Product Description

Made of machined stainless steel, this 6" double square is a must have. Double Squares are very practical on their own, but this one has a built in Saddle Square for transferring lines around outside corners. Beautifully finished, this square will last for generations without any tarnishing or rust.


The Ruler is easy to read Satin Chrome Plated steel, with only 1/16" and 1/32" graduations. The Metric has 1mm and .5mm increments. The English Metric has both.


This tool has been a favorite for all who already have it. Peruse photos of the various woodworking magazines and inevitably you will see the DSS-6 close by. The ruler itself is identical to our CS-6 combination square. Flipping the square from right to left gives you the same graduations...you don't end up with 1/8"s as you would with ordinary 4r rulers.


We currently do not have any DSS-6 Metric rulers. The good news is that we have plenty of CS-6 Metric rulers. These rulers are identical, minus the fact that the CS-6 rulers do not have the DSS-6 branding. If you would like a CS-6 Metric ruler to go with your DSS-6 please contact us.


We modified the design of the hinge with this go around. Instead of the saddle have 2 "tongues" like in the pictures above, there will be just one. This will help create fewer defective parts for us. Drilling a hole of that size, to that accuracy, is difficult in stainless steel.

    Overall

    While visiting a friends shop I found this wonderful layout tool. The double square and saddle square are probably the two most used layout tools in my shop. Combining both into the same tool makes this a goto device. Make no mistake, this is not just a well made tool. This is a heirloom quality precision device that easily justifies the price. From the design and shape of the binding wheel to the operation of the saddle square hinge, this tool is perfect in every way. Every surface is perfectly machined and every movement operates smoothly with just the right amount of resistance. At 61 years old and a lifetime of handling tools, I'm not easily impressed. This tool instantly went on my must have list. At probably three times the price of a good quality double square, I can see why this item is on a limited run basis. If I hadn't held one I wouldn't have understood the value. After using it, I WANT ONE!! (Posted on 5/2/14)
