Most of my measuring tools are Starrett. I had a small square that wasn't Starrett. It was another "quality" brand. I hated it because it wouldn't lock in place and would move when I wasn't expecting it to. I've been looking for a replacement square for some time. I was about to purchase a Starrett square when I was notified about Bridge City having a sale. Not only is this square of utmost quality, it is a work of art. Using it is a joy. Additionally being an artist myself, I always like to support small businesses.
This combination square is magnificent. There are so many regular details that are elegantly made but really have no bearing on whether or not you can measure something but that’s the mark of quality…unnecessary luxury. From the machining of the blade to the satin finish that you can write on to the edges of the blade that look sharp but are as smooth as silk then the design of the slider which even as far as the groove itself is different from all the rest. This squares blade slides effortlessly and easy the easiest to lock down all while having absolutely zero play. I couldn’t be more impressed.
