Machining a Machinist Square

I thought it would be entertaining to continue my custom metal tool build collection. So the next tool that would work hand in hand with my metal scribe would be a machinist square!

The build for this is very straightforward. I used brass as the main square and some aluminum for the handles. Neither of these materials are the most ideal for this application, as they both scratch very easily, but it looks nice and both readily machine in the Nomad 883 mill.

This is really all I have to say about this build, because the rest is put into this sweet video! Enjoy!
