I like the idea of fixed reference squares for tool setup and building crosscut sleds etc. Adjustable squares are great for everyday project work, but I also need fixed squares for precisely 90 degree settings. In use, these squares have really fit the bill. I didn’t know if they’d be more shop art than anything else, but I pull them down on a daily basis. The case is a great way to store, display and protect them. They can be a little large for some tasks, and I still reach for my 12” Starrett adjustable square quite often. Buy I am pleased to report that these have been a great addition to the shop.

Would highly recommend.

I have been daring myself to pull the trigger on one of those. My birthday is coming up and my dawg knows how to order off the internet. I think I need to let him know what I want.

Thanks for posting

You can’t beat the price of simple engineering squares for accuracy (esp. the PEC “seconds” on Ebay). You can also get a set of three for next to nothing and get something that is dead accurate or very close.

The WPs have a slew of built in features that can be extremely useful however and I certainly would not complain if I had a few to use 8^)
My only problem is they sure be purdy and I tend to protect and rarely use items of this caliber.

Heck Petey, you deserve it!. Tell Fido to go fetch!

Buy once and cry once I guess.

I certainly use mine. I was making a huge new crosscut sled this weekend and the 2616 was just the ticket.

Absolutely essential for some of us particularly retentive woodworkers. I have multiple squares, but am confident of none of them when it absolutely positively really matters…the reason of course being…rough handling in a cluttered shop. Since my proclivity for knocking things off the workbench is likely to stay unchanged, I suspect I’ll pass…if only to save myself the agony of damaging perfection. ; )

Thanks for the review though!

So many questions:

Why are the nuts dead?

Did you kill the nuts with square?

Why use nuts on a precision square?

FWIW – If you have hopes of being a father in future, it is easier with live nuts.
