I have long worked with Russian measuring tools ,mainly because they were available in good prices after Soviet Union collapse.They are excellent,to
my opinion.May be some are a little more bulky from what are you used to,but the quality is impressive,especially for the price i have
acquired them.If there is interest i may post some pictures from my collection.More,they are some on e bay from Moldova or Ukraina in good
prices yet.

I bought two USSR straight edges. Pretty much junk. My guess is I got rejects. Not even close to being flat.

To fernballan . In your posting of Oct 31 2017, #4, there is a quote of my posting about using Russian instruments and your comment is only a question
mark(?). May be a spurious response or something of the software.Anyway thanks.

Are they twice as heavy as they need to be?

I only have good experience of Russian tools. Maybe I've had luck or that there's more Russian stuff. I live close to Russia

Every Russian Tool I have seen were well built. I would prefer USA, Swiss or European built tool but if I had a choice between Chinese or Russian I would go Russian every time. I hired a fellow from the Ukraine years ago and he was a Journeyman Scraper over there and he was one of the best hand scrapers I had ever met ever.

They were first in space so I do not think they're making such bad stuff Richard
