There is no tool quite so captivating as the 6" combination square. It may seem too small to be of practical use to the casual observer, but in the hands of an accomplished woodworker, it is a handy point of reference. Small enough to balance in precarious spots and hefty enough to stay put, you will find unexpected uses for this square. It is especially handy for finer woodworking applications such as cabinetry, interior finish where edges are smooth and true.
The Starrett 10H 6" Combination Square has a cast iron head, as opposed to their forged, hardened steel head. These combination squares are hefty and handsome tools. The milling on the blade is smooth, the matt finish on the square is solid, and the square is square.
What is the level of precision, you ask? Well, according to the Starrett catalog, "From a practical point of view, most Starrett mechanical-reading tools are more accurate than the normal eye can read."
