Truing Up a Combination Square
If your combo square isn't as accurate as you'd like, don't buy a new one. It's relatively simple to square it up!
In the original video, How Square Is Your Square, I showed you how to check whether a combination square is tuned up accurately. That left a lot of people wondering, if my square is out of square… can I fix it?
In this video, I’ll show you how to tune up even a cheap, bargain-bin square. Tuning a square like this is a matter of carefully filing or sanding down the registration nubs inside the slot the ruler sits in.
You can learn more about how to use a combination square in this article from this month’s issue of Fine Woodworking Magazine.
