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).

"Just stumbled across your website and an absolute treasure trove of information. I was recently given an old Stanley 110 block plane and wanted to know more about it. Your website told me everything I needed to know.

But there is so much more to read. I forsee me spending a lot of time just reading page after page. I can appreciate how much time this will have taken to put together.

I just wanted to let you know that your hard work is appreciated."
