    iGaging Bench Square Set IG-36-BS-47-AM

    iGaging are taking carpenter's squares to the next level

    Triangle Squares have been used by carpenters for 100 years. An essential tool in carpentry, they can be used as try squares, mitre squares, protractors, line scribers, and saw guides.  But carpenter squares tend to be too chunky for bench work such as joinery and furniture making.

    iGaging has taken on the challenge of developing Bench Squares that are as versatile as a Swiss Army Knife and as beautifully crafted as a Roy Underhill Revolving Windsor Chair.
    These new Bench Squares have a thin stainless-steel body and precise easy-to-read markings making them your go-to marking-out companions all over the workshop.

    The squares are CNC machined, laser engraved and loaded with great features including:

    • Thin 2mm stainless steel body
    • Blue anodised finish
    • Inch rules on both the square and base
    • 1 mm graduations
    • 1° angle graduations + 22.5° and 67.5°
    • Multiple-reference points for angles

    Of course, the right triangle of the Bench Square can be used to set your saw to a perfect 90° or 45° setting. But you can also stand the triangle on its straight edge and use the ruler markings to make height adjustments on the table saw and depth-of-cut adjustments on the router table.

    Use the base and straight edge to quickly check for squareness or to lay out a straight line 90° to an edge.

    You can easily layout a 45° mitre along the triangle's hypotenuse. The hypotenuse edge has lines marked in 1° increment allowing you to layout angled cuts by tilting the base at the pivot point to the desired angle.  There are also extra lines at 22.5° and 67.5° for octagonal construction. Plus, common angles are marked both on the hypotenuse and at the cutouts providing 2 references.

    With the base offsets you can scribe lines on adjoining faces as with a saddle square.  Eacxh of the squares has a ruler with drilled holes either every 2 mm along the straight edge.  With the point of a mechanical pencil in a hole, you can smoothly slide the square along an edge to layout lines parallel to the edge.

    Using the 45° cutouts in the squares you can quickly find the centre of round (or square) stock by aligning the inside of the base and the straight edge of the square with the edges of the round stock.  A mark along the 45° cutout will go through the round stock centre.  Do this twice so the lines cross to find the centre. 

    Set includes:

    • 100mm square
    • 175mm square

    Please note: These are metric. Pictures may display imperial.
