Shinwa Carpenters Square 30 cm with 8 scales with stopper

The Shinwa Carpenters Square is an essential tool for ensuring maximum accuracy in the workshop. Paired with the included stopper, it can be converted into a sliding square.

The square has millimetre markings deeply etched on both sides and all edges. This makes measuring easier all sides can be used from a fixed position. The graduations are highly visible in black and red which makes reading effortless even in poor light.

The square is made in Japan with an engineering-level tolerance of 0.1/100mm on its squareness and 0.2mm maximum tolerance along its length. It is JIS B7534 standard compliant and its extremely good for a square of this size/type.
