S730. Parallel Glider 10in length
Professional-quality rolling ruler/ parallel glider. 10". For fast, accurate guidelines. Specify inches or metric. This is the deluxe version of the Rolling Ruler. This item has rubber wheels that slip much less than the plastic wheels found on most rolling rulers.

Use this tool to speed up making pencil guideline. Draw your first guideline. Then make a single column of dots or small marks for each subsequent line. Line the rolling ruler or parallel guide on the first mark. Then you roll down and draw your guidelines at your marks. The ruler keeps the lines parallel. Mark your paper using a ruler, template or dividers with tick marks. Great for drawing guidelines for text blocks on larger works where a T-square is not practical.
