    • Steady
    • Good quality
    Cons:
    • pricey
    • not with centimeters
    I use this ruler for calligraphy. It is very steady and works like a charm. The only con is that measurements are not in centimeters as well, only in inches.

    Great product! It’s getting harder and harder to find these, so I opted for a size larger than what I actually need. I use this for calligraphy planning and it works well—I’m happy I needed up with larger than I was originally planning because this size is more versatile for a wide variety of products. I’m a very happy customer!

    The Alvin Pro Parallel Glider is a solid piece of drafting equipment. Must have for professionals. They're not invincible, but when taken care of, they can last for years and years. And DEW Drafting Supplies is an awesome company with good prices and exceptional customer service!
