Rated 5 out of 5 by from 12" size is a bit more convenient than 16" for most purposes. This review is of the "true blue" Empire 12" combination square. This is good value for the price. If you need super accuracy, Home Depot also sells one by General that is of very good quality, but you'll want to keep that one locked up except when you need the super accuracy. Use one of these for everyday stuff. For work-a-day use in situations where it will get dropped or banged around on a jobsite or in a production shop situation, this will do the job nicely. I bought the 16" size, and also 10 of the 12" size for my students to use. They stand up well to the use the kids give them and are still pretty accurate after 9 months of student use. They have been dropped but the mechanism has stayed square. The only tune up required is a quick pass with a file to clean up places where the dents interfere with laying the fence along the edge of a work piece. I like the 16" ruler but it is awkward to keep in a nail pouch or the side pocket of my Carhartts. In general I keep a 12" in my apron pocket and leave the 16" on the bench.

Short of a Starrett, these Empire squares will get the job done, and for a LOT less than the Starrett. I still check every square I buy, I ordered this one online, but wasn't disappointed. Maybe 1/64" 0ff at 10 inches, which is accurate enough for most woodworking projects, including cabinet work. One thing to keep in mind, is these combination squares (all brands) do "wear out" if you use them frequently, particularly if you overtighten the locking nut, or conversely, don't loosen it enough before sliding the rule.

The previous combination square that I had was made of plastic so it did succumb to temperature problems from the heat outside. But this new Empire combination square was just what the doctor ordered. I recently put to use to assemble my shed. I even used it to score shingles that had to be cut. All in all it was a good purchase, a good value and extremely useful .
