Out of stock. I'll be making more of these very popular double squares at some point in time.
These extremely popular and finely made Double Squares are loved by all who own one. When used for woodworking this simple and beautifully manufactured square with its blade kit will open up a higher level of work and convenience. Primarily used for dovetail or general joint cutting work for checking squareness, depth, bottoms of slots or mortices or half blind dovetails.
Also useful for many other things like setting up machines, setting hand tools, and it's so accurate you can use it to check other squares, the Vesper Double Square will most likely find a home in your pocket so its there in an instant as required.
Available in Inch or Metric blade lengths with laser marked (all done in house for quality) blades to suit.
The square bodies and the blades are made of 400 series SS and hardened to HRC 50-52 to be incredibly hardy in use. The use of hardened and precision ground stainless steel throughout a square like this is a world first we believe.
The center pin has an anti rotation mechanism to prevent it turning out of place when changing blades. The locking pin is also spring loaded to hold the blades still whilst the knurled lock nut is loose. The center pin can be pushed out and rotated 180 deg if you wish to have the ruler marking on the reverse side of the square.
We cannot emphasize the word PRECISION enough here. Blade ends are ground square, and the bodies are ground on all 7 faces meaning even the 45 Deg miter on the body there can be trusted. After surface grinding all edges are softened by hand, no mass finishing for these as the hand made method is the only way to maintain quality.
Blade widths are:
14mm wide for two larger blades.
4mm wide for the small blade.
2mm x 30mm long Mini Blade notched into a 4mm wide blade.
Known traditionally as a tool and die maker's square. In the early 2000's Robert Howard a Brisbane based woodworking teacher and artisan showed me the propriety version he'd been using for helping make beautiful dovetail joints and suggested Vesper Tools could make these. This was early days for Vesper Tools and the double squares are now in their 6th generation of improvements and absolutely impossible to beat for value, quality and accuracy.
