Especially when I’m doing wire work, I’ve found it helpful to have a ruler close at hand. But they always seem to slip around when I’m trying to measure something, which is annoying.
So I found this place online where you can download a printable ruler: printable rulers
I printed one out on cardstock, and laminated it. Then attached it to the edge of my work table with (removable) double-sided scotch tape. Now I have an unobtrusive ruler at the ready, whenever I need to measure some wire or stringing material.
