I am amazed you're allowed to buy a saw without proof that you own one of these. This simple right angle is difference between tables that rest on four legs and those that float on three. It is the hard edge that is always perfect (you cannot chip or damage it) and it is small and light enough that it should follow you everywhere. If that weren't enough, there are markings and measurements on its face (including a hole to mark 2x4 widths) that have common board thickness and sizes. If you're only an occasional builder, you are freed from having to remember them (more convenient than you realize). Something like a workmate toolbench: you didn't know how much you needed it until you use it.

If you have ever used the 7" Speed Square or a framing square, you will find this to be the best of both worlds.
All the features of the Speed Square, but bigger. All the utility of the framing square but smaller.
I use it a lot for cutting 1x12 boards. And making backside pitch cuts on plywood.

The difference between this and the dollar or two cheaper model is that all of the marks and numbers on this are painted black. Which means if you are going to be using this for more than drawing a straight line across a 2x8 the contrasting numbers will speed you up significantly. Just thought I'd throw this out in addition to all the other wonderful things that have been said about this great tool.

Every carpenter I know carries one of these in his belt, yet few of them actually use it for framing calculations- they use larger squares for that. So what's the attraction? Simple. By bracing the raised edge along a piece of wood, you can make pefectly square cuts with a circular saw on framing lumber. It's like have an accurate miterbox with you at the top of a ladder. A must for the homeowner who doesn't have twenty years of practice making cuts with a framing saw.

As goes the case of many great tools, they don't always stay in your possession.
The latest version with the scribe marks is awesome. The Big 12 is even more awesome.
Enough said by my counterparts below. It is found on every jobsite in America.

Swanson rules when it comes to the speed square. I have this products big brother the 12'' model also and cant imagine life without one.These things are bomb proof. In an everyday carpentry kind of way this tool will last forever.It's an aluminum calculator you can use as a saw guide.on any given day you can walk up to a job site and see these squares hard at work and you know if the industry has adopted it you can rest assured it has proven itself over and over again.Now get out there and square something up.

As a woodworker I'm used to using highly precise Starrett 13A Double Square for layouts and table/miter/radial arm saws for cross-cuts; however for general construction those tools are completely impractical. I would never imagine putting my double square through the abuse I put this thing through in just one months time.

Obviously it is used for basic tasks like laying out lines for anytype of cuts, it also has an easy to mark line for average 2x4 stud height. I didn't need to use any of the roofing tools 'cause my roof was 45 deg.

What really made it shine was the cutting. After marking your cut I used it as a guide for my circular saw for lumber and for my scoring knife for cutting several hundred boards of hardiplank siding. With that many cuts I had many times where the knife would skip out of the line and cut up the tool, much preferred than cutting up my hand and the tool doesn't notice beyond leaving a light mark on the surface (well dozen marks by now!) which matter not when using it.

I love the size over the smaller and larger versions because it fits perfect in my toolbelt but is still good for marking multiples.

Size: Metric (25cm) Verified Purchase
This metric speed square is great for people who are building in areas where the metric system is used. It is larger in size than the standard 6" speed square, so it is difficult to fit into a tool belt without it hanging out. However, the larger size means that it does not have to be flipped over when scribing lines on wood that is wider than 6".
The common and hip val rise/run values are based upon units of 10 and not 12, as is the case with the 6" squares. In other words, the value for 45 degrees is common 10, as opposed to common 12 for the 6" model. This makes sense because the metric system is based upon units of 10.
The notches for scribing lines every 1/2 centimeter from 2 to 14 centimeters are very useful, and the construction is a very thick but lightweight cast aluminum, about 1/8" (3mm) thick. All the markings are recessed into the aluminum, so you don't have to worry about them wearing off and dissappearing. The book that comes with it is the same as the book that comes with the 6" speed square, with the exception that the values are converted to the metric system and the hip and common values are explained using rise/run values based upon units of 10.
I'm really glad that I bought this Swanson metric speed square, and would buy a smaller 15cm (6") metric square if they made one so that it would fit perfectly into my tool belt.
