You could describe many of Bridge City Tool Works’ tools as “tool pr0n,” but does their limited-edition multi-square belong in that category? Certainly — but in addition to being beautiful and expensive, this well-made tool packs a lot of features into its 4.125″ tall, .875″ wide, and .73″ thick body. After looking at the realistic renderings of the multi-square and reading about it on their site, you’ll feel the need to hold it in your hands.
Bridge City Tool Works mills the multi-square from solid stainless steel to produce an extremely precise and accurate tool. Unfolding the tool reveals three different saddle squares — an 8:1 dovetail, a 6:1 dovetail, and a regular saddle square. Peering further into the tool, you’ll find the cam-lock sliding T-bevel which can function as a try-square or a double square. As you slide the multi-square into your breast pocket you’ll notice its integral clip keeps it securely in place.
They claim this commemorative tool will only be made this year, and they’ll set the ship date to be sometime before Thanksgiving so you can get the multi-square in time for the holidays. Unless you’re a paid member of the Founder’s Circle you’re gonna shell out $290 for this tool pr0n.
