The Pocket Scientist - Scientific Ruler and Reference

Carry your passion for science in your pocket.

This laser-cut, laser-engraved, 0.5 mm enamel-coated stainless steel scientific pocket ruler is designed for passionate scientists and engineers who may find themselves needing a quick straight edge, wondering what's next to Technetium in the Periodic Table, pausing to double-check the 6th significant figure in the speed of light or who somehow forgot the 42nd digit of pi.

Keep it in your wallet at all times so you're always ready to do some science!


1) Imperial and metric straight-edge to 85 mm with machinist ruler to 10-mil resolution (254 um)

2) 12 physical constants and 14 fundamental equations from physics and chemistry

3) Temperature, mass and pressure unit conversions plus trigonometry quick-reference

4) Arc and circle drawing protractor tools with 1/8th inch or 5 mm resolution

5) Full periodic table with atomic number reference in each period (row)

6) Phone stand slot (insert another sturdy credit card)

7) 42 digits of Pi (because we could)

8) QR code which links to rotating monthly Easter-eggs on a hidden GLG page

9) Fits any normal credit card or ID holder. TSA compliant and more compact than a standard 6" engineering scale ruler.

Makes for a perfect unique gift for scientists starting school or at graduation!

It was too late arriving make sure about delivery times before ordering

useful pocket guides

I didn't expect the information on these pocket scientists to be so clearly etched into the metal. I expect them to last a while! Excited to use them for years to come.

Great service. quality product

Ordered this for a small present for a teacher. such great quality material and etching. really easy to read, very solid. all the important notes that might be useful. just so neat and well designed.
There was a slight issue with postage, but once i contacted them everything got sorted out very proffessionally, and it even arrived in time still, so really pleased with the level of service too.
