Squares

Blued Steel Try Squares, Mitre Squares and Adjustable Angle Squares.

Rosewood Try Squares to BS3322

The stocks are made of Rosewood, the blade from tempered, blued steel. They have a machined brass face for protection against damage and accuracy. The blade is secured by means of a brass diamond washer and steel rivet, or all brass round rivets.

All our try squares are manufactured to BS3322. Each square is tested for accuracy twice during manufacture and again immediately prior to despatch.

The squares are tested on both the inside and outside faces, our specification for the internal angle is twice as accurate as that specified in the British Standard, an accuracy better than 0.01mm/10mm blade length.

Rosewood Mitre square

As the name suggests, enables setting of 45° mitres. Made to the same specification as the try squares.

Rosewood Try & Mitre Square

This square combines the functions of both try & mitre squares.

A range of beech try squares is available, made to the same accuracy as above but only with the round brass rivets.

Large Marking / Measuring Tools

Our range of Large Marking / Measuring Tools is primarily for use with sheet materials or large projects.

The 18” & 24” Try Squares have rosewood stocks, blued spring steel blades, and are secured by five brass diamond washers with steel rivets, and a 3mm thick brass face plate. As these squares may be used on sheet material, at the toe of the stock is a small retractable blade, which, when out, sits on the edge of the sheet and stabilises the square.

The Adjustable Angle Square has one stock set at 90°, the other may be set at any angle and locked in place by a large brass, knurled thumbscrew. Both have brass wear strips, the blade length is 24”.
