|Ruling-Up Calligraphy Aid
Most people find calculating the height of the letters and then trying to accurately measure and rule-up the lines a real chore. This is where the X-Height Set can help.
Simply select the nib size and number of nib widths and the X-Height Calculator will show the correct text height (x-height) in millimetres or inches.
Alternatively use it to identify different nib size and nib width combinations that will produce the desired x-height.
X-Height Measuring Discs
Using the X-Height Measuring Discs, select the disc for the appropriate nib size, and choose the edge of the disc that corresponds to the required number of nib widths. Use the ticks as a guide to mark the paper at the correct x-height distance. The marks are now joined and your paper is ruled up at the correct x-height.
Because there is no need to measure awkward combinations with a ruler, The X-Height Measuring Discs provide an accurate and faster method of ruling up your paper.

The X-Height Set combines the X-Height Calculator and Measuring and is on offer this month at £8.26 inc.VAT. (Normal price £10.00 inc.VAT).
