Response to Solvent proof self-healing mat

Hi Bruce:

I have used different mat's over the past 30 years and both sides are marked with almost the same grid lines.

ANYWAYS.......super glue and my paint thinner solvents play hell on the mat's finish!

I use one side for measuring, then turn it over for cutting/glueing.

I have one green mat that is completely void of any markings.

Long,long ago, (1987) I bought two metal rulers and one plastic one.

One metal ruler has 1/72nd and 1/48 scale markings and the other one had 1/32 and 1/35 markings.

They were named Murphys Rulers.

My plastic ruler was marked for 1/24 scale.

I bought them at the local hobby shop in San Jose, CA/USA as it was before we got the internet/web system.

You may be able to find these measuring rulers on the web.

BTW: I have never cut through any of my mat's and I have built over 300 models on them since 1984.
