I am sure they are accurate enough for setting up woodworking
machines.

That said, machinests squares are not generally well-balanced
for woodworking. The short leg is usually very heavy and
the long thin and much lighter. This makes them awkwardly
balanced and easier to drop if used for various tasks like
laying out joints.

For woodworking, a small 4” adjustable sliding square is
extremely useful. These are probably my my used hand tools.
