    My old plastic Mayline parallel rule warped one hot day, but this aluminum parallel rule is very good quality, heads above what I'd had, plus it arrived quickly. Thank you Drafting Supplies

    These are a dying breed. This one is better than the maylines that I considered standard before (no longer made).

    Nice Parallel Bar, but...

    Nice quality and smooth rolllers. But if using drafting dots to secure your drawing, be careful to lift up the parallel rule away the drafting board each time when sliding up and down. Otherwise, the low stance of the bar's top plastic edge, will catch the edge of the drafting dots and "roll them up" and off of your drawing.

    As a Contractor we have a need to make drawings and not via computer we have been using old drafting table and T Sq. but we found this great 36" Pro-Draft Parallel Bar by Martin Universal that fit our 42" table at such a good price we could not pass it up. It arrived well packed, installation instructions and installation was straight forward. Unit works well and on line ordering experience with Drafting Equipment Warehouse was also excellent.

    Service was personal and prompt. I had to exchange an item I incorrectly order and they were very accommodating and friendly. I plan to use them again.
