Tool Giveaway: OmniSquare

And the winner is… Gene! I’ve just sent him an email to claim his prize. Thanks for all the great comments! Stay tuned for this week’s giveaway on Friday!

In the August 2017 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine we reviewed the OmniSquare Multi-function Layout Tool, a clever tool made from lightweight aluminum. It functions as a try square, miter square, bevel square, T-square, combination square and (in a pinch) a compass. You can read our full review here, and visit the company’s website here.

Well, we have one, lightly used OmniSquare to give away (pictured above, and in the magazine!). I’ve had it on my desk for the past week, and it’s a lot of fun to play with – I can see why it’d be a great everyday carry kind of tool. Want a chance to win it? Simply post in the comment thread by July 25, 11:59 p.m. EDT, and I’ll choose one winner at random from among the commenters. (Winner to be announced Wednesday July, 26).

Good luck!

    Read the article. Looks like a great tool that you can’t believe you ever could work without once your start!

    Multipurpose tools are great for outdoors work, like the repairing/rebuilding of over a dozen 117 year old wooden storm windows on my house. Either way I have to do them. It wouldn’t hurt to have some hi-tech help. 😛

    It looks like an interesting tool to use and I think the best place for it would be in my work pants pocket or on my workbench, when not in my hand being used. 😉

    I’m interested. The Angle stop markings should add utility.
    Yes, I’d prefer a bright orange to make it easier to find on
    my bench.

    Since I can’t seem to master “every tool in its place,” I’ll settle for “a tool in every place!”

    Does look like it would be a valuable edition to the tool belt. I wish the coming soon video was there, i would have reviewed it to make a better comment. 😉
