In Detail

This is a gem of a square, nicely made and very versatile. With a stock length of 62mm and a blade length of either 100mm or 150mm it is just the job for getting into tight corners. The end face of the 25mm wide stock is ground square to the long side so it can get into places where no other square can reach, just the job for squaring up a tap as it starts to bite, for example. Apart from the obvious use as a try square it can serve as a depth gauge and as a gauge for marking off parallel lines. With the rule set to the required offset and a pencil or scriber held against the end the gauge can be run along the edge of the work and a line can be marked out parallel to the datum edge. This is quicker and more accurate than marking off two points and joining with a straight edge. The blade is marked in both imperial and metric.

Great concept,

Locking mechanism completely inadequate; in that it does not lock the rule to the square. Consequently it can be difficult to use. Another irritation is that measurement lines on either side of the rule do not correspond/ are in different positions.
Nevertheless, despite poor construction, the concept is strong enough that I find myself using it on a daily basis.

nice little tool

I've gone through some combination squares & they either keep getting stuck or the mechanism goes but this one is very smooth and has lasted the longest & still going strong,.

One for the tool box.

I've had mine for quite a while and found it to be very useful, very good for marking a consistent line off an edge, used as a square or rule on its own. Only criticism as others have said, the locking mechanism could be a lot better.

A must have tool

Very handy and true. The locking mechanism could be of a better quality as the ruler slides with a bit difficulty on it and locks not so easily. Other than that a must have tool.
