I’d ask Philip Marcou and August about this one. Starrett, Mit, and Bridge City are no-brainers but PM mentioned another brand that’s escaping me. My technique is to own one Starrett and keep it in a box. I check it against other squares & see if I can peen them/grind them to use. I’ve had lousy brands (Swanson) turn out dead on. I’ve had more expensive (Gladstone and Crown) come out junk. Aside from the big$$$ guys, I think they’re all hit or miss. The most square thing I found in my shop using my Starrett is a plastic CD case!
