    Default Omnisquare - new layout tool

    I just purchased a new layout tool, an omnisquare. It's a multipurpose square. I believe it will be a very handy tool for a variety of woodworking layout tasks including CNC work.

    I have no personal interest in this company, I'm passing it on because I think other woodworkers will find this tool very useful.

    it is a cool looking tool. I don't really do that kind of work for the most part myself.

    I can see how it would be useful, being so small. You could spend $20 and get far less value.
