PEC Double Square
I "discovered" PEC tools of California and was so impressed I bought some of their stuff to put it to the test of daily use. I am still impressed and I now recommend PEC's premium line of layout tools and squares.
This is the PEC double square. It is an extremely useful little square and I have one in my apron pocket all the time. The adjustable blade combined with two 90 degree faces on the body make this little guy perfect for measuring both inside and outside corners for square, checking an edge for square, or any time I need to mark a short measurement. Here is why:
We stock the premium "hardened steel" versions - not the cast versions.
6 inch blade is fully hardened, tempered, and comes with a durable, satin chrome finish.
The high contrast, micro fine graduations are well marked, and very easy to read.
Allows you to measure and mark 90 degrees, blade adjusts to left or right side of the body, and remains very accurate.
Knurled adjustment knob is very easy to grip.
Graduation scale - 4R: 8ths & 16ths, 32nds & 64ths
Made in the USA
I wanted a small adjustable square that would be easy to carry around. The PEC double square fits the bill. Although the fit and finish may not be as nice as the more expensive alternative, this square is accurate and easy to read. I was a bit disappointed, in that the product description says the square has a 6 inch blade when in fact it 4 inches. However a closer inspection of the photos would have shown me the real size.
Perfect size for shop apron, well built, accurate
I am very happy with the double square . It is well made and a delight to use.
Fit & finish is not as fine as Starrett. I bought some PEC tools because Rob speaks highly of them. I’m too used to Starrett, so I gave my PEC tools to an apprentice.
well made square perfect size for the job
