started out with compass nugget.1970? have had many over years, current choice is Garrett ACE 350. collection includes: ace 250, AT Pro, ATX, Whites 6000, whites classic, still have my compass too.
Many times on my way to work I stop by a flea market type store, the other day I seen a steel straight edge, 6 foot long, i grabbed it , thinking I can use this on my upolstery work or my wood working, as I looked at it I seen the starrett name, wow , what a find, then I seen the price sticker 10 dollars? wow , catalog number C404R looked it up when I got home, one website shows price at over 600 dollars,,, very happy camper
