Swanson Speed Square and Big 12 Bundle is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swanson Speed Square and Big 12 Bundle It’s hard to believe that after doing all forms of DIY carpentry over the last 50+ years, I finally discovered the utility of the Swanson Speed Square. And besides their ability to act as a try square, miter square, protractor, and line scriber, my favorite is its use the 12-incher as a power hand saw guide, especially on hard to keep square 2x4’s end-cuts (see attached photos). I clamp a piece of scrap to act as “parallel standoff” from the 2x4 for the Swanson Square’s integral “fence” to give my saw a true running start on end cuts. I prefer this orientation as the integral fence edge resists the force forward making the cut. However, the square can be reversed if that’s what one prefers, and then no scrap or clamp is required. The smaller 7 inch square I found handy for inside work with baseboard and other moldings. Altogether, high quality aluminum tools with clear easy to read and use markings.

First and foremost what you want in a square is for it to be square itself. We have all seen the ones that charge an arm and a leg and promise to be square, but for me I need something that I can bang around my shop and still find it to be square and do the job it is meant to do. As you can see in my pictures the first thing I did with these is to test them out Are the surfaces flat, are the corners really at 90 degrees. Answer to both, YES! Made of sturdy metal and and the markings clear and easy to read and if that was not enough they include a book on the many uses for a square and how to do it. I am sure I am going to have many happy years using this set!

This is a review of Swanson's Model # SW1201K two-pack; comes with "blue book". Pros: Pewter-like matte finish makes it easier to read than Empire's version Made in America. Eased edges make it more comfortable to handle. All the markings, slots you'll ever need. If this is your first 'speed square' and if you don't find what you need in the all-English, well-illustrated 44-pg booklet, visit their website. You're likely to use the 7" mostly 'cause it fits in the toolbelt; the larger one tends to get 'lost' after laying out "Pete" [the master] or you'll leave it with the sawhorses ... might be a good idea to flame it with fluorescent paint. Cons 20% heavier than competition [some may see this as a plus]; the larger weight in at 1 lb 5 oz!]. The larger speed square wasn't as accurate as I would have hoped [90.2 vs 90] No part of it is magnetic being 100% aluminum

These are deeply engraved as well as black markings to make it really easy to read. Both of these work great for making straight cuts on 2x4. The large one allows me to hold the 2x4 though the hole whereas the smaller one my hand fits perfectly over the triangle. Often I find myself needing to make accurate cuts and my chop saw is not available. The best part about these are the heavy duty quality and all the markings. The book that comes with it describes how to use the markings in great detail. While I am a weekend DIY I do find myself needing to figure things out, now with this new tool and the booklet I hope to make a few less "practice" cuts. These are great tools to have, they are called a speed square for a reason and they are much more coinvinient then the large framing squares which of course have their place.

And I have to say I think these are still about as good as any out there. You can get some others that have good features like being lighter and maybe made out of something that does not get as hot in the sun. But if you want a solid square that is really easy to read these are still the best. I used to have great vision but these days my eyes are not the best. I found these to be the easiest to read by far. I really like the etched numbers that are very bold with the black markings. Sure with age they wear a bit but you’ll be able to read this thing easy for a long time. And if you have never read it the little book that comes with these is worth a quick read. The only drawback to these is they do get hot when left sitting on a slab in the sun. But that is not exactly a killer drawback.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Swanson Speed Square and Big 12 Bundle will be extremely handy for me. They are heavy gauge aluminum with good, dark, easy to see, gradation markings. They can be used as a protractor for practically any angles, and can also be used as a saw guide. The 7 in. Speed Square will be especially useful. And importantly, this set comes with excellent instructions for those of us who are not proficient in this type of work. I am not a carpenter, and used to always have help around who were. My brother used to be a framing carpenter and both of my sons are builders, but they all live in different cities now, leaving me on my own for those projects. While I don’t have any projects right now, there are some coming up, and these squares will be a real asset. It seems that, in our area, most builders now use pre-fab trusses for roofing, but there are some jobs like dormers or hips and valleys where they have to fabricate on site. My upcoming projects are not big enough to use pre-fab trusses, so I need all the help I can get, and these squares will be invaluable. They are smaller, and much handier than using the larger framing squares. I can even use them for quick angle marking in metal fabrication. Very good tools to have in the shop.

A great feature of this set is that the two sizes of squares fit both small and large width lumber easily, and facilitates drawing markups as needed. Much better than a framing square to draw markups. Deep grooves in the tools combined with the darkening of the grooves makes for better reading of degrees. Great improvement over the box store plastic versions of these items. Pivot point for drawing angles is rigid and will last much longer than plastic versions. Use the larger square with circular saw to execute cuts better than getting an additional tool. Used mostly to markup for ripping boards to size.

This Speed Square and Big 12 Bundle is exactly the kind of tool I like on site. It is rugged heavy gauge aluminum with easy to read black lettering and numbering. I am pretty careful with my tools, but this is one the doesn't seem to mind being banged around or scratched. I use it mainly for checking and setting square inside corners and as a tri-square for marking cuts at the miter box. It also functions well as a circular saw guide for relatively short cuts. The "Little Blue Book" has a wealth of information on laying out roof and stairway.
