- Starrett 4-Inch Double Square, 12-Inch Combination Square
- Brand: Starrett | Category: Measuring Tools
This past Christmas I left a subtle hint for my wife in the form of printed web sites showing both the Starrett 4” double square and the Starrett 12” combination square. I was hoping to get either one as a present. My wonderful wife got me both. I already had some cheap, big box store squares. The rules never slid smoothly and sometimes the locking screw wouldn’t hold the rule in position.
The difference with the Starrett squares is dramatic. The thumb screws lock down securely. I know the squares are true and the graduations are easy to read. Well, except the 1/64th graduations. But that is due to my needing to put on my reading glasses to see things that small. The 4” square is particularly handy, residing in my shop apron pocket for instant access. These tools are like purchasing a high quality knife for the kitchen; you only spend the money once and the tools last a lifetime.
