This month in Furniture & Cabinetmaking we’re teaming up with Axminster Tools to offer you the chance to win a set of marking tools from Bridge City Tool Works!
The TS-1.5v2 Try Square is a medium size square and one that woodworkers making boxes, drawers and similar projects will greatly appreciate. With a blade length of 165mm from heel to toe, it falls exactly between the Bridge City TS-1v2 and the TS-2v2 squares. The blade also features a 1:8 cutout for dovetail layout. The accuracy of the square is plus or minus 0.05mm over the length of the blade, inside and out.
Constructed in the same way and complementing the Bridge City try squares, this mitre square offers outstanding accuracy and styling. The blade is satin finished hard stainless steel, 31mm wide, 226mm long and an impressive 1.5mm thick. It is perfect for laying out a joint with a marking knife. The aluminium stock is a contrasting silver and black with a distinctive anodised orange trim. The stock measures 122mm by 34mm and 13mm thick. The handy size makes the MS-1.5v2 mitre square perfect for marking out or checking mitres. These are set and checked before leaving the factory, to an accuracy of 0.025mm or less.
This tool will make the most of the space in your tool chest. The MT-1 combines the following functions: a 200mm sliding bevel, a 1:8 dovetail saddle square, a 1:6 dovetail saddle square and regular saddle square. An effective camlock holds the stainless steel blade firmly in position. The blade has a 1:8 dovetail cutout and a pencil notch on the tip that allows you to use the MT-1 to draw a line parallel to an edge. The stock, precisely milled from aircraft aluminium, is 112mm long, 22mm wide and 25mm thick at its widest point.
