You wouldn’t think that you could improve a stalwart product like the Empire 7-inch pivoting rafter square would you?
I’ve had one for decades.
You can see a photo of mine below. It’s rustier than an old nail.
You can’t even see the numbers any longer.
Sure, I could have kept it oiled and rust-free, but that’s just not practical.
It was announced on June 2, 2014 that Milwaukee Tool purchased the Empire Level company. They didn’t waste a moment injecting their innovation philosophy into the esteemed Empire Level company.
Milwaukee is on a tear creating new products and expanding the craftsmen they want to sell to.
Carpenters are in their sights.
Look what Milwaukee did with the 7-inch rafter square.
It’s a handsome blue aluminum (never rust!) with crisp laser etched markings.
It’s an awesome tool.
If you want the 12-inch size, it’s available to. CLICK HERE to see it.
The laser markings make for much greater accuracy. Can you imagine trying to figure out where you are using this old model?
Gone are the days of rust!
Look at how crisp the markings are on this gorgeous tool:
One of the best features is the wider heel on each side of the square. This ensures the tool will not move out of place on the rounded edges of the rough lumber you’re trying to mark.
