Quality European style machinist squares
« on: March 31, 2019, 02:30 PM »
I’ve been a fan of this kind of square for a long time but they’re hard to find in the states.

Now a new to me dealer in Missouri is importing a broad range of squares from the manufacturer (Kinex in the Czech Republic).
Taylor Tools

Go to measuring>squares>Machinist/engineer>Machinist try square with base

This style is one thick L shaped piece of precision steel with a flat bar screwed to the bottom so it can stand up steady or reference an edge. They also have thick one piece squares with knife edges and the two piece squares we are used to here.

Thanks for the link Michael, I was looking for one of these a while ago and all I could find was the small FastCap square.

Some nice quality stuff coming from the Czech Republic.

As of 10/17 I am out of the Dog business and pursuing other distractions. Thanks for a fun ride!
