I know what used stair gauges are, but never used them before. How would you use them in check a framing square for accuracy?

They basically just add a lip to the square. That way you can lay it on the surface of a board and have them hook the edge, rather than trying to have one leg down on the front edge of the board.

It would be a good idea to do the square check with them attached to make sure you can draw good lines square to an edge. Obviously for inside and outside square checking you can leave them off.
