I don't know if they make dividers, but if you decide to go new for squares, PEC brand is very good.  USA made, very accurate and yet much lower price than Starrett, at least the last time I looked.

They were right, I SHOULDN'T have tried it at home!

The used Starret combo squares I see for sale always seem pretty beat.  And the new ones are too rich for my blood.  I'm a little suspicious of Starrett quality nowadays, but I suppose it's easy enough to check a square.

For new, PEC stuff is solid and well within tolerances for woodworking.  Google Harry Epstein, they have "blems" of PEC stuff from time to time that are priced very aggressively.  Like this:
