    A square that is not 'square'
    While the quality of the wood and metal and the joint is excellent, the accuracy of this tool is sorely lacking. I performed a test with this square and found that the angle is not exactly 90 degrees. The test can and must be performed by everyone for any square they own. Here's how: Put the wood side of the square against a flat edge of a board and mark the perpendicular lines using the metal portion. Then flip the wood edge to the other side (Left to right or right to left) and see if the perpendicular edge of the square will line up with the perpendicular lines you drew. I own two other squares, One a combination square by Johnson and another a Swanson level square and both of them pass this test.
