  • to measure distance.
  • To check the flatness of the surface.

  • To draw perpendicular lines to each other.

Try Square Types of

It is of four types-

(1.)(Fixed) or Fixed Tri-Square

This type of try square ( Try Square ) the blade is attached to the stock by a rivet at a 90 degree angle, so that the blade remains fixed in one place with the stock, hence also called a solid tri square.

It is used in making die and punch, its stock has two screws at the bottom. The larger of these is used to clamp the screw blade to the stock.

It is used to provide different types of relief angles in dies. The set consists of four blades to measure in different sizes-

(1.)Standard blade

It is about 12 mm wide and 65 mm long.

(2.)Narrow narrow blade

Tri-Square Method

Before checking the squareness of two surfaces, these two surfaces should be checked. whether it is flat or not. Tri square blade is used for this work, which is absolutely flat and straight. If the blade is placed directly on the surface of the jab. So when the surface is flat, the edge of the blade will be adjacent to the surface of the jab the entire length.

The edge of the blade is in contact with the job surface for its entire length. or not. To check this, see the surface between the blades or Of Light is passing or not. When the entire surface is perfectly flat, the light will not be visible from anywhere along the entire length of the blade between the surface and the edge of the blade.
