What’s a combination square?
First off… it’s a square to line up your work and check your angles.
There’s a little level to make sure your now off kilter.
Mark your 45 degree angle.
Measure the depth of something.
It’s a great ruler!
Plus there is a silver thingamabob on the end that you can pull out that’s a scribe point to make a mark in your material.
So, if you don’t have a combination square, maybe you need one! 🙂
I have this measurement on my board and I need a straight line from one end to the other. I could make a mark on both ends and use a ruler but this way is fast and more fun!
Sorry for the blurry picture. I was holding the square, pencil, camera and trying to push the button on the camera at the same time. I snapped three shots and this was the best one. 🙁
A perfectly measured straight line and fast every time.
