The Best Things
Measuring Tools

There is an old carpenter's saying, "Measure twice and cut once." Good measurements are at the heart of good work, and good measurements require good measuring tools. Joseph Marples and Robert Sorby of Sheffield make traditional cabinetmaker's squares that are as useful today as they were 200 years ago. Brown & Sharpe and L. S. Starrett primarily specialize in machinist's measuring tools, however many modern woodworkers use Brown & Sharpe and L. S. Starrett measuring tools because they desire the higher precision afforded by these tools. Whichever you prefer, you can be assured with these two brands that you are buying the best.
