Handy Layout Square

Squaring a line around an edge is no easy task. It takes a bright light, good eyes and a steady hand—or a clever device such as the Combination 3D Square from M-Powered Tools. It has a large saddle square built right in.

The 3D Square also has a short, folding bevel gauge and an attachment for drawing lines parallel to an edge. The square’s main blade is 9" long and is set at precisely 90° (within 1/100° over 9", according to M-Power). You can reset the blade if you happen to drop the square and knock it out of alignment.
