  • quality square set....

    well i have about had it with craftsman's squares, the 45/90 degree heads on the sliding ruler. These things refuse to stay square. i dont know what it is, but i have used others in the past and never had this problem before. so now it's time to spend the money and get a QUALITY one. i plus i would like to get one with the three accessories, the 45/90 head 45 degree head and the protractor. I dont believe johnson makes one? so now i am unceartin of something. i was looking at the starrett, which is probably the best you can get out there. or i can get one through my snap on dealer. snap on's are made by Central Tools. I was under the impression that central tools are junk? i inow sears carrys a bunch of items in the brown wrappers that they sell retty cheap. or is this a different maker i am thinking of. i guess my question is is the central a quality tool? signifigant difference between them and starrett? the advantage to getting it from my snap on man, i can pay it off weekly. i know my local rockler has the starrett and i believe the prices between the two were about the same.
    thanks ladies and gentlemen in advance for your reply

    There is Central Tools from Cranston RI (good stuff) Central Tools
    Then there is Harbor Freights Central Machinery made in China (generally POS but some good stuff)
    I have had great luck with my cheep (compared to Starrett) combo but if you want consistant accuracy Starrett is very good.
    The fully loaded Starrett is $142 at Lee Valley but you can get the square part for $62 and pick up the other parts if/when you need them.
    BTW you can get the fully loaded combo square at harbor freight for $19.99 (nuff said)
