Are There Any Problems / Issues With This Tool?

If the rule hasn't been looked after or if the rule has been heavily used, the numbers can be worn/faded, particularly on the top section of the folding sections.

The steel hinges can be prone to rust if they are exposed to moisture (as with a lot of steel).

These rules have quite often ended up with paint on them which can obscure the numbers.
