Anyone have any luck with these?

At just $13, and with two positive on-site reviews…I’m awfully tempted.

Those are the same as the Lee Valley ones.
I have the 38. It is dead on…. more than anything any woodworker would need. :-)
I’m very pleased with it.

Yeah these look very similar to the Lee Valley ones. I have the 24 and plan on ordering the 38. Really good buy.

I’ve had good luck with Garret Wade over the years. I have the LV 50 in aluminium SE.

Buy the set and don’t look back. You need to make sure you don’t ding up the edges or drop them or you will compress the edges. That’s about the only downside to aluminum versus steel. I keep mine stored in a mailing tube in bubble wrap.

I bought the 2 of them a few months ago, their great well worth the money. I don’t have anything straighter in the shop to check them!
