I like the style and size of the straightedge, but I can't help feeling that its accuracy (partly because of the length) will always be susceptible to the vagaries of weather conditions. This I think would limit its usefulness to only a general indication of straightness. Have you been able to assess its stability yet, or is it too new? Best wishes for its success.
