The Mayline Metal Roller Mobile Parallel Ruling Straightedge with E-Z Grip Cap and Armoredge 7271ASE has all the features you need to help you draft the perfect design. This parallel drafting bar makes it so easy to draw impeccably horizontal lines! The corners of your technical drawings will always be square with this drawing board straightedge. The Mayline parallel ruling straightedge comes in a choice of 4 sizes: 36”, 42”, 48”, or 60” lengths are available. This measurement is for the full length of the blade from end to end. The blade measurement is also the minimum size tabletop drawing board this parallel ruling straightedge will fit. For example, you can install a 36” drafting straightedge onto a 48” table, but it will not fit on a 32” table.
This parallel ruling straightedge has a variety of first-rate features. A built-in Armoredge stainless steel edge protector prevents nicks and dents from your drafting tools. This fine, nearly invisible strip of steel is inserted above the raised inking edge. The E-Z Grip cap is a textured bar that runs the full length of this drafting straightedge. Raised by 5/16”, this comfort grip bar makes controlling your straightedge a breeze. It also gives you a handy place to put your tools, especially when your drawing board is set at an angle. Your Mayline parallel bar purchase includes all the necessary hardware for mounting the drafting bar above your drawing board. Stainless steel braided nylon-coated guide wires on either side give durable and balanced stability. Self-lubricating pulleys ensure smooth operation.
Choice of Rollers
This Mayline parallel drafting bar is designed with retractable rollers so that it glides over your drawing surface. You have a choice of Delrin or metal rollers. The chrome-plated brass metal rollers are recommended for paper and vellum surfaces. The Delrin low-friction polymer rollers are recommended for Mylar drafting film. This Mayline drafting straightedge gives technical drawing an immediacy lacking in computer aided design – and your Mayline never goes down in the middle of an important piece of work!
