          Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace® Aluminum Straight Edge:

          While it is straight and the total length is 48in, the first inch on one side is 1/32 short. The other first inch is 1/32 too long. The person cutting it off did not properly align the index mark for the saw. (clearly visible 1/32in from the end) And it was not deburred after cutting. I am planning on returning it to the store. A great store / owner, I am sure there will be no problem returning it.
