DelVe Square

This little guy! Who's got one? Who loves it? I had one, and REALLY wanted to love it, but honestly I liked their 6" Carpenters Square (LINK) much more for all the tasks I was trying to use the DelVe Square for. I realize there are some "sneaky" little features in the DelVe Square, I just never put them to use much.

Any of you have one and love it?

I have it and it stays in the pocket of my apron for checking 90 degrees on the jointer and TS

Yea I did find it useful for checking square on those tools and the bandsaw. After selling it I ended up just reverting back to a small Starrett machinist square I previously used.

You seem to keep alot of stuff in your apron. Do you keep the framing square in there as well ? LOL.
Just jacking your strap, I keep a ton of stuff in my apron as well.
Speaking of aprons we should start an apron club.

That is the third tool I keep in my apron but A lot of times its not set for 90 degrees which make the delve nice.

Seriously there are soo many apron options. Perhaps there should be a "Shop Clothing" or "Shop Wear" club to cover all kinds of stuff people wear in the shop.

Two pencils (.03 and .05) , 6" stainless poalini rule, and dust collector remote in top pockets, delve and 4" Starrett in bottom pocket :) 

I use the lee valley apron but it is really hatched I have a brand new one but they changed the straps to cross over instead of just a neck loop which I hate so I need to do some sewing to fix it before I can use it.

Nah you can see its replacement behind that one...just need to fix the strap to my liking. I need to save those leather apron dollars for more Woodpeckers tools.

So I took a few minutes and made some minor alterations to the new apron. First changed the straps to a neck loop, then added two pencil slots, and finally opened the last slot up so the remote fits better. Not sure what that little slot was for it was on my old one as well. I really like the bottom pockets on this one better then the old as well. Unfortunately I didn't have any brown or green thread so black it is...with a little glue and saw dust no it won't bother me too much lol

Ha! A good ol Stanley? Nice. For the last couple years I have been all about the FastCap FlatBack (LINK). Thing is so nice for marking on boards since it lays perfectly flat on the work piece.
