Not quite square...

Had to tune the square up to 90 deg but the 45 deg is not accurate at all and not adjustable either, so I will be measuring my 45 degree angles with something else...

Yes, a nice product

Une très belle équerre, bien construite, précise: le test par retournement par le lui-même, on ne voit qu'un seul trait.
Je recommande ce produit à mes amis.

Good value but you need to tune it up

If you get one of these thats square out of the box, consider yourself lucky. This is NOT a the same quality as Starret or Mitutoyo. But neither is the pricepoint the same - you get what you pay for. The casual DIY user or beginning woodworker beware. It's absolutely critical you check it for squareness before you start using it and file it with a needlefile or shave it down with the rulerblade to achieve decent precision. Lay it down on a piece of MDF or similar with a true, straight edge and cut a line with SHARP marking knife or an EXTREMELY thin and sharp pencil before flipping it over and checking for squareness. Repeat on different spots on the wood to be certain your reading is correct, Lots of good youtube videos on how to tune it up. This way you CAN achieve good accuracy.

not square, and not 45 degrees

The first item I got wasn't square. Although this can be adjusted using a file or the method suggested by Rob T, the 45 degree angle on this item was 45.5 degrees, this is of course impossible to fix, and Axminster send me a new one, which was a great service. The second one was square out of the box, however it still had a 45.5 degree angle on the other part. Empire didn't respond to my emails and apparently didn't respond to Axminsters' emails either. In the end it didn't get resolved and I got a discount from Axminster on a new order. So great service from Axminster, lousy product and service from Empire.

Not quite as accurate as other reviews

Bought this square on the reviews of others however was disappointed by the accuracy. Contacted Axminster who immediately sent a replacement and a returns slip, but the next one was nearly as bad. 30 thou out when flipped to check for accuracy. Was just about to return them both when I saw a You Tube video by John Heisz entitled Adjusting a Combination square. A couple of minutes work after watching the video and I now have a totally accurate square.
