I would be lost without that N Scale square; I use it all the time and not just for measuring.  All of the websites which list it show as Unavailable so I would agree that they are no longer available.  Mine was handed to me as a sample while at a show in the U.S. years ago.

Not sure if direct links are allowed, but this one is from a different manufacturer and shows available on ebay.

I plan to order one on payday.

I got the exact same one about 6 weeks ago.  Recommended.

Good to know an alternative is available.  This type of model work is much easier with the right tools.

Sent a query to see if they will ship to Canada.  The listing says they do not.

I didn’t know these things were so hard to find.
I’ve got a couple made by ZONA, stainless steel, made in the US.  Part #37-434
If I remember, ZONA was/is a competitor of Exacto.

I just looked up ZONA and they’re still in business and it’s still the same part #.
I’d bet ZONA is available through Hobby Shop distributors.
Now admittedly it doesn’t have N Scale measurements on it but that’s why I have Scale Rulers.

I can order them to my place and send them up if you wish.

I had a couple of people offer to buy one and send it to me but their cost for postage is more than that of the seller.  So, I guess I'll bite the bullet and order one myself.  I really do want one of those.  Thanks to those that offered.
