I would like to get an accurate steel straight edge (+- .002") about 24" long for a reasonble price.   Where would you go if you needed one?    Does ot need any marking on it - just a straight edge that does wobble laterally.

Would office Depot , etc have one. Otherwise I would go to the big box..

I checked and they have mostly rulers and they are pretty thin and flexible.  Office depot is out of stack and Home Depot has aluminum.  Thanks for the thought.

I was looking at G Ragatz straight edge link and, I searched a Taylor Toolworks site a little deeper and found this https://taytools.com/products/anodized-aluminum-straight-edges?variant=18275208298547 Aluminum straight edge looks like a better price point. good luck

Looks just like the one I have from Lee Valley only cheaper. FWIW if you have prime you can get it at Amazon for the same price with free shipping.
