    SWANSON FROM THE BEGINNING

    The Swanson Speed Square and the “One Number” method of determining the angular pitch of a roof were first developed in 1925 by a carpenter name Albert J. Swanson. As his fellow tradesmen began to appreciate the ingenuity of his idea, they wanted their own Speed Square. Swanson began to hand make the squares to fill the requests for the tool. Demand for the work-saving tool continued to grow and in 1930 the Swanson Speed Square was first sold in interstate commerce. By 1945 Swanson started Swanson Tool Company, Inc. to manufacture and sell the Speed Square through recognized channels of distribution. His son, Ronald C. Swanson assumed control of the company in 1971 and added other quality tools to the line. Today, Swanson Tool Company continues to proudly manufacture and distribute the Swanson Speed Square and other fine carpentry tools from its headquarters in Frankfort, Illinois. Under the direction of the Allemand Family, the Swanson product line has been upgraded and expanded to meet the changing needs of its contractors and do-it-yourself enthusiasts.

    I''m writing this purely on the speed square, as the combination square worked perfectly as designed. This speed square is perfect and true... as long as you''re only using it on radius edge lumber. In my furniture shop it''s fairly worthless as where the lip meets the plate there''s a slight radius which will not allow it to seat square on a true square cut board. Possibly I got a fluke piece, as my 30 or 40 year old Swanson will seat true on any board you apply it to. This new unit however, which was purchased to replace a 5 dollar Harbor Freight tool on the miter saw station, will be relegated to the truck box for rough construction purposes.

    I am sure there’s all kinds of wonderful things a real carpenter can do with one of these but this isn’t that. As a retired guy that likes to build a few things around the house, I can’t believe what a great tool this is! I am almost done with some long overdue shelves in the garage and I have used this tool countless times in the process. As I am on my time now, I’m much more interested in quality than quantity. In order to get the precision I am committed to, I measure everything, pre-drill the holes and use screws, not nails. With the help of this tool and a couple of others, I am able to get some very acceptable results and intend to add a photo or two when the project is completed.
    There are a few good videos on YouTube showing everything from the basics to advanced techniques so if you are really interested, check that out. Any time I can get a tool this useful, of this quality for under ten bucks, sign me up! In my spare time, I intend on reviewing other videos to see what all else this can be used for.

    I''ve had these squares for about 2 years. I''m not a contractor and I take good care of my tools. I''ve used the 6-inch square more often than the 12-inch. I''ve never noticed any issues with this square until recently when I was using it to verify alignment of a cabinet hardware jig. The wide bottom plate of the square is not flat. It is warped across the length by about 1/16 of an inch which is significant for this length. I placed it on a flat surface and verified this several times. I know that this is a framing square, but it made me question the accuracy of the entire tool. I contacted Swanson and they were willing to replace the square if I sent this one to them for inspection. Unfortunately, shipping would pretty much cover the cost of a replacement.

    I''m always trying to increase my knowledge of building and carpentry and recently decided to incorporate a rafter (with bird''smouth) design into my window awning project. The Swanson square was perfect for the job and with the book it came with I was able to learn the "One-Number" rule that makes it real simple to build your roof rafters. I''d advise all first timers to do it on a smaller project--such as dog house or small shed--before a home''s roof. I''m not a natural numbers guy so only read the book in a few parts, watched a quick video on the Swanson square and then went to work.
    I went through three sets of 2x4 rafters templates until I got the angle just right for the rafter to sit up against the ledger against the wall and the birdsmouth to land on the lower ''sill plate'' that would support the window awning. I think my "ONE" number for pitch was 9 (I was using degrees{36}) and from that number you can essentially build a real roof. It came out great and from this one project I''''m pretty sure I can build a real roof for any structure I design at this point. If you know your ''one'' number prior to building a new project but we didn''t because of other concerns such as making the awning tall enough for my clients to walk under while slope had to be steep enough to provide sufficient shade to window. As a result, my assistant and I had to test angle cuts (and then hold them up against the framing structure) until we got the approximation of 36 degree-which makes all the rafters plumb cuts. Then using the square we got the pitch of 9. More importantly, you can use a simple formula to find the distance for your birdsmouth (where your ''seat'' and ''heel'' cuts meet the outer edge of your bulding/sill plate). Prior to this project I only used my squares for 90degree cuts. Now, it''s opened up a whole world of building possibilities. Thanks for the book, Swanson.

    The 7" is bent over the long and short side.. nearly 1/16" deviation on each side in places NOT related to the 12"

    Nothing I cant fix, but really .. an hugely sturdy tool such as these should not arrive bent and at least more carefully inspected / go through a conformity jig prior to leaving the factory..

    So much for USA quality.... embarrassing!

    This is 3/16 aluminum, with a rare feel of quality - an outlier that somehow remained untouched by the corporate bean-counters.

    As for squareness, it checks out perfectly for framing work. If you are doing machine work, get the proper tool.

    Saw this on a youtube clip and thought it looked good so i bought one. I''m about to buy another one for work and a third for the allotment tools'' box. It''s very robust and gives the confidence that it''s not going to go out of square if it''s dropped, treated roughly or dropped into the tool box and forgotten about when handling. The question I asked myself after using it for a few weeks was " why haven''t I had one of these for years?" I''m on the verge of owning three! It doesn''t look as good as the more traditional "trisquare" with a lovely wooden butt and brass riveting, but I''ve accidentally mistreated my ones and I''m not confident they are square any more. Got my first one of these Swansons two years ago and now retiring my tri squares to the tool-board to spend the rest of their days looking good and resting.
