Whenever possible, makers should use a square sized for the task. You would never use a framing square for making small boxes nor would you use a pocket square to frame a house.
Our new TS-1 v2 Try Square is a small square that will fit in your apron pocket and measures 5” heel to toe. The stainless steel blade is glass bead -blasted and free of graduations for a reason – you can easily write on it with a pencil. This allows you to “customize” the markings for any given project. It is a great time saver once you become accustomed to the practice. Two other points regarding the blade are noteworthy; there is an 8:1 cutout for dovetail layout and the corners are rounded.
The handle is milled from stainless steel and features our “positive grip” cut-out making the tool almost impossible to drop. The accuracy of the square is plus or minus 0.002” over the length of the blade, inside and out.
The TS-1v2 is a compelling square that will not only allow you to build with confidence but enjoy the tool’s presence as well.
NOTE: The stainless steel version of the TS-1v2 was only made once and had a limited production run of 300 units.
