Great bit of kit
22 Jun 2016
By
, Kirkcaldy, Fife.
" Bought this to help me square up the base of a summerhouse that I was building. I was in two minds but I'm really pleased I took the plunge.
This was invaluable for helping me square it off and also for joining pencil lines on wood I was cutting as it's a nice long straight edge.
It came in a handy carry case which helps protect it and I can see me using this for lots of jobs in future.
Would highly recommend.

" Does what you need, big enough for most jobs, accurate and folds away for convenience. Only used it for a flagging and decking job so far and the added assurance of accuracy was worth the purchase. Wish I'd bought this a lot sooner. 4 star for reliability as only used on one job but build quality suggests it should last if looked after. "

great size, does the job
19 Apr 2015

" I saw one similar to this in a builders merchants for over double the price. This one is easy to open and locks well into place and fits fully into a corner.
When not in use it folds and is stored in the fabric bag. Getting it back in the bag is a bit fiddly - it slides in as far as the carry strap which then snags, needing the bag to be upended and worked over the contents. A minor point but dropped a star.
Purchased to help set out the shuttering for a greenhouse base. "

" This square is brilliant, big enough for patios and decking of any size and then compacts down into a thin carry sleeve. Makes life a lot easier 5 STAR "

" Well I needed a big set square, and this one is BIG! Perfect for paneling and marking up large sheets of wood. Folds down and has a bag to store it in. 5 stars all the way except I have only used it 5 times so far, so I gave 4 for reliability... It looks well sturdy and I think it will last me a good long time. Great value! Recommended! "

Ignore the picture !
15 Sep 2014

" Works pretty well, a bit flexible so needs a bit of care in use, otherwise a good buy.
The pic is of a previous model where the frame corners protruded making it almost useless and impossible to get an acurate angle against a wall or floor.
The current model sensibly now has these trimmed off making it MUCH more useable ! "

Great! Apart from the case!
25 May 2012
By
, Kent UK
" Is good value for money - and good quality gear but the case is a joke - cheap and nasty and the brand label was all freyed. Which brand owner would advertise their own brand on such a tatty piece of cheap material?
Good experience apart from them failing to ship the item and then sending me two on the next day in the same batch. Which was good as I could compare both tatty cases and choose the best of the worst!
If the case improved this would make this item amazing - was a bit of a let-down. "
