will flow downhill? Probably will work.
For lining up 2 x 4's in a home construction project? Probably will still
work fairly well, if you check it carefully, first.
For transferring bluing while you are scraping your lathe bed?
NO WAY! I hope you are joking, as those )$*(@ rails are HEAVY, and
I'd hate to have to hold one up against a wall with 2 fingers while trying
to pencil in a line on the wall. I can't think of any other use where that
material would work as a "straight edge". They also have these darn
rivets all over the things that louse it up as a straight edge, even!
