Starrett Combination Square Review By: I.Ball

Category: Old Squares

Manufacturer: Starrett Co Ltd, Great Britain

Tool Type: Combination Square

Model No: 492

The Starrett combination square 492 has a sliding adjustable rule, a square stock and angle setters.

The Starrett combi square has a square stock which also has a 45 degree angle for mitre work, a spirit level bubble and a concealed marking pin.

The blade is marked out in inches up to 18 inches (there were probably other sizes available). There are various increments in the measurement markings depending on which edge you wish to use.

The rule is locked in place with the use of the locking pin by turning the knurled nut/wheel(s) on the respective stock(s).
