This is an improved version of a nineteenth century much loved and unique tool. Originally the Stanley No.1 Odd Jobs (Patented 1888). This is the forerunner of the modern combination square, and still a very handy, relevant and useful pocket measuring and marking tool today. It combines the functions of square, mitre square 45° and 135°, depth gauge, level, marking compass, marking gauge and rule. The body is cast and machined brass and the rule is brass edged beech. Fits easily into the apron pocket, it will soon become a real favourite around the workshop. P.S. The flat opposite the scribe point is the screwdriver to adjust the pivot screw. Supplied with 150mm(6") rule which is graduated in cms, mms and 16ths.

The No.1 Odd Jobs (The Stanley's tool replica) should be a layout tool. But the no-name piece of hardware I've received recently should't be, because:

1. Machined metal parts are not flat and don't lay on one surface (so it is not possible positioning tool correctly).
2. The rule is not perpendicular to the body (so is not possible to draw/check perpendicular lines).
3. The level is not level (so it not possible to check the level and plumb lines).

The quality of the product is adequate for the flea market, not to the reputable company.

Very disappointed, fiddly and not accurate.

I struggled with justifying the purchase of this especially as you have to buy the 12 inch rule as an extra ......but when I did I was a happy chappy! Its solid and a "nice" thing to have ....thats difficult to explain, sure I have plastic and metal rules, a marking guage but this is "different" ....I lost it the other day and turned the workshop upside down to find my friend. If your in two minds it .....and the 12 inch rule too.

I have had one of these for several years, whilst not a tool for the skilled carpenter is certainly the one I grab when building something outdoors. It saves carrying many other tools and is accurate enough for this purpose. And its nice to have as an old style tool. Just one tip, keep the rules indoors, they swell up in a dampish shed and wont fit the square.
