George S. from Chicago, IL says:

Excellent line gauges. I have a Lufkin that I have used for almost 50 years, but I'm sure it is no longer made. Your gauges are a fine replacement.

Excellent line gauges. I have a Lufkin that I have used for almost 50 years, but I'm sure it is no longer made. Your gauges are a fine replacement.
Rated by: Hal T. in San Jose, CA
I think that the 612F is the most useful version of these line gauges because the inch and pica scales run on the left side of the ruler so if you are right-handed, this provides a more ergonomic and convenient hand position when lining things up. This gauge has inches, picas, points, and agates--4 different ways to find a line that fits under the copy and check its straightness, which is very handy at the press and helps make this the most popular model. Nice price, too.
Rated by: Elizabeth L. in Bowie, MD
I was pleased to find these rulers are still available. I have one that is thirty years old and wanted a spare to take for travel. Who knew this company still made them the same way, still great quality, and economical. Thanks for carrying them!
Rated by: Heather B. in Saginaw, MI has great helpful information which makes it easy to order what you need. They also have good workers to help you get exactly what you need.

We are grateful to Mister Art for carrying the Gaebel gauges; we use them for sizing advertising and copy for our national magazines. It is difficult to find this type/size of gauge in a retail store, so Mister Art is a valuable online resource which has provided what we need, at a reasonable price, with solid customer service.
Rated by: Jenny H. in Lantana, TX
Great quality, accuracy you can depend on. I wouldn't know what to do without my line gauge! :)
Rated by: William M. in Los angeles, CA
Using this printer line guage in website/PDF doc development. Accurate, easy to see markings and use in measuring points, great addition to my tools.
Rated by: Brice M. in Springfield, MO
Operating a Press, I use my line guage everyday, multiple times. It does all I can ask. Don't know what I'd do without it.
Rated by: Catherine K. in Branford, CT
This tool is sturdy, well-made, and an excellent value for the money. I use it to measure line spacing in page proofs for books, and am pleased with the product.
