- iGAGING 6" Sliding Double Square from Eagle America
- Brand: iGAGING | Category: Measuring Tools
First off let me say that I have several Starrett and Brown & Sharpe squares, dividers and other layout tools. I have a 4” Starrett Double square that I love, but sometimes it is just too small. I had been looking for a matching 6” square. I saw this one on the Eagle America website recently and it happened to be on sale so I decided to take a chance an order one. I was fully expecting a cheap pot metal square with stamped steel blade. When I opened it up, I was very pleasantly suprised. The body of the square is cast iron and the blade is very nicely etched much the same as a Starrett. As far as I can tell, it is dead on square also. I am very pleased with this tool. For $34.99, much less expensive that a Starrett too. (BTW, when it was on sale last week, it was only $19.99). I am impressed with the quality of this tool. There may be other sources for these, but you can find them at www.eagleamerica.com.
