I have to admit that in some ways I'm still back, waaay back in antiquity. My favorite tool is the combination square with the cubit length ruler. Well, actually the 18 inch long ruler, but millenia ago a cubit was 14 to 18 inches, depending on the century and the empire. Often I need to measure just a bit more than the 10 inches you can actually measure with a 12 inch rule, so that cubit length rule is just enough longer.
Most manufacturers of combination squares make the rules with a common cross-section and are pretty much interchangeable. You can get 12, 18, 24, even 36 inch rules with preferred combination of scales from several suppliers.
