This is an amazing piece of equipment, it allows you cut your fabric while holding your ruler steady, with the added bonus of not having your hands or fingers any where near the cutting blade.
It takes very little pressure on the Rule Steady to hold your ruler straight and steady, no more ruler slipping resulting in a crooked cut, which gives the added bonus of far less fabric wastage.
I found this after I had sliced the side of my left index finger with a rotary cutter OUCH!!!, I had to keep working because I had a show coming up, my finger was bandaged in a splint making it impossible to hold a ruler with my left hand. The Rule Steady came to the rescue, and now I wouldn't be without it.
It will work on a ruler from 3 Inches to 30 Inches without any problems at all
It is also a huge help when you are losing the dexterity in your hands and fingers, I always found my left hand started to ache after a lot of cutting, especially if I needed to use a longer ruler, having to spread the length of my fingers down the ruler to hold it in place was always extremely hard on my fingers and hand. Since using the Rule Steady, aching hands and fingers are a thing of the past.
And as an added bonus, the Rule Steady was designed and is manufactured in Australia
