          A:  It is steel so kinda heavy, but sturdy. Since you most likely won't be holding it over head the sturdiness out ways any weight issues.

                  It's Square!
                  I checked the angle with a universal vernier bevel protractor, and it's square within 5 minutes of arc. So why only 4 stars? The edges are straight, but just a little rough.

                    I moved, and somewhere along the line, I lost my old one. I am restoring a very old home, where nothing is square, but on the occasion, this comes in handy. It is nice and stiff. Has a glaze on it to prevent rust. MADE IN USA.

                    I bought this square to mark 18 in tile. A speed square would work better since the tile's edge was uneven.

                    Works well, but the finish doesn't prevent rust. I got this for laying out sub-floors in an old house remodel. The square worked well for it's job and then was hung in the shop. After two years a lot of rust has penetrated the finish and makes some areas hard to read. See the photo---those are not scratches since the item was used but not abused. The surface is still smooth and even.

                      Excellent framing square
                      The Empire 16 in. x 24 in. Steel Framing Square is one tough square. The square is steel which has some weight to stay in place and not shift. The markings are stamped and protected with an epoxy finish to protect from rust. The coating leaves a shiny smooth covering which reflects light and blackening the marks would have helped visibility. I use it mostly as a guide for setting cuts so the stamped markings are not as important for me, but the numbers are large and can be read just fine in good lighting. What I need in a square is true alignment and in this regard my Empire square is solidly accurate. Its a good standard framing square at a great price.

                      Much better than Aluminum
                      I much prefer steel framing squares to aluminum. Because these can be subject to a little abuse here and there, they can go out of square. There are a few tricks to bring it back into square, but they won't work with aluminum because of the nature of the material. I really like that this is epoxy coated. It will keep the rust at bay, but everything is still every to read, and the edges are still flat enough to register a pencil or marking knife up against. I don't see myself needing another framing square unless I lose this one. Terrific product.

                      Good basic product
                      Very good value, the markings are reasonably easy to read. Drawbacks are weight, lack of ink in the stamped characters to help legibility and lack of rafter length tables. Fine tool for a small remodeling project.

                      It's very square.
                      It's very square, one of the squarest squares I've had. I've been using it for several weeks and it is still square. Also very quiet. To summarize, it's a quiet, square, square.
