I have the 12" version. It's straight as far as I can tell. The ends could be cut smoother, but these aren't meant for super professionals. They should be good enough for a lot of people.

I have this and I will not recommend it. They are pretty bad quality for woodworking. I will spend a little more and get PEC blemished or even Empire.
I don't want to crap all over the OPs deal, since it is a lower price, but I've been really disappointed with the quality of the Irwin measuring instruments I've bought recently. Even the Empire stuff seems poorly made. A poorly made measuring instrument, even if it's free, isn't a good deal and will likely end up costing you in the end.
$3 more gets you a speed square as well

PEC and Empire squares have worse ratings than the Irwin.

repped. thanks OP. lost my empire one and was too cheap to buy another one. I personally like Irwin tools, except I have noticed they've gone down in quality.

Yeah, same as Craftsman. Irwin is great if you wait for a good deal price. I have some Irwin wire cutters that work well, but I got those years ago.

I bought the 12" a month ago and returned it. It wasn't even close to square.

I love the speed square. I believe you can get them at Harbor freight as well.

SD loves its junk, as long as it's cheap junk. I mean look at the picture, you can literally see the burrs on the edges. The Harbor Freight 6" combo square is <$5, if you are comparing junk at least buy the cheapest junk.

I recently bought some Incra measuring products and won't be buying cheap measuring tools like this again. The extra cost is worth it compared to the headaches of things not going together (woodworking) like they should.

I went to lowe's and got swanson combi square. I think they're acceptable. The easy method to test is to mark a line then flip the square over and mark another line next to it. If the 2 lines are parallel then it is square. But I think next time I'm gonna invest in a better square for sure

I owned a window and door company. I always bought stainless squares for myself and my guys. Being stainless, the ruler lasts forever. They are usually smooth and durable enough. Be sure to check and inspect yours upon delivery and before using. Personally, I always went in person to check all measuring and marking tools before buying.
