Adjustable and accurate don’t have to be mutually exclusive when you talk about squares.  This adjustable-angle T-square from Bridge City Tool Works gives you both an accurate 90° angle and an adjustable angle in one beautiful and expensive package.

Use the AS-24 just like any other fixed-angle T-square for laying out your woodshop project — then when you need to layout an angle other than 90°, flip the square over, loosen the knurled knob, set the desired angle from 0 to 180°, and tighten the knob again.

Bridge City satin chrome-plates the 24″ long by 1-1/2″ wide by .080″ thick blade.  They glue and screw brass wear plates to both the fixed and adjustable solid rosewood handles. The fixed handle is accurate to ±.006″ over 24″, while the adjustable handle is held in place by a solid brass turned knob with a Brazilian kingwood inlay in the top.

If Bridge City Tool Works had this item in stock you’d pay $139, but you’ll have to wait until they make another batch.

    Have any of you toolmongers had much experience with Bridge City tools?
    They have always looked to mee to be aimed at the “yuppie” market – rather than serious tool users.
    I have no problem with paying a fair (read sometimes high) price if the tool is worth its salt. We give out Lie Nielsen block planes – as an example – and they are capable of cost effective good work.

    I prefer the Craftsman 48″ aluminum adjustable square. It’s only 30 bucks, is very accurate for anything from the standard 90 degree marks and out, and has that beautiful lifetime warranty in case you do manage to bend the heavy duty aluminum.

    I just can’t see paying $140 for something that looks nice with the wood inlay, but seems to do just about the same thing as the one for $30.

    I tend to agree. They make beautiful tools and I’ll bet they function well, but I don’t need my tools to have bling.

    Yeah Bridge City has sure put out a lot of “Pretty” tools lately. But i sure would like to have some more hands on time with thier tools to see if the bling can sing…….

    I suspect well-to-do tool collectors are their biggest customers. How much you want to bet most of these items are never used at all, especially since they are so pretty and expensive.
