It looks excellent, please let us know what you think of it after a few uses.

Looks like it has etched markings. If it were printed only, it would surely wear the markings off, so that's a plus. Not going to replace my trusty 70 year old Stanley though. An aside: I use a 6 inch combo square as often as the 12 inch, and think most woodworkers would find the short model very handy.

how tough will it be when you need to slide the rule to make adjustments?

Can you deactivate the magnets or are you forced to fight them during adjustments?
How about fine adjustments??

Not putting it down--just curious.

I don't think the magnets will give him much fight when doing woodworking projects.

I have been using for a while now it is very convenient and locks well. Much better for switching between ruler and square. Its my go to marking tool now. Magnets hold position well. The rule slides well and easy to adjust to desired position. It's accurate and very good price point. If you were like me and square was dropped to many times and did want to spend for another Starrett . Highly recommend.

That's not a bad price for an accurate combo square with stainless blade. And I see it has a belt holster. That was the main reason why I didn't pack one when I was carpentering, I couldn't keep it in a pouch.

Just the metal hooks for the hammer. Can't remember the brand but it wasn't that cheap as I recall. Going down ladders had trouble keeping them in at times too. Would have been the same with a combo square.
