7" is the good all rounder and most popular size. If you are unsure which size to get, get this one.
10" also for general use, but more suited for larger sized furniture, stairs, building works etc, or if you want a Workshop Master square then perhaps and A+ or A++ accuracy 10" square is a good choice.
With a precision machined solid brass body infilled with beautiful and often rare timbers. It has an unbreakable hardened and ground Stainless Steel blade. These Try Squares have a point of difference unique to Vesper Tools - The Support Tab that holds up your butt. No - really it does! The body (butt) of the square sits up on the edge of your work as per the photos above and will not fall off until you click the spring loaded Stainless Steel tab out of the way for trying external corners with the square.
