I always thought speedsquares made these obsolete; I bought this mainly to have a thin pry bar for inside liner steel. Since buying it though, I've found myself using it more than my speedsquare, simply because it is easier to access from my belt. It's an accurate tool, but it is made in India if that kind of thing bothers you.
