Description

In Detail

A combination square small enough to be carried around in a back pocket and large enough to do the majority of your everyday marking out jobs. Just think, how often do you actually use the full length of a standard 300mm(12") combination square? Not that often, we will wager. This is a very nice looking tool, the blade is pearl chrome for maximum clarity and the stock is cast iron with a blue crackle finish and ground edges and faces. Calibrations are both metric, in centimetres and millimetres and imperial in eighths and sixteenths one edge and thirty-seconds and sixty-fourths (for the keen sighted) on the other. The centre finder is a useful feature, not that often used but handy for those who turn, whether in wood or metal. Other functions are try square, 45° mitre square, rule, depth gauge, marking gauge and level.

Good item needs some fettling

Purchased as a convenience item when marking out etc instead of my 12" combi square without spending a fortune and it is a far easier to handle -it fits well in the hand. My one has both metric and imperial on the same blade ruler face which is an extra bonus - the imperial is marked in 64ths only and numbered every 8 i.e.e 8, 16.24 etc. and a raised line every 4 - a little unusual I think.
The blade was not perpendicular and after some fettling I found the blade slot to blade edge was out of parallel by 0.5mm over the 150mm but the blade is exact. This means that the blade cannot be swapped over in the stock without resetting. The blade will also stick as it slides through the stock if not opened properly Not a biggy as I have a perpendicular combi square but I docked a mark on quality.
All the edges were sharp which I honed away with a fine diamond paddle including the clamp pin to minimise wear due to above blade issue.
The stock is cast and a few small open bubbles are on the milled faces which has no effect on the function. Paint absolutely no issue. The scribers on these I keep for marking gauge pins .
Overall - it's a keeper! A practical piece if you're willing to give it 30mins work.

so close

Bought this largely due to need for an accurate small comb square, and the positive reviews. The tool comes in a bnice plastic case with foam insert, so far so good. Out of the box it has a nice finish and feels heavy and quality in the hand. I checked for square, and it was out by a little, only a little. I got the 45deg thingy true with 5 mins work. The stock similarly squared up with 5 mins work and some emery on a glass sheet. It took some careful fettling (careful cos you don't want to overdo it) with a diamond file to get the ruler square in the stock. Now that is done the tool looks like it could last a lifetime, and it is not hard to get it 100% true. The level and the scriber are a waste of time, they should be omitted to make the tool a bit cheaper. The level in mine had no liquid, ergo no bubble, , hence the low score for quailty, If there was a 4.5 option for value i'd have gone for that... with not very much work I have a great tool.

Fits in pocket

I bought this in error in a hurry online ,thinking it was 300mm. However I find its size a great advantage around the workshop and can fit it into a pocket so it is always to hand. I can read the scale on this lovely little tool better than any of my other rules. A great misbuy!

combintion square

This is a geat piece of kit. Since I bought it I use very little else for marking out. Its extremely accurate, and so useful as a depth gauge.
