I don't know how this is possible.

In regards to the square, 2 points:

You can adjust that type of square if it isn't actually square. Use a punch and a hammer on the face of the tool in the corner where the 2 legs meet. Punch the inside of the corner to make the legs separate, and punch the outside of the corner to close them.

Buying a nice square doesn't have to be expensive and it doesn't have to be a starrett.

US made, factory blemish squares. Only cosmetic issues, and they are 100% square. Shipping is typically pricey from them, but if you order a few things at once it's not bad. I've got 2 squares from them.
