these combination squares from Empire are great. they have found a specialy place in my shop also. they are very inexpensive at around 15$ for the 12” square and 7% for the 6” square. they have a lifetime warranty and are guaranteed flat and square to .oo1”. it may not be a Starret or anything but it is a great square for the price. i like the big 12” one but since i got the smaller 6” one i have found myself reaching for that one more often. it feels very nice in your hand and is lightweight but at the same time rugged. it is great for laying out mortises and a lot of layout work as it is easy to control. also in a handy place there is a small scratch awl as can be seen in the third picture. overall these are great squares and i would recommend both of them to anyone looking for a combination square.
