Sadly, I’ve tried that. They have no stock on these. :(

I bought this set at The Woodworking Shows in the beginning of 2018. They were leftovers from the OneTime tool run, and when I bought mine they only had like eight left, if memory serves. I really didn’t like the price, but after handling I just couldn’t let them go. They’re my favorite squares now. Good luck finding a set!

May I ask exactly why you want this set in particular? Is there some special feature you like on these that you couldn’t compromise on and use the 851 or 1251 set?

Thanks for the question. I want this set primarily because the blade is stainless instead of aluminum, and I plan to use them for marking measurements a lot. The aluminum squares are much thicker, so unless you’re looking straight down on the measurement, you’re likely to make your mark inaccurately due to the parallax error. I’ve looked for other squares similar to this one, but there just doesn’t seem to be anything else out there that’s a close match to this one.

I agree Dan. Once I get them, they will be the only squares I use in my shop, and I will never part with them.

Can you not use the aluminum T Squares? Even though they’re thicker there’s no parallax because they have indexed holes for all the measurements just like the one you’re using.

Even the straight measuring rules they have are beveled on the edge as well.

I could, and I might still order one after I get the stainless squares. Like you mentioned, I like it that they have the indexed holes and beveled edges, but I think a traditional square would still be my go-to, especially since I can’t check for square on an interior corner with the T-squares. If I order a T-square, I would probably order one that’s 36” or something, so the functionality there would overlap less with the standard square. Thanks for the thoughts.

Have your say...
