    I think PEC is U.S. made. Maybe the box
    came from some Chinese junk and the salesman
    put the two together to make a better
    presentation. I had a small double square
    from PEC good finish and clear markings on
    the blade, but the blade wasn't square with
    the body. I touched up the inside groove
    with a small file it worked fine. Seems like
    PEC is better than import but not quite as
    good as Starret.

        Thanks for those comments! As I said the angle protractor is a very nice piece of equipment - MSRM - I think you must be right about the sales guy! There must be a factory somewhere in China knocking out these wood tool boxes by the ton. I should be happy it's wood, it could have been plastic ~ "wood doesn't grow on trees" as my old woodwork teacher used to say.

        I've got a Starret wiggler which is just great, had it for more years than I care to remember. Then I went and bought one of those fancy 'electronic' edge finders (battery and a bulb?!?) forget where it came from, but it had about a .050" runout. It doesn't even double up as a poor torch.

          Gee, I started a lot of comments.

          Too bad most of them are NOT about the subject ;-)

            Rmatel,

            Since when are the posts supposed to be about the subject. I thought going off track was half the fun

              Did you know there are 2-4-6 blocks too!
              How exciting! I am just giddy and tingly all over thinking about them.

              By the way, what was the subject again?

                About 246 Blocks I found a very good set
                from Grizzly for 69.99. Of course you
                couldn't buy the tool steel to make them
                yourself at that price. They are import from
                India I think. They are accurate too.
                No advertising intended.

                    Too bad Grizzly is allergic to Canada. Won't even send catalog here. Good price!

                    I would like to find a set of jig borer blocks cheap.
