Greetings Chunk, Hey bud, haven’t seen you on in awhile…good to hear from you again….. now for your question: I have a couple of Starrett combo squares that I like real good. They are pretty well on the money as far as being square. But…. most of the time when I draw lines and make marks, I usually use a marking knife instead of a pencil…. more accurate… But here’s a trick I learned in college when taking drafting and drawing house plans and mechanical drawing….. Once you decide where you want to start drawing the lines put your pencil down FIRST, and move the square TO the pencil (pencil being sharp, that is). But I wouldn’t use a square that’s out of will cause you more fustrations…Invest in a good combo square….I suggest the Starretts…..They are the best as far as I can see…....
