Need a GOOD square?
This is nice, squares at a great price, but still guaranteed to be fully functional and accurate.

They have several different types of squares, rulers, drill gauges and sheet metal or wire gauges.

*Blemished/Cosmetic Second items have cosmetic imperfections*
Most have scratches, discoloration, small voids in the castings or other blemishes. In addition, the name brand on each blade has been ground off. The baked on finishes on the heads may be blue, black, or grey. We guarantee that the length and graduations will be accurate and that it will be a usable and fully-functional measuring tool. Instead of recycling the steel, they are sold at a fraction of the price.

These precision squares are manufactured in the USA by Products Engineering Corporation (PEC Tools), one of the last US precision measuring tool manufacturing companies. They are manufactured in accordance with the derived tolerances from the FEDERAL SPECIFICATION NO. GGG-S-656E 29 Jan 1996 and are guaranteed to be square to within 0.004" (four thousandths of an inch) over the length of the blade. They are perfect for project/part layout, machine set-up, determining level/plumb, or as a depth, height, or marking gauge. They have a hardened and tempered no-glare satin chrome finished steel blades. Blade markings are precision photo etched and then black filled for easy readability. The square cast iron head has an integrated spirit level. The protractor may be reversible or non-reversible and also has a built-in level. Squares come in a cardboard box.
