From the same manufacturer as the hugely popular Japanese Try and Mitre Square comes a saddle version produced from durable anodised aluminum extrusion. Accurate and functional, with internal faces 60mm deep. It will stand, sit or lie over an edge, for marking out or checking 90° and 45° angles.

From square to just a little unsquareProtective packaging could perhaps saved this square from being just a little skew. As is, when checking with a foot angle (DIN 875/2, calibrated), the mitre end is almost square, and less so at the other end. Overall, this lack of precision does not matter very much to me, as it is used for marking around the edges of chamfered planks and construction timber. I haven't tried it for more exact marking..

Expensive, crude but goodThis product is basically an extruded piece of aluminium with punched out sections. The numbers are painted on and the edges are rough - it is very crude in the way it has been made. It is however precise and reliable. I'm not sure how long the painted markings will last but they haven't been scratched in several weeks of moderate use.

YOU'RE SO SQUAREWhen you keep reaching for the same tool you know it's a good one. This square and marking saddle is married to my saw and neither would go anywhere without the other.
