    Default LARGE 24" Combination Square (other than Starrett)

    Does anyone but Starrett offer up a large combinaiton square with centering head and protractor. (Starrett 8HC)
    The Starrett is readily availabe but $700 is far to spendy for a tool that won't see much use.

    The Starrett 8HC is your conventional combiation square rendered "writ large" not simply a standard set with a 24" blade

    Or to put that a differing way, the PEC item from VME is an ordinary sized item with a long "blade"

    Mr Oder

    That would be correct, the Starrett 8H head is close to 9" high. Blade is 24" x 1.5" x 0.10"

    I guess the real question is, are you doing precision carpentry, or is this for a different application? I don't know of a similar-scale and accuracy combination square that anyone else makes. Love to have one myself, but....
