I would have given this square 1 star but the rule was actually very square to the head. The issue was with the rule itself. The top of the rule was 12 inches in length as it was supposed to be. The bottom of the rule was 11 and 15/16" in length as it was NOT supposed to be. Each end of the bottom of the rule was 1/32" shorter than it should be, making it not square at each end. This difference in length creates all sorts of issues as anyone that knows anything about combination squares would know. This should have been the simple thing to get right in the manufacturing process. I really wanted this square to be worthy of 5 stars because it was made in the USA and because it was reasonably priced.
If you are looking for a reasonably priced square that is very close to being square, this is it. If you are looking for a reasonably priced square that you can use to make measurement marks at the end of the rule, this is NOT it. I purchased the E255 6" rule, had the same problem, and left the same review for it.
I have contacted Empire by email telling them about this issue and am currently awaiting their response.
(1) There is a rotational wiggle room between the head and the blade. Holding the head firmly while the set screw is loosened, you can move the blade up and down so that it goes into and out of perfect 90 degrees. This means that you have to make the conscious effort to tighten the set screw only after pushing the blade into the head so that it makes 90 degrees. Irritating, but for me, not worth the extra ninety bucks for one that doesn't do this.
(2) There is plenty of friction when sliding the head back and forth along the blade. The motion makes the tool feel a bit more like its price tag. The surfaces show machining lines.. I suspect that the head is made of zinc, but that is a guess (could be aluminum, definitely not stainless steel, steel, or iron).
I recommend this tool.
This Brand and model provides reliable accuracy for general carpentry. At this price, it's a solid value.

Had issues using this to adjust my miter saw. When comparing to other tools, this one is not 90-degrees! Read morePublished 17 days ago by Acka
The handle is curved so you can hold it with one hand, thumb on the brass and index finger on ruler. This makes it much easier to measure small parts by resting it on the square.Published 1 month ago by Frison B Alexander
I had the same issue as another reviewer - the ends of the ruler (blade) are not square with the side edges. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Richard F.
