If you look closely you'll notice the stainless steel blades are inlaid into the bases, not at the exact center, but offset so that one side is a perfect quarter inch and the other side is a perfect three-eighths.
Now when you’re working with 3/4" stock you can instantly find the exact center or divide it in perfect thirds. Lay out mortise and tenon joints effortlessly. Locate dowel pin and fastener locations in seconds. This bit of genius design was the brainchild of Jamestown, NC professional woodworker Tom DelVecchio. The original DelVe milled aluminum square has been one of our most popular OneTIME Tools. In this new version, we’ve woven those original features into a larger, extremely durable square with a stainless steel blade and even added a couple new features.
The Offset Base is Just the Beginning. Both squares are precision drilled every eighth of an inch along the 90° edge. Drop the point of a mechanical pencil in one of the holes and slide the DelVe square along the edge of your stock. You’ll get perfectly located scribe lines for your layout work.
The hypotenuse edge is calibrated in one-degree increments for quick and accurate lay out of angled cuts. We dropped in extra lines at 22.5° and 67.5° to make octagonal construction a breeze.
More Measureless Marking. On the 6" model, the central cut outs give you precise 1/2", 3/4" and 1" references from the square edge and the hypotenuse. On the 3-1/2" model, every cutout edge is a perfect half inch. We also milled down one end of the base to give you 1/4", 3/8", 1/2" and 3/4" setup block references for saw blade, drill press and router bit depth of cut adjustments. There’s even a hole milled to perfectly locate a self-centering drill bit at the center of a 3/4" edge.
Two Sizes…Tough Choice. The 3-1/2" DelVe Square begs to be slipped into your shop apron pocket. The 6" model might not be quite as convenient to carry around, but it covers a lot more ground when you’re building larger furniture and cabinetry. Of course, we’ve made it easy not to decide by offering a special $10 savings on the pair. Whether you buy one or the pair, your DelVe Squares will come in a fitted case, to keep them safe when you’re out of the shop.
