The simple steel square is a common tool found in most toolboxes -- but are you getting the most out of yours?

Essential Guide to the Steel Square contains its promise in its subtitle: “How to Figure Everything Out with One Simple Tool, No Batteries Required.” The book provides how-to insights about using a regular or framing square for a raft of computing tasks for layout and measurement tasks. You’ll be able to quickly solve common construction problems involving angles, arcs, circles, & squares.

Ken Horner, the author of “Woodworkers' Essential Facts, Formulas and Short-Cuts,” once again offers practical advice, simple rules of thumb, and skill-building exercises, backed up by clear illustrations and diagrams. He also provides a fascinating history of the square, served up with his sincere and gleeful interest in the topic.
