Received this as a Christmas gift and I have to say it's the best one I've ever gotten. It's perfect for mixing dough and batters that a normal hand mixer can't handle. I can't wait to get some of the attachments and try them out too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TTWT Seems great.
Pythagoras sez: a^2 + b^2 = c^2. The corner-to-corner dimension of a 16 x 24 square should be 28-27.02/32 inches. Fortunately, Home Depot stocks tape measures right next to the framing squares. Probably a good idea to check that the legs match the tape measure first, but you can easily walk to the register knowing that the framing square you have selected is as square as you need it to be.

It's a square. It seems pretty square and doesn't seem to have any issues.

I wanted a fancy anodized aluminum square with easy to read markings. But more than that I wanted it to be truly square so I could use it in my shop. After testing countless anodized aluminum squares and finding not one that was truly square I stumbled across this at the Depot. The first one I picked up was dead-on square against my engineer's square. So I brought it home and tested it in my shop where it proved to be as square as one could expect for a rafter square, that is, dead-on over its length. The others may be within tolerances for framing, but for shop work I am sold on this one.
The only negatives are weight (heavier than aluminum), the markings are not painted so they are more difficult to read, and since it is steel it will rust over time. For these reasons, for outdoor framing work I'd stick with anodized aluminum.

I was in the store shopping for stainless steel sheet or stove backsplash tiles to store magnetic spice jars inside a pantry door. Options on the site were not present in the store, but walking by the yardsticks & such I decided to test if they would hold magnets. Aluminum ones didn't, this stainless one did!
I purchased two, and screwed them to the hollow-core wooden pantry door through the existing holes in the metal, using plastic washers because the holes were larger than my screws' heads. The shorter legs partially overlap at the top of the door.
The L-shape actually works better than what I had wanted, for less than sheet metal tiles and a mere fraction of the cost of products made for the purpose of magnetic spice storage.
If I need more space, I can add more rafter squares or yardsticks inside the first two.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bobb It's a steel rafter square. Duh!
It is shaped as a right angle. That 's why it is called a square. It has tables for calculating rafter lengths stamped on the side. That's why it is a "rafter square". They usually get replaced when they drop on concrete from 30' up or get run over by a truck. Otherwise, the one from my grandfather's tool box would still be serviceable.
