I have an aluminum 12” speed square that I use more than the combination square, and if I could buy a more accurate one machined out of something like stainless steel I would. The speed square is fine, but the head is so short that a piece of sawdust can seriously throw out the notion of 90°, let alone whatever may be happening inside the head and locking cam.

I really mostly use my speed square as a story stick. Although once I build my shop and have room to hang all my tools, I’m gonna have to spring for the Starrett.
