Price matched the speed square at HD, making it cost me about 2.67 before tax, thanks OP! Gotta save all those cents!

But is it really square? I'm tired of not-so-square made-in-china squares.

Good to know, thanx. I have an Empire try-square but didn't know that their plastic/polycast tools are also made-in-usa.

Wow, this is a great price for a speed square. I"m partial to aluminum speed squares, but for this price, how can you go wrong?

Good reminder of how useful a speed square is .

Not sure if ppl can visualize this but I've put a nut and bolt like "stop" in that angle void/space to create a "angle stop" for speed cutting with a circular saw if you're doing lots of cuts at a specific angle.
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!
