PEC Combination Square: 12 Inch
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 combination squares.
I use my PEC combination squares when I am traveling, when I need an adjustable blade, or when I am measuring a 45 degree angle. Its a "jack of all" squares for hand tool woodworking. I recommend and use the PEC 12 and 6 inch models. Here is why:
12 inch long blade.
4R Graduation scale: 1/8ths & 1/16ths, 1/32nds & 1/64ths
We stock the premium "hardened steel" body - not the cast steel body - it makes a big difference in accuracy over time.
Blades are fully hardened and tempered, and come with a durable, satin chrome finish.
The high contrast, micro fine graduations are well marked, and very easy to read.
Its a "Jack of all squares." Allows you to measure and mark 90 or 45 degrees, adjusts to configure for just about any situation, and remains very accurate.
If you can only have one square this combination square is what I recommend.
Square/miter head features level vial and hardened scribe.
Knurled adjustment knob is very easy to grip.
Made in the USA
The square is accurate and comfortable to hold. I really like the knurled adjusting nut. Ordering was flawless and received the square in reasonable time, even coming from Canada!
