BORA Magnetic Combination Square
BORA, a product division of Affinity Tool Works, introduces its new Magnetic Combination Square hand tool. Featuring a magnetic locking system and durable, quality construction, the Combination Square is a professional-grade tool, suitable for a variety of applications including carpentry, general construction and remodeling, woodworking, and do-it-yourself projects.
What I liked the most about the BORA Magnetic Combination Square was how smooth-sliding the ruler was. Easier and faster to adjust than similar comb0 squares with locking thumbscrew designs, the system enhances efficiency, while ensuring precise alignment and accuracy.
A magnetic locking system holds the ruler in place with rare earth magnet. The rare earth magnet ensures a secure, reliable hold. When using the BORA square I did notice that if I pulled the square hard against a surface I was able to dislodge the ruler from the square. Not the end of the world especially since I was trying to test the strength of the magnet. However, it could be an annoyance to some.
The BORA Magnetic Combination Square is built both durable for job sites and home workshops, as well as designed to provide professional results every time. Featuring hardened, cast-zinc construction, the body is rugged and corrosion-resistant. The 12-inch reversible ruler is durable stainless-steel, and finished with easy-to-read graduations in both 1/16- and 1/32-inch increments.
The BORA Magnetic Combination Square is machined on five sides, and all edges are milled. A magnetically-held hardened scribe and reference vial are also included.
The BORA Magnetic Combination Square is the perfect tool for the workshop. I can see it being a go to tool for joint layout, machine setup/checking, and level/plumb determination. It can also be used as a height, depth or marking gauge.
