Product Description

Just as a speed square is an essential layout tool for carpenters and framers, these small squares are similar in both form and function but are appropriately sized for laying out joinery and other common workshop tasks.

Available individually and as a set including 35mm, 60mm and 85mm squares – each a compact, lightweight tool that fits into a pocket, comes to hand nicely, and is easy to handle for precise work on smaller stock.

Machined from solid aluminium with a matte anodised surface, they are laser etched on both sides with measurements in 1 millimetre increments. Each also has a protractor scale on one edge, with angles shown in 10° increments on the smallest square, in 5° increments on the 60mm square, and in 1° increments on the largest model.

The set of three lets you choose the size best suited to the job. For example, to strike a line close to the edge of a workpiece, it’s easy to set the smallest square over a tape measure to position your mark accurately in both axes at once. The 60mm size, although ideally sized for working with 1 × 2 stock, is certainly not limited to projects on that scale – once you’re in the habit of using it, you may well be surprised at how advantageous it is in many other situations where you might typically use a larger square. Similarly, the largest size isn’t just for larger work; with its protractor scale marked in finer increments, it also affords greater precision in angular measurement.

All three have bases that extend 1/8" from one side of the blade and 1/4" on the other – convenient references that, among other uses, give you an easy way to mark mortices centred on 1/2" and 3/4" stock, respectively. The 1/8" side also permits reliable registration on very thin stock where the benchtop might otherwise obstruct a deeper fence.

Where the base meets the blade, the inside corners are slightly relieved to ensure that the square seats well over saw whiskers.

Simple and practical, these are tools you will reach for often. 

Made in Canada.
