Perfect for my small wood projects!
I don’t work with really wide pieces of wood, so this trim square is perfect for my small wood projects!! It’s very easy to use and compact and easy to store. 4 1/2” is usually the widest the wood I work with gets so this fits my needs perfectly.

    No square enough for (fine) woodworking
    Should have listened to the other review. I wanted an apron / small layout square for woodworking. This square feels great in the hand but when i got it home I stuck it against a PEC engineers square and it was clearly well out of square (see photo). This thing might be good enough for framing, but it would likely introduce errors even in trim / finish carpentry. If you’re doing furniture dont’t even consider it.

      I bought this square primarily for a quick woodworking layout tool, and it's excellent for that. I've checked the accuracy against several other squares and it's dead-on. The increment notches come in handy for scribing, and the machined edge is much better than other squares with cheaper stamped edges.

        One of the best squares I have ever seen for the money. I checked it for being squar as well as checked it to my machinist square. Like the scribing points and the thickness of the aluminum. Also like the size for keeping in my pocket around the shop.

        Great little tool. Quality built with durable material. Lightly etched writing clearly shows readings. Offset base great for fast measurments. Allows for fast line scribing at desired measurments. Fits nicely into pocket for quick access.

        This 4 1/2" trim square from Milwaukee is a great addition to my wood shop. I had a chance to use it on a recent project and it was the perfect side to mark some trim i was cutting for a border. Its the typical red color as all Milwaukee tools so its easy to find after you put it down unlike my tape measure or pencil. I would definitely recommend this square.

        I have been a builder remodeler for 49 years, and as such I have many opportunities to use a tool like this MILWAUKEE 4-1/2 IN. TRIM SQUARE. Almost anyone in the trades uses a speed square, and these trim squares are just another step forward, especially for smaller work where the larger squares are not required. These Milwaukee squares are of very high quality, and fit the need for precise work.
