New Gets

After years of coveting, I finally bought myself a Precision Double Square from Lee Valley.

I have larger ones in the shop, so this time I chose the small 4" version. It's a gem, and is my new favourite square, It's pocket-sized, light, and according to my calipers, accurate in every dimension. The numbers and graduations are etched and ink-filled, and are easily readable against the satin finished rule. The knurled knob is a little awkward, but it works well, and is spring loaded to provide resistance to the blade while being adjusted.

It's graduated in four scales, 32nds and 64ths,

and 8ths and 16ths.

It's so pretty even my Wife likes it.
