    Well that was a silly thing to do!

    Can you sand it smooth and still use it, or not?

    I broke my 24" ruler also. Oh, well. Replacing will have to wait. It is only one corner, and I have been using the other side. :roll:

    I have been using mine with a chipped corner. I have the 50% of coupon too - thanks for the idea of using it on a ruler.

    I got one at a quilt shop closing and one corner was gone. I paid $2 for an 18 x 18 omnigrid. For that price, with or without corner. When I get to need that side I just flip it around. Never had a problem.

    Doesn't that just want to make you spit :-( Been there, done that - I sanded it to round it off. I just realized that I have used my sander on more than one quilting tool ...

    If you have the pieces, put the pieces back in place wrong side up and then use a piece of clear strong packing tape to put over the pieces. I did that for one of my rulers until I could get another and I'm still using it. It works great for a crack in a ruler too. It doesn't interfere with moving the ruler on the fabric.

    I have a friend who always got rulers with her 40/50% off coupon if she didn't find anything else in the store. She's got a very nice ruler collection now. :D

    Sorry yours broke but glad you have a wonderful son to have fixed it for you!
