At last an affordable longer scale!
from New York, NY
Comments about Alumicolor Triangular Drafting Scales:
After years of having to draw lines on theatrical ground plans to extrapolate with a 12" scale when taping out a rehearsal room--an affordable, durable 18" version! It has changed my life . . . and become a standard gift for my envious colleagues.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The scale is twisted, making it unusable. How a brand new aluminum scale is twisted, I do not know. I'll make sure to put it on a flat surface the next time I buy a straight edge or scale.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Some of the best scales I have ever used!
from Hampton, VA
I ordered these metal scales (Hollow 12" Architect's and Engineer's) to replace some plastic scales that managed to chip and break last school year. The durability is AMAZING! I really enjoy how little pieces don't flake off of them every time I accidentally tap them against a surface or accidentally drop them. What I'm not a fan of is how the numbers are applied: I would have loved to have gotten a scale where the numbers are engraved into it instead of applied like a decal, but hopefully that will not pose an issue in the future. Otherwise,I would highly recommend these to anyone needing a scale for any task.
Merchant response: The markings on Alumicolor's™ scales are photo-anodized, a process which makes the calibrations a part of the aluminum. You'll find this finish to be extremely durable!
By Supplier to the Engineers
from Burbank, CA
These were great! We use them in our office to accurately scale our mapping and engineering layouts. The metal is sturdy and heavy so that it won't move while you're drawing your lines. I may get a couple for the office!
I really enjoy this product!
from Salt Lake City, Utah
I love my solid aluminum architect's scale and engineer's scale! Their weight and finish give a feeling of confidence in their accuracy and usefulness. And since everyone else uses plastic scales, I know immediately which scales are mine when they get misplaced.
Best Scale Ever
from Starbuck, MN
This is a brilliant scale. Very robust with good weight, easy to handle, and clear lettering that will never rub or wear off. This is the best scale I've ever had in over 25 years using them. It may be good if the center groove on each side was color-coded for more ease of use.
