Introduction: Mini Engineers Square From Steel Angle

Make your own Mini engineers square from steel angle,

Using a hacksaw angle grinder or metal cut of saw you can make your own engineers square with just 3 cuts. Your cuts don't even have to be strait as the critical edge is the inside face of the angle

Step 1: Cutting..

Use a hacksaw, angle grinder or cut off saw to cut down one side of a piece of steel angle then cut the whole section off as show in the images.

Step 2: Making the Blade and Finishing It.

To make the blade I cut one part of with a hacksaw then filed the stock down then I took it over to the oil stone and cleaned everything up.

Be safe and have fun !

    There's one problem with this. Angle is not exactly square. Would suffice in general use though.

    You can use metal shelf brackets as squares. Just make sure they are square, with a real square before!
