OutstandingUntil you pick up one these you won't understand the quality. They are far superior to any off-the-shelf squares you might pick up on the highstreet. They look and feel and amazing. The machine quality and accuracy are spot on. I've had the 150mm version of this for a long time now and love it. I thought I'd treat myself to this and I don't regret it all. I was extremly surprised to find it comes in the storage box. Most other online sellers offer this seprately. You may look at the cost and think it's a big jump from a regular brand but the difference is massive.
