Modified Square

modified_square.jpgIf this one doesn't provoke the, "um...what the hell is that?" response, we don't know what will. This freaky measuring and marking tool is called The Modified Square and it looks like a traditional framing square that's been caught between dimensions. Once we got over the bizarre look of it and did a little research, it does seem like it could be a handy item for a carpenter.

The Modified Square website lists a large number of things that the tool can do, including; the "[ability] to square pipe and structural steel in wet dock. Due to the inability to use a level on water, provides pipefitters squaring in two moves." We have no idea what exactly this means, but we can understand, "great for notching out 2x4s and trusses, stair stringers, framing, layout of double corners."

The Modified Square costs about $25. For more information, check out the website.
