The self-sharpening blade can produce clean, burr-free cuts for many years of precision trimming, and the rotary safety shield covers the blade throughout the entire cut (which prevents the chance of injury).

Frequently Asked Questions

What are straight edges used for?

A straight edge tool can be used to compare the straightness of an opposing surface, to perform precision layout work, and to perform a number of other tasks where the straightness of a particular surface is a major concern. There are a variety of straight edges, and they can be used in many different applications.

How is a ruler different from a straight edge?

A straight edge is a wooden or plastic tool that is typically used to draw straight lines. It can also be used as a guide for determining if a surface is flat. A ruler is a type of straight edge tool with measurement gradients, which can be in centimeters, millimeters, or inches (or even all three). These measurements are marked on both parallel sides of the ruler and are typically used to measure length.

Can I use a straight edge with a circular saw?

One of the most important ways to improve your woodworking is to have the tools you need to cut straight lines. All you need is a circular saw and a straight edge, and you’ll be able to make accurate cuts that are just as straight. With the right straight edge tool (such as an edge guide), you can easily cut straight lines on wood.

Can I use a level as a straight edge?

You most likely wouldn’t buy a level you can use as a straight edge tool, but it can come in handy if you have one.
