"Starting with the positives, they are all clear and easy to read and the reverse of the 600mm rule has metric/imperial conversion and tap drill charts the measures are also accurate and the long runs are true and straight, unfortunately the cut “0” ends on all three have been sheared at a noticeable angel of between 1 and 1.5 degrees with both of the larger rules having a slight curve to that cut face, as a result the first ½ mm mark is closer to 1/3mm on both the 300mm and 600mm and about 1/4 mm on the 150mm rule."

Review 9 for Forge Steel Stainless Steel Rule Set 3Pc
"I bought this set to replace my worn out rules. I'm wondering if the previous reviewers got a different version of this product as I consider all three rules to be thoroughly disappointing with regard to the layout/markings. All three rules have on the first side metric graduations along one edge and imperial (inch) graduations along the other edge. On the reverse side it's totally imperial except for the 600mm(2 ft) rule which has conversion tables on it.
My previous set had what I consider the perfect layout: One side having metric along the upper edge and imperial along the lower edge with the opposite layout on the other side. I certainly don't want one side wasted with conversion tables! Bizarrely, these are sold as metric rules (150, 300 & 600 sizes) yet the majority of the markings are imperial.
Although the gauge of the steel is reasonable I am only giving one star for the rating due to my disgust at the product as described above."
