  • 1 Lufkin Branded Device

  • The E. T. Lufkin Board and Log Rule Manufacturing Company started in Cleveland, Ohio in 1869 to serve the logging industry. Lufkin produced rules of superior quality, using only the best materials, and the company flourished, gaining a substantial following of loyal customers. The company soon moved to Saginaw, Michigan, which at the time was the center of the logging industry as settlement of the young United States moved relentlessly westward.

    Innovation is the key to success for every enterprise, and that was certainly the case for Lufkin, when, in 1890, Lufkin introduced the first steel measuring tape produced in the United States. Numerous innovative products were introduced in the following years, the most successful being the folding wooden rule. The folding rule remained the dominant measuring tool for tradespeople of all types until the 1940s when Lufkin, along with several other manufacturers, made the retractable tape measure a reality.

    Today, as Crescent Lufkin, the brand focuses on innovative measuring products from Apex Tool Group, one of the largest hand tool manufacturers in the world. The extensive Crescent Lufkin line of products includes power tapes, rules, long tapes, oil gauging tapes, measuring wheels, and one of the widest selections of special-purpose tapes and rules available for commercial and industrial use. Crescent Lufkin measuring products are among the more than 2,600 quality hand tool products offered under the Crescent name – products professional tradespeople know they can count on to get the job done right.

    I am a 74 year old ex carpenter (contractor). My father and I used this rule when I was 14 years. It was a great ruler then. It worked great, was very accurate and seemed to last forever. I still have some old ones that are worn pretty good but are still working. I ordered a new one to use a little (I am retired) and leave for my grandson. This new rule is a disgrace. The slide falls out of the rule when extended. Hinges are sprung.The wood parts are bowed. The graphics are terrible. Do not try to measure anything with this thing because it is not accurate. It is more than an 1/8" off in 4''. Lufkin had a great product for most of my life. Who ever decided to have this made outside of the USA should be fired. I spent almost $30.00 for this piece of junk. I just put it in the garbage. I would not think of passing this on to my grandson. Is there any quality control at Lufkin? They should be ashamed of this product.

    Lufkin X46 Red End Six Foot Rule. I''ve been using this specific model rule for more than 50 years. There are other brands but they all seem flimsy in comparison to me. Nowadays people wonder what I am using and make fun of me for not using a tape measure (although I do now carry a tape measure on my pocket too). I hate to hand it to someone because they don''t know how to open it up and want to bend the sticks in the wrong direction. Oops. But for me they are an extension of my hands and one lasts me for several years. Just give it a dab of lubrication now and then, and do it before dirt and dust gets a chance to wear on the hinge joints. Will I buy it again? If I live long enough to wear my new one out -- yes, I''ll buy it again.

    Lufkins quality on this item (folding ''Red End'' rule with brass hook on one end and a sliding brass extension on the other end) has seriously deteriorated. After owning and loving my own for 25 years, I purchased one for my son as a gift. I had to return it because the sliding brass end would slide right out of the ruler when I used it. I received a no-hassle replacement from Amazon (hooray!) but to my chagrin, the opposite brass ''hook end'' of the ruler was out of whack. Rather than returning it, and given the enhanced utility of having both a hook on one end and sliding brass rule extension on the other, I decided to get out my electric Dremel hobby grinder along with a few other small modeling tools and performed surgery on the hook to get it to work like it oughta. (Performing the surgery seemed like a better way to procure a serviceable folding ruler for my son (rather than exchanging it for a third - again, probably subpar quality folding rule with brass works at each end).

    After having whipped my sons folding rule into proper functionability, I hauled out my old one, re-inked many of the worn 16th inch increment marks and will be giving the increment marks a coat of nail polish so as to preserve the markings for another 25 years, followed with a garnish of a drop of oil at every joint.

    Took this thing out of the package and it was as springy as a slinky. I bought it for the slide extension and I remember my Grandfather''s Lufkin. Not the same anymore. Unfortunately, they have moved production down to Mexico and quality went with it. Will it work, yes. But I wouldn''t want to use it on a job site, where it will be in and out of a toolbelt all day. It will have to stay on the bench. Even then it will piss me off every time I use it.

    This ruler is useless, it''s off by 1/16 of an inch compared to several of my other measuring devices which all agree with each other. The joints are very sloppy compared to my old Lufkin rulers.

Paint on ends of individual sections sloppily applied also. My solution for slider was to put a thin coat of spray paint on back an sides, just flat tape over graduations first.

    You need one of these with the sliding rule to measure inside dimentions.

    I have a couple old ones that are showing ware, thought it was time for a new one. I never had one with a hook on the other end. It looks like an good improvement. Haven''t seen one like this at the hardware store.

    This is a great folding rule. The fit and finish may not be as good as a well preserved vintage model from the days when every carpenter and cabinetmaker carried one, but it is surprisingly nice for the price. The hook on one end, and the slide rule on the other make this the model to get, as Lufkin makes quite a few different versions.
