PEC Tools 4" Double Square

Recommended Posts

You bet it does! I even bought extra bolts cause I overtighten them and the lip that rides in the blade fails. The bolts fit my Starrett and General heads as well.

I sure is nice to be able to set 3 squares for marking long distances and leave them set for the whole job.

Right on!  I know where I'm getting a 24" blade then. :)

 

They also have decent prices on carbide carving burrs.  Think I'll grab a few of those too.

 

Any other hidden deals at Epsteins that I didn't turn over?

I don't use them.

 

I ordered a few things and discovered at the end that they're in KC, MO...so I had to pay tax. <_<  Amazon has me spoiled.

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!

Another thread turned me onto Epstien and I am glad all of you have had similar good results. Great prices and service on American made goods is always a plus when I am shopping !

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.
