Today’s CNC machining can produce incredibly accurate results. This new line of squares is an example of that. They are guaranteed to be accurate to .001″ over their entire length, and are also guaranteed to stay that way. I looked at the Precision Woodworking T-Square, the Precision Aluminum Square and the Mini Square and found them all to be as accurate as claimed. But aluminum is fragile – using a marking knife or bumping it on a table saw top can damage these tools’ reference edges.
