   Graduation / Resolution:       The best or minimum graduations for scaled or dial indicating instruments or the best or minimum resolution for measuring tools or gages with digital displays. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Accuracy       Accuracy is an indication of how close a measurement is to the actual value. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Length / Blade Length:       The length of the rule or blade of a square. The blade length is the longer, flat leg of a square. On most rules, the rulings extend the full length of the tool and the length is equal to the range. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Materials
   Materials       
   Your choices are...         
   Aluminum       A ductile, lightweight metal that has good electrical and thermal conductivity, high reflectivity, and resistance to oxidation. 
   Brass / Bronze       Brass and bronze are copper based alloys strengthened with additions of tin, zinc and other alloying elements. Brass and bronze alloys are machinable and have good corrosion resistance. 
   Plastic       Any of numerous organic, synthetic, or processed materials that consisting mainly of thermoplastic or thermosetting polymers of high molecular weight and that can be made into objects, films, or filaments. 
   Steel       A commercial iron alloy that contains carbon in any amount up to about 1.7 percent as an essential alloying constituent.  Steel is formable in the annealed or unhardened condition.  Steel can develop high strength and hardness after heat treatment or work hardening. Steel is distinguished from cast iron by its ductility and lower carbon content. 
   Steel - Stainless       Stainless steel is rust and corrosion resistant and can have relatively high-pressure ratings. Stainless steel contains a base of iron with additions of chromium and nickel and other elements depending on the specific alloy. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary material.

Applications
           
   Your choices are...         
   Automotive / Transportation       The gage, odometer, or distance meter is designed or suitable for automotive, truck, train, aircraft, rail, shipping or other transportation application. 
   Construction / Building Site       Measuring tools used by contractors, carpenters, surveyors, or builders, for framing, layout, or rafters or stairs, foundation construction, cabinetry, mapping, executing site plans and checking building, or wall surfaces. Typically, construction tools require a greater measurement range, higher durability and less precision than machine shop measuring tools or gages. 
   Drafting       Measuring tools for drafting, graphing, navigation plotting or drawing that have sufficient precision, but are generally less rugged compared to machine shop or tool room products. 
   Light Duty / Office       Lower precision, light weight, or lower cost measuring tools or instruments for office, residential, drafting, or other nondemanding end use. 
   Machine Shop / Tool Room       Precision measuring tools used by machinists, engineers, technicians or operators for layout, machine set up and checking of surfaces or parts.  
   Surveying / Field Work       Measuring tools used by surveyors or field technologists for mapping, executing site plans, and checking building or wall surfaces. Typically, surveying tools require a greater measurement range and higher durability than machine shop measuring tools or gages. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary applications. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Odometers are often part of an automobile, truck, or vehicle design because lifetime is measured by mileage on vehicular products. In machine tool applications, OEM scales or gages measure the travel or position changes of a machine bed, table, or stage on lathes, milling machines, CNC routers, and drill presses. Linear scales are frequently used for machine travel indication. These scales are typically mounted on the machine or are designed into the product. These devices are built into machine tools, microscopes or other instruments requiring dimensional measurement or position control.
