264731 David Nighswander <wishingstarfarm663@m...> 2018‑01‑13 Re: When Good Squares Go Bad
I would like to say that unless a tool is on its way to being repaired it's on
itscway out the door of my shop. I would be lying. Some of Grandpa's tools, from
both sides of the family, Dad's tools, and father in laws tools have pride of
place just because.
Then there is the framing square that hangs over the bench. I don't use it. It
looks like it was in the tool kit for Noah's boys to play with. It's there
because it has the full set of scales engraved in the sides of the blade.
It's the only one like that I have. Is it straight and square? Don't know. I
never checked. The Stanley from 1973 is still doing fine, and if I don't lend it
out, it should stay that way.

I keep wobbling close to the line but I don't think I crossed over to collector.
Yet.
