I have always had problems wrapping a line around faces of a piece of stock – seems as though the two lines never accurately intersected at the edge. So I recently purchased a Veritas Saddle Square from Lee Valley. What a difference the proper tool makes! I can now accurately draw lines on all sides of the stock and it is accomplished quickly and easily.
The Saddle Square is made of anodized aluminum, 2” wide. The two legs are 1-1/4” and 2-1/4” long and both end faces are machined square within 1/4 degree.
This is a simple little tool but simple is oftentimes best. It allows the user to repeatedly transfer lines from one face of a board to another without error. It does exactly what I purchased it for and does it very well – that’s all I can ask.
