We have really enjoyed using Shinwa's sashigane with plastic stops for about a year now - imagine our excitement when we heard that shinwa were releasing an upgraded model!
This square with stop features an identical sashigane to our other model, with a totally flat body, matte chrome finish, easy to read millimetre increments and measurements printed front and back.
However, the square has been updated dramatically. It is now a solid metal construction and incorporates a vernier scale. This means it can be used as a vernier when measuring the thickness of stock, or brought in to play to add precision when marking out. Want to hit that half-millimetre increment? No need to guess anymore - just set your stop to it and mark away!
