    Zero Centering Yardstick - where to buy

    Hi all, I am looking to make my own dry mount jig similar to the Zone VI dry mount jig.

    I have been looking for a zero centering yardstick but have had no luck.

    Places I have checked:
    Amazon
    Art Supply warehouse
    Michael's
    Hobby Lobby
    Dick Blick (online)

    I hope someone has a suggestion where I may buy what I am looking for.

    Thanks in advance

    Gary

    Try searching for a zero centering ruler instead of yardstick. With a quick search I came up with this website with options up to 48". http://www.geionline.com/rulers/cent...entered/1033a/

    Metric readings are easier to work with. McMaster. It's a good idea to spend extra for etched markings rather than just painted on lines. Center-finding tape rules are available too; but I find them less convenient when working with prints or mats.

    Their prices are good and service has always been as well. 36 inch is around $14.
    I tend to procrastinate on stuff. One of these days I'll do something about it.

    Home Depot. Aluminum with centering and longitudinal scales. Etched and filled markings. 36 inch was less than 5 bucks. 48 inch (none in stock) was marked at about 7 bucks.
