Good square
30 Mar 2013
By
, Fife
"I have had this square for years and it has seen much abuse too.
Use it for general DIY, kitchen fitting, fencing, flooring - everything really.
Never used the spirit level so i have no idea what its like but for marking 45° and 90° angles its great.
The scriber in the bottom of the square also comes in handy when marking out steel or aluminium.
Very good product, will last for another few years i suspect"

"I've not had the same issues as the last reviewer - I found this great for measuing and squaring - it's also taken lots of abuse and been used for all sort of other jobs that don't involve measuring or angles!"

could be better
6 Sep 2014
By
, enfield
"bought it on discount at 9.99 so guess can not complaint much, but the biggest surprise was that the "pin" was a "push in" and not screwed into the combination square. so that will go missing within minutes on the job. if paid a full price then it would definitely be returned. apart from pin the level appears to be very slightly not straight when measured against a proper level so will mean will not be relied on in the future. I really got it mainly for the 90 degree and the ruler, so that seems ok. but really would expect better quality from Stanley branded product."

Cutting corners- end of rule?
19 Apr 2013
By
, London
"I bought the Stanley model which is four and a half times dearer than others, thinking that it would be top quality - it ain't. Compared with my old and reliable Stanley, this seems to be a cheaply produced tool - the ruler has been poorly chopped off and left rough and unfinished. I estimate that it could be as much as 1mm out over its short length. Had I used this on the job I've just done, I could have been nearly two centimetres out by the end of the run. Is this another example of a once reliable company relying on its name and boosting profits and bonuses by cutting corners? One thing's for sure I won't be cutting any using this tool - maybe Stanley's presuming too much and their rule is coming to rough and nasty end."

Not square Square
2 Sep 2013
By
, Surrey, Plumber
"I needed a square with a longer edge for cutting worktops more accurately. I got a more expensive Stanley Combination square because I wanted a good quality product. Very disappointed. It is not actually square. Dray a line turn it over and there 5mm difference at the end. Miles out. Borrowed a square from a colleague to finish the job. Then back for a refund!"

not square, square
22 Jun 2013
By
, sheffield
"Not fit for use if doing accurate work, 2mm out of square in 150mm.
The built in square on my disposable saw is more accurate than this.
These are a waste of money unless all you use it for is marking up first fix.
If you want a good, accurate square, pony up for the rabone model, it costs twice as much but the build quality is far better and it's actually square."

Useless Junk
29 Apr 2009
By
, Norfolk
"Firstly, I had a die cast super cheap job which was perfectly square, unfortunately it shattered under light usage.
I bought this as I've needed a decent square for some time, this however, is far from decent. Over a length of 10 inches it is between 1.5 and 3mm out of square depending on how I 'jiggle' the rule when I tighten the thumb screw. The only good thing about it is that I know it won't shatter.
If I can buy a square for 1 pound which is perfect, why is a 20 pound one so far out? Pitiful.
This is fine for marking bits of 2"x2", or marking lines using the rule, for what I bought it for, making cabinets, it's terrible. This has already caused more problems than it's solved. Avoid!
This product has succesfully reinforced my opinion that Stanley is good for nothing more than the knives which carry their name."
