BORA Dares To Be Square!
A try square is a woodworking or a metal working tool used for marking and measuring material. The term “square” refers to the tool’s primary use of measuring material accuracy at a right angle; to “try a surface” is to check its straightness or correspondence to an adjoining surface. I find myself doing this alot when joining wood or using my block plane.
I use a try square to check wood cuts, score cut lines, check block plane edges, for router layouts and tool blade set ups for square as well as flatness.
TIP: I use the 12″ try square as a straight cut guide when cutting with a circular saw – its fast, reliable and easy to do.
The old woodworking saying, “straight , square, smooth” requires a try square!
The BORA Try Square is stock is constructed out of durable polyethylene and the blade is stainless steel. It has four molded angle guides: 22.5-, 45-, 67.5- and 90-degrees. These marks allow the user to verify layouts for complex angles. The Try Square also features a “stability ledge,” which keeps the ruler flat to the work surface for 90-degree layouts. I especially liked this feature.
I’ve never really used try squares as rulers but the BORA ruler has 1/16-inch and 1/32-inch etched graduations, that I found real easy-to-read. When testing these squares in the shop I took a liking to them. their light, durable and reliably square.
The BORA Try Squares have a lifetime warranty.
