PEC Tools 4" Double Square

Thought I'd mention that I got my Epstein stuff and I'm as happy as everyone else has been.  I got the 24" blade for my Starrett, and while I was at it I went ahead and got a whole other 12" combo square because they're so ridiculously cheap.  The head has a little cavity on the side and I guess that's its blemish.  Zero effect on function.  The knurled knob is smooth and locks the blade down dead square.  I'm so impressed with the quality to cost ratio that I'm wondering if I'll ever buy Starrett again.  Seriously. :)

 

Oh, and the carbide burrs I got are top-notch, too.  Very cleanly machined in the good ol' USA.  They only had sizes up to half inch, but I got a flame tip, an egg and a ball for something like ten bucks a piece...solid carbide.  Get outta here!

This review reminded me to order a second double square (liked the first one so much, on wdwerker's rec). HEpstien sent me an email it had been shipped within a few hours of ordering it. Impressive for a small company. Seems like it takes 4-5 days before rockler gets something out the door.

I reach for the PEC more than I do the Starrett.  Its smoother to use and (don't let my PEC's hear this) I won't feel so bad if I drop them. :D.  Seriously though, I have a few PEC tools and they are the equal of their pricier counter parts.  A 4" double square is almost indispensable to the way I work.
