I have been wanting a small 6 inch blade combination square for some time now. Had my mind set on a starret and was gonna wait till after the dust collector is hooked up. But Sat i was in this local store something like harbor freight except more mechanical and cars, and i came across this little baby for $11.99. So i could not resist. (yeah website shows a dollar more)
Ordinarily i would not have posted about a tool like this. Except it deserves support.
At that price for an American made tool with a lifetime warranty and stated accuracy which checked out when i got it home I am happy i bought it.
In the USA you can find them at Borgs and all sorts just enter your zip on their site and they show you all the stockists in your area.
This is one switched on company in my view and they deserve support. Just look at how they are adapting.
Then look at what this approach has produced scroll down and look at the list
They used to be just a level company. Just look at the name Empire Level Mfg. That says it all.
Now how can they do it and others cannot. ????????
To me its all attitude and leadership.
Sorry Starret and Lee Valley but i saved myself a whopping $57.51 and got exactly the same accuracy and very good finish both on the body and blade. Blade is etched stainless. This is a handy apron square now i just need an apron.
