    Screw breaks. They know it, they haven't fixed it. Don't buy it.

    Comments about Pinnacle 12" Combination Square 3pc :

    I purchased this square (2-piece, plus the 24" rule) several years ago as a second square, and used it a few times. So it's been in the box. My other square disappeared at a job site, and I unboxed the Pinnacle to find that the clamp screw was broken. What a surprise. Seeing the other reviews with the same problem, it seems common: will Woodcraft offer replacement clamp screws?

    Comments about Pinnacle 12" Combination Square 3pc :

    I love this square, but the clamping screw on mine also broke after a drop. I stole the one from the center finding piece, but that one eventually broke, too. You can find replacement screws on ebay (Brown and Sharpe clamp screw) from Zoro. I bought some and they fit - hopefully they last longer than the ones that come with it.

    05/05/2013 Ears on the Adjustment Screw made of soft metal as mentioned elsewhere. After less than 12 months the ears pull off making the tool only usefull as a ruler. I have a 30 year old Stanley that is still working but oxidize (rust) hard to visulize numbers. I hope Pinnacle/WOODCRAFT can replace the Adjustment Screw if not I would not recommend purchaing this tool!

    Comments about Pinnacle 12" Combination Square 3pc :

    I agree with part of Balarila's review. It's a fine tool, but the hook end to the thumbscrew has broken clean off on mine as well. No mis-use in my case, I take extremely well care of my tools. I like the square, but this is pretty disappointing. Apart from this one design flaw, I can't say anything else bad about it.

    Broken after 4 months of normal use

    Comments about Pinnacle 12" Combination Square 3pc :

    The rule was accurate and well marked. Anvil is heavy and sturdy. What was wrong was the screw with the hook that is inside the anvil that one tightens a knob on so that the hook grabs onto the rule to seat it firmly in the anvil. After some use, i.e. loosening, sliding the rule in the anvil, and re-tightening; the hook inside wore off to the point that the rule started to wobble. It appears that the metal used for this part is too soft. I "retightened" by bending this part slightly so that whatever is left of the hook would grab onto the rule. But it still kept eroding. Now, the hook has completely broken off. I hope Pinnacle can correct this by using a harder metal for this part. It's a pity because everything else looks well made. Now, I have a well-made junk.

    Not much to say, but this square is great. Everything about it is first class. I love having this size square in my shop. Plus, the carrying case it comes with minimizes the chance of it getting ruined when not in use. Bottom line, this is a great square.
