Metric <inside> folding rule ? Hultafors available in US ?
« on: November 29, 2020, 12:47 PM »
Hello -    I like inside folding rules, I have some Wiha/Long Life metric <outside> folding rules (including with their awesome depth gauge), am looking for <inside>.  The Hultafors 559-2-10 "contact-meter" appears to be what I'm looking for.   The festool rebranded stabila, appears to be an outside rule.
If anyone knows of a US distributor for the Hultafors rule, please let me know, thanks in advance,    Rich M.

Lee Valley offers a 2m long rule with metric scale on both faces but it is zeroed at both ends. If they had put the zero on the same end of both faces one side would be inside reading but the description does not read to me as if that is the case so not an inside reading rule. :-(

They do offer another rule (Item 24N0656) which is designed for electricians. It has imperial scale on one face and metric on the other. From the photos it appears the metric scale is inside reading. It might fit your need.
