Bridge City 9 inch (225mm) Mitre Square **
Of all the different wood joints you will make, one of the most difficult is one of the simplest – the miter joint.
Let’s say you are making a frame and your layout tool is off by 0.1mm. This little 0.1mm error multiplied by the eight cuts means that fourth corner now features a very noticeable 0.80mm gap (which is just over 1/32” of an inch), directly influencing the tightness of the joint and the appearance.
The answer? A precision miter square for highly accurate woodworking design, machine setup and block checking.
The Miter Square is accurate to ±0.025mm over the full length of the blade, inside and out. The accuracy of the 45° angle and the 135° angle formed by the steel blade and handle is within 0.036°, which helps ensure the accuracy of your projects.
The handle of the miter square consists of two L-shaped sections that sandwich the blade and forms a tight and accurate 45° with the handle. If the miter square takes a knock and you are concerned about the impact on accuracy, the mounting screws can be adjusted re-tightened to resume the original accuracy.
The blade, made of stainless-steel, has a smooth finish with superior hardness and is rust and wear resistant. It can therefore be used with a marking knife without fear of cutting into the square blade edge.
The finish of the stainless-steel blade is processed with a special PVD coating (Physical Vapor Deposition) which provides a stunning decorative finish with strong corrosion and wear resistance. The surface of the blade can also be marked with a pencil, leaving no fingerprints when wiped clean.
The hollow design of the handle makes it easy for the operator to grasp and hold in use, with a deliberate tactile and playful design element in the 'loose' orange insert. The surface of the miter square handle has matte finishing, which is both beautiful and maintenance free. One side of the handle is dark grey; the other side is silver. Its material of anodized aluminium alloy increases the hardness and wear resistance for extended tool life.
All this and available in three sizes. It even comes in a beautiful presentation box - the perfect gift idea!
