The Conway-Cleveland lumber scaling rules are used to measure the board feet content of sawn lumber. They are the product of many years of experience. Through constant improvement, they have come to be preferred by nearly all lumber inspectors everywhere.
With flexible shafts still hand-crafted from the finest split hickory money can buy, these rules have a special quality due in large part to the meticulous care we take in the selection of our raw materials.
Our patented heads are one-piece, light-weight hardened stainless steel with pre-bent sharpened points for grabbing and flipping the lumber. They will never rust and the points stay sharp a very long time. The figures are large, crisp, bold and black for ease of reading.
Each ruler has a six inch walnut handle, sized for comfort and rounded to fit the palm of your hand. Finally, each rule is protected by two coats of polyurethane, giving lasting abrasion resistance and protection. Three scale configurations offered: 4-line: 9',11',13',15' one side 12',10',14',16' other side. A second 4-line configuration: 4',5',6',7' one side 8',9',10',12' other side. The 3-line configuration: 8',10',18' one side 12',14',16' other side. Two head types: Go-No-Go notched or straight.

A centimeter scale is integrated along one edge and the head is stainless steel marked for metric thicknesses.
