Very light and resillient. It seems like it would easily survive being smashed around in your pocket indefinitely. Ideal for measuring wee things.

Description

The Centipede is the metric version of the TEC Accessories Inchworm "ruler in the round". It is a functional keychain accessory that you'll use more times than you ever thought! The Centipede is a rod of 4.76 mm [3/16"] diameter 6Al-4V grade titanium with grooves cut at 2 mm increments up to 8 cm long. The outside surface is bead blasted to a uniform matte finish, and new grooves are then cut every centimeter for ease of reading. 

Lightweight and convenient, you can use the Centipede for the following:

  • Check your tire tread depth
  • Check the width of a broken fan belt or hose for replacement
  • Checking nail and metric screw sizes and lengths
  • Use as a scale for map reading
  • Measure thickness of materials
  • Comparing different product sizes at the store
  • Job-related measurements
  • Visualizing the size of a product based on reading product size specifications
  • Comparing the physical size of a part with the product packaging specifications at the store (i.e. buying a replacement plumbing fitting)
