Set of four Eng Squares No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

One of Blondie’s Christmas presents to me was this awesome set of squares.

They are an extremely accurate set of squares that are particularly valuable when I’m setting up my power tools.

It is boxed set of four Engineer’s Squares. There made by the engineering firm in India. They come a in a So/So box, however the box is not what I was interested in so I couldn’t take a star for that. They come wrapped in plastic with oil applied.

There on sale and I’m not sure you could get a better set for the price without moving into the big boys price tag.

The quality for all our Engineer’s Squares is guaranteed to meet, or exceed, the British Engineering Standard BS939 of ±0.0005” per linear inch for squareness. This set of four (2”, 3”, 4” and 6” sizes) also comes at a savings over the cost of the individual sizes. The 2 & 4” sizes are not sold separately. A 9” square is available separately.

While setting up my new 8 inch jointer these were invaluable! The jointer will be another review.

Here is a link if interested.

Good grief, in the U.S. we couldn’t make the box alone for that price!
Great find.

Thanks for the review, Ken.

I really do need to get some good squares and replace those plastic draftsman triangles.

They do look like Groz, but I’m not sure as it doesnt say that anywhere. Could be the same factory, who knows this day in age. I do feel there worth the money and very accurate though. Thx for the replys.

Covered/coated with oil, which may ruin a future finish? If they are precise enough, keep ‘em, just remove the oil and lacquer/wax them or something. Good score!

Don’t drop them, or you’ll need to have them checked and possibly recalibrated.

I bought a set of 4 made by PEC Tools (2, 3, 4 and 6 inches), with a guaranteed precision of 0.0006” over the length of the beam. Came with a certificate of inspection, even. I also have a set of their adjustable parallels that I set up router and drill press fences with (along with a set of calipers).

Pat Warner makes an aluminum try square set up so it will sit on the edge of a board without falling off, guaranteed accurate to within 0.0008” over the length of the beam, and will recalibrate them once for free.
