Starrett combination square blades are available in inch, millimeter, and
inch/millimeter markings, from 4" to 48".
The OP might also consider going to the Enco website and look at their
offerings. Personally, I think the level of accuracy offered by
Starrett is overkill, so I use Mitutoyo. Mitutoyo costs quite a bit
less than Starrett and offers accuracy just as good when you consider
the nature of woodworking.
No, I haven't. I don't work in a machine shop and never have. The
guys I know who do or did all look down their noses at Mitutoyo has
being 2nd rate. What do I know?
Well, What I know is that when I use their (Mitutoyo) instruments they
help make tight well fitting projects. My machines are accurately set
up with them too. So I'm a happy camper and spent less than if I'd
bought Starrett or Browne & Sharpe. I don't know if B&S is still
made. It's just a name on some tooling in the tool crib at my
And Ford fans look down their noses at Chevys.
I have a number of Mitutoyo micrometers and calipers that are in daily,
professional, use. Have been for over twenty years. They just went through
the routine calibration check today. In perfect shape. I do own a few
Starrett tools too. Never had a problem with them either. Each manufacturer
has tools in their line that I wouldn't own (Mitutoyo telescoping gages
suck, Starrett dial calipers are rough and don't last) but both make good
ones too. Just like any other tool manufacturer, neither Starrett of
Mitutoyo do everything right. Yes, Brown and Sharp is still around though
their line is rather small and they are no longer American made. Made mostly
in Switzerland though and their quality is high. Their dial calipers are
made by Etalon and are the finest I have ever used.
