Dan—I have 5 Empire True Blue combination squares (1 – 12”, 2 – 7”, and 2 – 6”). One of the 6” stays in my apron, the others do TDY all over the bench and shop.

They are NOT on a par with Starrett, Fowler, Bridge City, or other premium tools, but I beat the heck out of them yet have never had a problem. They get dropped, stepped on, lost & found and still stay true. I even ran one through the laundry with a load of rags … made an awful noise in the drier but came out unscathed.
