        Q:Do they sell replacement parts for the 12" comb square? Mine fell off the sawhorse and the pin that locks the ruler and head together snapped. I have all the other parts. I just need that pin.

        Big defect
        Bought two of these and in both the pin the holds the ruler broke. Very disappointed

          Dont drop it.
          Worked well for a while and did its job as expected, but the clip that holds the ruler to the combination peice is very brittle and weak. Had a 2' drop once and it snapped instantly. As long as you never drop it even once from a small height it is a decent square, but if you do drop it, atleast you will have a nice metal 12in ruler.

              I almost cried when I dropped my 40 year old combination square and broke it. I said to myself, surely I will never be able to replace it with something made as well this this old unit. Boy was I wrong. I am happy, happy, happy.

                This is one of those rare tools that turned out to be even more useful than I expected. It's great, better than a larger square almost all the time for small projects. Not the one you'd use to build a house, of course, but for furniture and little things, it's nice to not be bumping into stuff. The spirit level component removes that extra step of making sure that your square corner is level or at the appropriate angle. What makes this tool even more than that, for me, is the fact that you can remove the 6in ruler from the level part. It's a heavy-duty piece of stainless steel and I've found I much prefer using it for drafting/drawing/sketching than any other 6in ruler I've ever used, including the standard Helix floppy metal ones. The weight helps it stay put on the paper and I don't worry about it bending when I don't want it to. The markings are really precise as well, and having it marked in 8ths & 16ths on one side and 16ths and 32nds on the other makes it much easier to use. For 8$ it's not even a tool you have to make an excuse for buying and you'll get a lot of utility out of it. Highly recommend! Only downside is I don't think it's made in the USA :( Not a dealbreaker though.
