Only kidding but FYI you'll need 2 to make a square. This is just a triangle.

That's why it's "speed". Ain't nobody got time for 4 sides.

This and similar speed squares are starting to show up dirt cheap just about everywhere.

It's like some giant hopper-fed manufacturing machine has come online somewhere in China, and they can't get rid of these things fast enough.

Swansons are made in USA and nicer than your typical Chinese version.

Try looking in a dictionary for the definition of the word. Be careful as that information may hit you square in the forehead.

Looks like they fixed the product description (they removed the 2nd or 3rd bullet item that stated blue book was included). The blue book technically isn't included in the actual set. Some were lucky to have Lowe's associates to rip out blue book from another Swanson speed square during pickup.
