  • Not just a folding rule — Hultafors
    design details for a theatre but refused on religious grounds and resigned his position Who would dare do that these days And how was he to earn a living now Karl Hilmer realised the educational value of being able to see both measurement systems at the same time so he developed a comparison rule This was quite simply a measuring rule that showed both the old inches and the new centimetres The problem was that the rule was awkward to handle in a single long piece Enter Karl Hilmer s next innovation the folding rule The capital of SEK 5 000 came from an English lady who had heard about the new ideas and wanted to invest in them Thus the rule manufacturing company Svenska Mått och Tum stocksfabriken saw the light of day and generated many times the return on the original investment Today the company is Hultafors AB still the leading manufacturer of folding rules in Sweden Since the beginning sales of folding rules have developed dramatically and their total length would easily stretch several times round the globe The folding rules come in different materials aluminium fibreglass or standard wood depending on the environment they are to be used in The wood used is no longer the original genuine folding rule wood as mentioned in old advertisements Until the 1960s the rules were made of Swedish whitebeam similar to rowan but since then downy birch has become the new original There are still different lengths of inch Hultafors folding rules no longer show old Swedish inches but rather British imperial inches At 25 4 mm the imperial inch is slightly longer than the Swedish inch s 24 7 mm However there are also Norwegian and Danish inches 26 15 mm which have increased relative to the imperial inch The reason for this as rumour has it is that everything used to be measured in imperial inches However when timber cargoes reached Britain on ships from Denmark the measurements never matched up as the timber had dried slightly during transport To solve the problem the Danes officially increased the length of their inch to compensate for the drying out on the voyage to British shores So what can you measure with a folding rule today Well obviously they give a high precision reading in either just the metric system or the metric and imperial systems At the beginning of the rule there are a few small figures in brackets along with a III in Roman numerals This is an official EU marking to indicate that the measuring tool is precise enough to fulfil certain pre specified measurement directives At 8 5 cm along the rule is a triangular red symbol comprising the letters KHJK This is none of your international mumbo jumbo but simply Hultafors own corporate symbol Ask us Your name required Your e mail address required will not be published Country required Select country Our markets Austria Belgium Denmark Finland France Germany Ireland Italy Luxembourg Netherlands
