Checking the wood for square is one thing…

Checking blade angles, jointer fences, etc… is quite another.

ONE accurate square is essential to have. An easy way to check any square, purchased or shop made, is the “flip” method. You knife a line, flip the square along the same edge and knife another line. the difference in parallel is twice the actual error.

The beauty of having one accurate and pleasurable to use combo square is all that it can do. It can check for square and 45 degrees on wood, measure bit height, check depth, measure thickness and width to it’s limits, check for straight edges, verify fence and tool right and 45 degree angles, check for straight sharpening…

-- It's all good, if it's wood...
