    I was in Wally world last night thinking of picking up a new ruler as my 6 x 24 has a slight dip in it. I thought I was going to be able to get an Omnigrid type again, but no they had what I thought are flimsy June Tailor rulers. I passed.

    the older Olipfa rulers were bad about getting Shaved off as it were...
    of course they are still my favorite rulers...I am slowly replacing them with Omnigrid ones...but you still have to be careful..

    >>After I said I couldn't find one, I thought I probably hadn't looked online. I did find one by googling o'lipfa (that is the brand of mine, too). It wasn't a place I've ordered from before, but I'll probably order a couple to replace mine. They had a lot of tools with lots of different brands. Here where I found it:

    As I said.... it looks like the same ruler, has the same model number, but the company changed it. I got one several weeks ago, after searching allover the net for one just like the one I had. The lines are NOT the same.

    This site shows the old ruler. I called, they don't have them. Scroll down about half way.

    Look at a pic of the newer design (site you posted) & you can clearly see the lines are not the same on the ruler. I have no idea why they changed the lines.

    I spent weeks searching (and made several long distant calls) for this ruler & another one with no luck. The sites I found that showed the older design didn't have them, but have yet to take those pics down.

    I have a Nancy Crow 24'x6" Super Quickline ruler & can't find any to replace it either. Am told no longer made, company out of business. So now if I find any items I use allot I buy extra, as most are no longer being made.

    Some of my rulers did get worn and my "straight" cuts were no longer straight.

    As painful as it is, sometimes one does have to replace them.

    I am planning to start a quilt and am buying supplies I think I will need. Yesterday, I bought a Super Quickline 6" x 24" ruler by Nancy Crow at a discount store here in Florida for $2.99. The store is called "Tuesday Morning".

    We don't have those stores here. Was the ruler you bought new or used? Did they have anymore of them? I've been looking for one.
