If you go into any shop where they really care about accuracy, you're going to find squares like this. Everybody needs them and uses them all the time to know that your tools are set up at a true right angle, your table saw, sander, joiner, or drill press, you name it.

For detailed work like guitar jobs, small squares are especially useful. You don't want a big clunky square to square up a chisel with or checking to see that a sawn or planed edge is square, for laying out projects, any project.

Our Machinist Squares have hardened steel blades that are precision ground to within six-ten thousandths of an inch. With tool steel handles, they'll stay accurate for a lifetime of use in your shop.
