Questions & Answers

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 ridge on the end of that pin (srew) that goes into the slot in the ruler. look into the head unit and notice it's orientation and slide the ruler in. The other way you can do it is to remove the knurled nut and the spring under it, slide the pin out the opposite direction, put the ridge in the slot on the ruler and carefully slide both back into the head together. Don't force it, a little wiggle here and there should be all you need to do if anything. I attached a picture of the ruler slid halfway in. Make sure that when you put the knurled nut back on that the spring goes into the recess at the bottom of it.

12 in. Combination Square is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 256.
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.

It worked at first but I only used it a handful of times before the ruler would no longer go back in as it appears the pin inside is broken. Now I just have a ruler, which it isn't even good for that since the lines are very faint and small so it is extremely hard to read if you're over 40.

The pin that clamps the scale seems beefy. The blue color makes it stand out so it's easy to find. For an inexpensive combination square, this is head and shoulders over any of the cheap ones from anywhere else. I would buy again.

Good product ,seems to be accurate, although I doubt that it will last as long as my 1908 Stanley,that had deeply engraved measurement lines that held up to years of abrasion.
