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 stainless steel blade is glass bead-blasted and free of graduations; Bridge City claims this is to enable you to write on it with a pencil. This may be a practical solution for repeat marking, if you can bring yourself to try it.
The blade also features a 1:8 cutout for dovetail layout. The stock is anodised aluminium with a “positive grip” cutout. The stock is a contrasting silver and black with a distinctive anodised orange trim. The accuracy of the square is plus or minus 0.05mm over the length of the blade, inside and out. If at any time the square meets with an accidental fall, the blade can be adjusted to return it to its precise original setting.
