Cleaning Rusty Combination Squares
« on: February 02, 2020, 10:09:29 PM »
I cleaned these three squares this weekend. They are still works in progress, but they already look much better and can now be used. The last photo is the before shot.
The top square is a 8 inch Craftsman combination square. Lots of pitting on the ruler, but now most of the rust is gone. It will be fine for most normal usage.
The middle square is a Protractor Square by Mohawk Shelburne. Still needs some rust removal on the frame, but otherwise in good shape.
The bottom combination square isn't branded, but it is interesting. It has quarter inch markings enumerated in 32's of an inch. Not often you see those numbers on inexpensive squares. The Mohawk has the markings, but no numbers.
