Or are they all the same and basically made by one company in China?
I forgot about the Hosco. I haven't tried it but it has some features that others don't ..Hosco is the best.
I'm so used to the string action gauge rulers now after years of using the SM one that I think of action in terms of decimals automatically. My other go to ruler is this one with 32nds and 64ths on one side and metric in .5mm on the other...i keep trying all these neat variations and keep finding myself instead going right back to grabbing my regular ol' 6" machinist ruler, one with 32nds and 64ths on one side and mm on the other
that hosco thing looks interesting though, looks like a very different way of measuring all sorts of stuff
yeah that action is a little high for me.Fretguru has attempted the be-all-and-end-all version ...
- action gauge
- fret height gauge
- nut slot height aid
- fret rocker (3 edge lengths only)
But it's all imperial. Although there is a list of metric conversions printed on the back. With Stewmac you have to buy either the metric version or the imperial. Most of the Chinese ones have both metric and imperial scales on the one gauge.
