Walked absently through a thrift store and found 3 tools to take home. A nice marking gauge, a Great Neck block plane (with a Norris style adjuster), and a Starrett 18 inch combination square covered in rust and green paint.

They all cleaned up and work like a dream. The Starrett square is just as square as my 12 inch one after checking it.

Not bad for 12 whole dollars!
