For those that love Starrett

I'm in the same boat. A few months ago I decided I wanted a good combo square set with all the bells and whistles. Had my heart set on a Starrett. 

 

Then I found some and decided I didn't need one to be "that good". 

 

I ended with a $30 or $40 set from Grizzly. Which I am very happy with btw

Over the years I have bought a 6" combination square and a 12" combination. I have the 45 and protractor head for the 12" but that is all I own. Oh, I did buy a pair of dial vernier calipers with fractions that were oddly cheap for Starrett. I have had a pair of mitutoyo digitals for years but for woodworking I prefer dial.

 

I did not even know Grizzly had calipers. Is it Grizzly brand?

It was the Grizzly combo square set:IMG_6964.JPG.a70234e7e32ab5c17ea3861800ea9b5c.JPG

 

Nice set for $36 bucks. I just couldn't stomach $250 for a Starrett.
