A Combination Try Square is a versatile measuring tool used in woodworking and metalworking to ensure the accuracy of right angles and measure or check the squareness of edges and surfaces. It typically consists of a ruler or blade attached to a handle at a 90-degree angle, allowing for both linear measurements and the verification of perpendicular angles. The “combination” aspect often refers to additional features, such as a spirit level or an adjustable head, which enhances its functionality for various precision tasks.

Combination Try Square Uses

1. Checking Right Angles: The primary function of a Combination Try Square is to verify the accuracy of right angles in woodworking and metalworking projects. It ensures that corners are perfectly square, which is crucial for precise and well-fitted joints.
2. Marking and Measuring: The ruler or blade of the try square is often marked with measurements, allowing for accurate linear measurements. This is helpful for laying out and marking the dimensions of materials, guiding cuts, and ensuring consistency in project dimensions.
3. Setting Up Machinery: Woodworking and metalworking machinery often require precise setup to ensure accurate cuts and joints. A try square is used to align and adjust tools such as saw blades, drill presses, and milling machines to achieve proper angles and dimensions.
4. Checking Flatness: The try square can be used to check the flatness of surfaces. By placing the blade along a surface, it helps identify any irregularities or deviations from flatness.
5. Ensuring Parallelism: In addition to checking right angles, a Combination Try Square can be used to verify parallelism between surfaces. This is important for maintaining consistency and accuracy in projects where parallel lines are critical.
6. Scribing Lines: The try square can be employed to scribe or draw straight lines across a workpiece. This is useful for marking cut lines or reference points.
7. Adjustable Angle Measurements: Some Combination Try Squares come with an adjustable head, allowing users to set and lock angles other than 90 degrees. This feature expands the tool’s versatility for tasks that involve angles other than right angles.
8. Checking Miters: In woodworking, particularly when working with moldings or frames, a Combination Try Square can be used to check and ensure the accuracy of miter joints.
9. Quality Control: Professionals and craftsmen use try squares as part of quality control processes to ensure that finished products meet specific standards for accuracy and precision.

Safety Precautions

1. Mind the Sharp Edges:
• The blade of the try square can have sharp edges. Be cautious when handling the tool to avoid accidental cuts. Use gloves if necessary.
2. Secure the Workpiece:
• Ensure that the workpiece is securely clamped or held in place before using the Combination Try Square. This prevents movement and instability, reducing the risk of accidents.
3. Proper Tool Use:
• Use the try square for its intended purposes. Avoid using excessive force or using it as a lever, as this can lead to damage or breakage.
4. Watch for Pinch Points:
• Be aware of potential pinch points when adjusting or using the tool. Keep fingers and hands clear of moving parts to prevent injuries.
6. Clear Working Area:
• Keep your work area clean and organized to prevent tripping hazards. Ensure there are no obstacles or clutter that could lead to accidents.
7. Wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):
• Depending on the nature of the work, consider wearing appropriate PPE such as safety glasses or goggles to protect your eyes from debris.
8. Inspect the Tool:
• Before use, inspect the try square for any damage or defects. Ensure that the locking mechanisms are functioning correctly and that the tool is in good condition.
9. Use Caution on Power Tools:
• When using a Combination Try Square in conjunction with power tools, exercise caution. Keep the tool away from rotating blades and other moving parts.
10. Educate Yourself:
• Familiarize yourself with the specific features and functions of your Combination Try Square. Understanding how to use the tool correctly enhances safety.
11. Store Properly:
• When not in use, store the Combination Try Square in a designated place. Avoid leaving it in areas where it may be accidentally knocked off a workbench or shelf.
