Anyone know where I can get a 1/32 scale ruler?

I would recommend using an architectural scale/ruler. The 3/8"=1'-0" side is the same as 1/32 scale.

Otherwise the compNy CTT INC. out of Dallas, Texas; makes the cheapie tranparent plastic ones available in RR Hobby shops.

I have both, and always use the architectural scale, as it is more accurate.

I have a few of the most accurate and useful ones I know of, gifts from the owner of the now defunct ScaleCard. If you should wander up to Westlake Village I will give you one. They are of clear, flexible plastic and accurate to something like 0.001-inch. Questions? You know the number and e-mail address. By the way, the CTT rules are almost useless to us; the ones I had went down to only 3 scale inches.

MicroMark still may sell a six inch stainless steel rule with 1/32-inch markings and two rows of offset holes, perhaps four scale inches apart useful for marking rivets.

I have the cheep ones and the expensive ones, but the best are architectural, or machinist, but if you have a woodworking store or go to the woodworking websites they will have them also.
But don't tell Marc you are building in 1/32 the "Bastard Scale"
he'll take you off his mailing list!
