is a must!
The red plastic spacer is adjustable in 1/16 inch increments and allows you to pre-determine the dimension of a seam or the distances between button holes and to transfer them fast and precisely. It is adjustable, but stays in place for repeated marking. Simply lift the gauge up and down to check your measurements along a hem or seam. Long tape measures can easily get in the way when making short measurements, and the risk of making mistakes is much greater. The set plastic spacer is a life saver here. This little lightweight gauge is the perfect size to throw in your bag and take to your sewing class or retreat!
This Sliding Measuring Gauge has some surprising and useful extra features.
- There are 3 little holes to secure the gauge or the slider with a pin.
- Use the hole in the upper left corner to pivot the ruler so that it may be used as a compass to trace a circle or a curve.
- The point at the upper left corner also helps to turn points and press them out.
- Both columns are designed with useful marking widths. The “inch” column is exactly ¼ inch wide and the “centimeter” column is ⅜ inch wide– great for a quick check or marking line. The inch side of the gauge has 5 notches, one at every inch, to make marking even easier.
