Blade install

Just bought this and can’t get the measuring back onto the unit. Tried loosening the screw, even took the screw completely off. Can’t get ithe blade back on no way no how. Can you advise?
Asked by: Jdc
There is a groove on one side of the ruler that lines up with a tab on the pressure tension knob. In addition, if you gently press down on the pressure tension knob it will allow the ruler to slide back and forth a little easier.

12 in. Combination Square is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 272.
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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Added this tool to my large variety or levels, squares, and measures by Empire. While tightening the blade (quite lightly by hand) the small metal piece that locks it in place snapped in half, rendering the tool useless. The blade had tons of play and was slipping in the holder up until the point the metal snapped.

My old combination square was probably 30 years old or more and I decided that I needed a replacement. The Empire combination square is of great quality and you can't say that they don't make them like they use to, as Empire does.
