265824 Bill Webber <ol2lrus@v...> 2018‑05‑14 Re: How big is your try square?

Adding a little more info for your help in my pursuit.  Quoting me, I 
said, " The Hilton tool chest has place for a try square that could have 
a blade up to 32-inches long.  The handle would look like the top one in 
this picture:"

What I didn't mention is the slot, in the tool box, for the blade of 
this square, is 1/4 inch wide. It was likely made of wood, methinks.  It 
might be a wooden try square with a handle 1 1/4 x 7/8 x up 10 inches 
long and a blade  that is 1/4 inch thick, up to 30-inches long and 2 1/2 
to 3-inches wide.  So, anyone seen anything like that?  Perhaps user 
made for something associated with pattern making?

Thanks for the responses so far.
