Veritas Saddle Square Review

This is a very simple tool that does exactly what it is supposed to do and it does it very well.  The square is just a simple aluminum extrusion that has been milled square.  At first glance it might be passed by as a solution without a problem; however, this is not the case. Saddle Square
After using the tool only a few times I've found it to be very handy.  While it isn't absolutely necessary it does make life a little easier.  I use this when transcribing lines across a corner as shown in the picture and as a small 90 degree square as well.  The device itself is as square as I can measure.  At the intersection of the face there is a relief groove that keeps the square from being thrown off due to irregularities on corners.  The outside has ridges that are an aid when handling the square.

The square costs around $9, that may seem a little high for a chunk of aluminum but after using it a while I consider it to be worth every penny.
