Got mine at a hardware store (Ace) near me, it was just a few bucks.

I lose it about once a year, but after a week or two it shows up.

It loves me.

Thanks, Phil.

I've got an Ace about 17 miles from me.  This might be the excuse that I need to go and check it out.

I just looked at their website and they don't carry the same one any more.  The one they have now is half metric.

I've never really wanted nor felt that I needed a hook rule.

They are useful if you need to locate a single hole a specific distance from an edge; more precise than holding the rule at the edge with your finger.  Lacking one, you can, for wood, use a marking gauge set to your desired distance with a regular rule, then use the point just to prick the wood.  That's harder to do if you ever work on metal or plastic.  But, if you haven't been frustrated by difficulty in doing that, it's not necessary to own every possible tool (I know, I know, violating the rules even by saying that).

I use a double square for that.

I use my double square for just about everything.
