PEC Solid Square: 4 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 solid squares.
PEC's Solid squares are just that - solid metal, no moving parts, and VERY accurate. I have and use several different sizes of solid squares in order to match the square to the job at hand; the price of these squares permits this luxury!
4 inch long blade.
Made from high quality harden tool steel.
Has true right angles; both inside and out.
Beams and blades are precision ground and hardened.
Length of blade is measured from inner edge of beam to the end of the blade.
I have squares that were handed down from my grandfather and combo squares I bought; even a Starrett Combo square which I trust, but when it comes to squaring the blade in your table saw you want that dead on. This square agrees with my Starrett so I know both are right. When I opened the box I grabbed the square and ran downstairs to check my table saw blade and it was off. The zero clearance insert was a bit high on one corner and with this square I was able to get it back to 90 degrees.
checked out squareness and was pleased with the results not sure i would every need any higher tolerance and the increase in cost for next level does not seem worth it not belittling the next level up products but they are quite a jump on price
its exactly what I needed, handling a speed square for fine details was too bulky and I knew there had to be some good alternative out there. Was happy to see the tool was made in the states. I wouldnt mind measuring marks on the blade but its fine without. perfect for marking small pieces. not sure how lee valley's engineer squares would measure up to this but I dont need to know. fast shipping and delievery from Rob Cosman. looking forward to dealing with you guys in the future.
