Great Price, Great Quality, Super accurate. It comes as advertised so I really can't complain. If I could sugest any changes there would be only two. 1. I would have the top scale align with the handle. When you place it on a board, it should have a whole number lined up with the edge. 2. I would reduce the scale to at least 1/32 of an inch. 1/64th would be best.

Like I said, I got what was advertised and I am happy with it. It is a square that is actually......SQUARE! I was very happy with the delivery time. I ordered this one and the K53-14-N at the same time. Interestingly enough, they came in separate packages two days apart. I don't use any of my old squares after having bought these. You will like them, especially for the price.

This try square is a good size. Offset between the blade and stock are ok, but the stock could be thicker to better account for rounded edges on some pieces of stock or board. On some boards, the edges are rounded enough that the thinner stock doesn't sit on enough wood to get a good measurement.

I sent the first one back to Amazon because it was not square. The second one was much closer to square, so I kept it. The exchange went smoothly.

I purchased this to have around for quick marking when doing woodwork and was truly amazed at how accurate it was for a low price square.

Measures exactly 90 degrees, inside and out, with a digital angle finder. I can recommend this square.

I would give this a really low rating if it wasn't so cheap. It's not as nice as a normal Starrett tool, although I didn't really expect it to be at this price. My main gripe is that the combination 45 or 90 degree fence makes it really easy for the square to pivot when you are trying to get it to stay at 90 degrees. I know it is kind of designed this way on purpose but at the end of the day I almost never use this square because it isn't that useful as a square.

For the price and being a Starrett it is a very nice square. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a good square at a reasonable price.
