Forestry professionals use Conway-Cleveland lumber scaling rules to measure a piece of sawn lumber's board feet content. Conway-Cleveland has produced them through many years of experience and constant improvement. Through this experience, they have come to be the preferred instruments of lumber inspectors everywhere.
The rules have split hickory shafts and hardened stains steel heads. These heads have sharpened pre-bent points that are great for grabbing lumber. Because they are stainless steel, the heads will never rust. The figures on the lumber rule are large and crisp, which makes measuring easier. Each rule has a six-inch walnut handle. This grip is sized for comfort and rounded to fit the palm of your hand, preventing slippage.
In addition to its construction, two polyurethane coats give the rule great abrasion resistance and durability.
