Squares

Measuring squares come in a variety of options and functions.

Sliding T-Bevel - The movable blade allows you to copy an angle and transfer it onto moldings, lumber, or other materials. It won't measure the angle, but that doesn't matter—a match is what you're looking for. You can use a sliding T-bevel together with a compass to bisect angles for mitering,

Drywall Square - With its 4-foot blade, a drywall square is ideal for laying out cut lines on standard-size sheets of plywood, drywall, and other board materials. You can also use it as a guide (fence) when cutting drywall.

Try Square - Cabinetmakers like this fixed square for checking corners and edges, but for most carpentry tasks, a combination square is more versatile.

Framing Square - Consisting of a long blade and shorter, narrower tongue, this L-shaped square comes in handy when marking up wide boards and sheet stock or checking their squareness. It's also good for laying out rafters and stair stringers. Ruler increments (in 1⁄8, 1⁄10, 1⁄12, and 1⁄16 inch) are printed on both the inside and outside edges; be careful to read the correct side and measurement.

Speed Square - The base of this compact right triangle has a flange that you can butt against a workpiece edge, allowing you to draw a perfectly square cut line or 45-degree miter, and to use the square as a fence for crosscutting. The diagonal edge has markings for laying out rafter, roof trim, and stair angles.

Combination Square - Good for laying out lines for ripping, crosscutting, mitering, and making notches. The head, with fences at 90 and 45 degrees, slides along the blade and locks, allowing you to transfer a distance accurately and hold it while you draw a line with a pencil.
