Product Description

Milled from stainless steel plate stock, the body of our new CS-12v2 Combination Square is sure to inspire your best work—and those of your heirs—for generations to come.


Two sculpted legs separated by a black chrome web, this is one gorgeous tool that you will never want to loan to your pesky, cheap neighbor.


We lengthened both legs from their traditional design roots. The 45 degree leg is significantly longer to improve registration with your stock. This precision milled square head is equally at home with a 12”, 300mm, 18”, or 450mm blade.


Each square is individually calibrated to be within .002” (.05mm) of 90 degrees measured at the end of a fully extended 18” (450mm)blade. The 12" Imperial blades feature left-to-right and right-to-left reading 32nds and 16ths. These blades are similar to our current CS-6/DSS-6 blades because you can flip the square over and view the same scale on the same edge. The metric blades are etched in 1mm and .5 mm. These blades have the industry standard layout with similar scales on opposite edges.


All graduations are chemically etched and black filled against a satin chrome plated background—they are easy to read and you should have no difficulties with clarity. The 18 inch Imperial blade is unique—there is a metric centering rule on one side, and an Imperial centering rule on the other. Imperial grads in 1/32" are on the other two edges. Finding center with the metric blade is WAY easier than using Imperial. Second, with the blade locked at the 9” mark, the tool can be used as a hook rule but it also allows you to make yourself more familiar with metric equivalents. (The difficulty people have with metric is estimating—we know when something is approximately 3" long for example. Most don’t have a clue how to estimate 76 mm). The other benefits (divide 13-13/16” in thirds vs dividing 350.8 by 3) and other basic math operations that are a major source of error can be avoided with this blade. This is new, and we think you will find it incredibly useful—when we mocked up the prototype and played a bit, we knew, from our woodworking backgrounds that this was incredibly useful. The 450mm blade does not have a centering rule, only .5mm and 1mm grads.


Available in either Imperial or metric kits, (additional blades and heads could be ordered separately), precision has never been more fun. Our introductory offer included one body, one short blade (12" or 300mm) and a long blade (18” or 450mm).
