I am glad you brought this up Bill.  I never thought about it and found this one that I will buy when I get a few extra $$

Only $16 to for a 4" and $22 for the 6" and I think both would work great.

It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

Another good source is Harry Epstein

Click on Closeouts, and click on PEC. There are usually some 4" or 6" double squares available for dirt cheap. I've had great luck with them.

My LV 6" double square is my constant companion.

I just don't need a 45* angle so frequently that I need it built in on a really expensive square. I mean, I do have a combo square that I use a lot, but the head is bigger and bulkier, so I use it only when my double square is too small for what I need.

And, when you do need it, a miter square (one of the more oxymoronic tool names around) is better anyway.
