Using the Rule - Continued
Measuring Technique (fig. 4-19). Often it is necessary to measure a piece of work which has a length larger
than the rule which is used to do the measuring. An example of this would be measuring an 18 inch length of stock with a
steel machinist rule (fig. 4-19).
Figure 4-19. Measuring Technique
Aline the end of the steel machinist rule with the edge of the stock being measured A (fig. 4-19).
Use a pencil or scribe and mark the stock at the 6 inch measurement.
