An extremely accurate set of squares that are particularly valuable in setting up power tools. The boxed set of four Engineer's Squares, made by the engineering firm we use in India, is a convenient way to acquire a range of the most useful sizes and get a very nice fitted wood storage box at the same time.

The quality for all our Engineer's Squares is guaranteed to meet, or exceed, the British Engineering Standard BS939 of ±0.0005" per linear inch for squareness. This set of four (2", 3", 4" and 6" sizes) also comes at a savings over the cost of the individual sizes. The 2 & 4" sizes are not sold separately.

  • Layout

    Calvin, 7/24/2015 These squares make layout a pleasure. Very well made and laser square. I really did put a laser on these and all where dead square. Want a dead on table saw or band saw fence.... get these.
  • Cheap Cheap

    Simon, 7/1/2015 When checked against my "Mitutoyo" square, three of the four were not. Which defeats the purpose of both the name and use as an accurate tool. The box packing is also too loose, allowing these to fall out of place and knocking against each other damaging them. These are going back...

  • Good Square

    Don Osborne, 3/4/2015 Checked the squares against masters and they were very accurate. The only problem is the box. It needs more padding in the lid to keep the squares in place. They could fall out of place and get dinged up. I solved the problem with a shop towel.
  • These Will Do The Job

    Ben, 2/4/2015 These squares are what I expected. You get what you pay for and these are inexpensive. The finish is good. I can't tell if they are welded and then machined or cast and machined. Checking them with each other and with my Starrett combination square they are all the same and for my comparison are square. The box issue is a real issue and given previous complaints I expected it to be fixed. Simply put there is a gap in the foam filling between the fitted nesting foam and the lid foam which should hold them in their respective spaces. Adding a 1/4 foam sheet will do the trick although Garret Wade should request that the manufacturer fix it in the next batch they order.

  • Great Squares For The Price

    Rick, 1/29/2015 I have been searching for affordable engineers squares, and saw this in a catalog. I figured for the price, I would give them a shot. It turned out to be a good decision. The are heavy, well-made and very, very accurate. I use them to square up saw blades to the fence and/or table. They are dead on. I would highly recommend these over far more expensive ones.
  • Good Squares

    Paul, 1/9/2015 I received these squares for Christmas this year, they were an item I asked for use keeping my saws in tune. They won't sit out all the time so the storage box seemed like a great idea. Really the box is my only issue with the set, once placed in the storage case the set fails to remain in place when the box is manipulated to be put away. I'm afraid the squares are going to dinged up as they slide all over the place inside the storage box.

  • Good Squares

    Jugnu Jethi, 8/24/2014 Good quality squares. I have a certified grade b bs939 square which I used to check these squares. These squares were found to be quite accurate. The box is also well made.
  • Square Deal For Squares

    George Kendall, 6/9/2014 The case and the squares are beautiful! Almost too pretty to use. These are the finest I have ever used. I take pride in owning them.
  • Squares

    Tis Himself, 5/7/2014 Beautifully made.
  • Great Set-Up Squares

    Jerry Helfrich, 3/22/2014 I build a lot of small jewelry boxes and these squares are great for checking the sides for square. I also bought the 12 combo square. I checked each against the others and they're all dead on. Great addition to my woodworking tool box."
  • Woodworker

    Bud W., 3/10/2014 Squares are just right for small woodworking projects and came in a very nicely made storage box.
  • Great for their intended usage

    L.P. Smith-Black, 2/12/2014 I worked in a machine shop for 17 years of my professional life and while I'm certain these squares would not stand up to tool crib" standards, the set I received will suffice any chore I'll ever put them to quite proudly including keeping my shop machinery well adjusted and in good working order, which is largely what I purchased them for to begin with."
  • Accurate & Well Finished

    Robert Seddon, 7/6/2013 Accurate ground surfaces are easy to work with and useful for many tasks in the machine shop or for woodworking - model makers. Box they come in is well made and protective, a pleasure to own and use.
  • Squares

    Paul Rottschaefer, 1/2/2013 All the squares were very good quality, except the smallest one. Poor grinding and burrs left on the blade, dents on the edge of the handle.

  • GW Engineers Square Set

    Ron Alterman, 1/1/2013 Decent set. Not great quality, but seem to be accurate enough.
  • Engineers Squares

    John, 1/1/2013 Great tools, The only issue was that one of the squares didn't fit into the slot it had. Other than that very durable and dependable.
  • Quality Products

Dealing with Garrett Wade I am fully confident that the item I order will match the description exactly as written additionally all products offered by Garrett Wade will be of the highest quality and well worth the price.
  • Engineer Squares

    Sharon Conover, 12/29/2012 Nice heavy quality and the box keeps them organized and without damage
  • Good Buy

    ddweller, 12/14/2010 Good deal- the fit and finish are good- the box is fair- could be a touch more robust. The squares were all wrapped in plastic w/grease. Definitely worth it.
  • model construction

    Tom Kerr, 12/9/2010 I love these squares because of the precision and quality of construction. I have always wondered about how square" other squares actually where. Some that I have purchased in the past have proven to be not exactly square. I have a lot of confidence in the engineer's is critical when building r/c model airplanes that everything be built "true". These squares are one of my most prized possessions in my shop. "
  • Great accuracy and value

    Todd Forman, 12/7/2010 I bought a 6 machinist's square from G.W. several years ago, and was thrilled with the accuracy, until I stored it improperly and bent the blade. I searched for a replacement for several months, and kept coming back to this set. When I finally ordered it, I was really happy with the accuracy of these squares. I tested them all against my Starret, and all were dead on. Woodworking is my hobby, and I'm a stickler for accurate set up. (My time in the shop is limited, so I hate wasting it on mistakes). This set of squares is perfect for setting up my stationary and hand held power tools, as well as for checking stock. I've looked everywhere, and I couldn't find a comperable set at a better price. "
  • It's a Square Deal!

    KevinT., 4/15/2009 I purchased this set of squares a while back and I am glad I did. When they arrived I checked them for accuracy and was happy to find they were right on. For the price they are a good purchase for the budget minded woodworker. The only thing that would make them better is if they had measurements etched in the blades of each square. With that said they are still a square deal in my opinion and would recommend them other woodworkers who are looking for a basic set of engineer's squares but don't want to spend a bundle.
