Handy Assortment of Items

Review Summary

I purchased these items seperately, only because the 3-piece kit wasn't available. Instead of listing each item seperately and the kit is available, I choose to list the kit only but each items is available for individual purchase. The MagnaTip™ Magnetic Tape Measure Attachment was too small and retaining tabs too narrow for blade tip insertion for any of my tape measures; it broke the first time I used it so it was completely useless; good concept but bad quality.
The Square Check fits any brand of tape measures I used and makes it easier to ensure that your project is square from corner to corner so that you don't have to fight with your tape measure and it works well. The EZ-Mark Line Cords has allowed me to attach screws and nails to my project without having to measure, mark and draw lines. Overall, I found this set to be usefull for fabricating projects.

Very convenient and useful tools.

Review Summary

I'm not always a fan of the Rockler innovative tools but I have all three of these and I love them. The magnetic tip fit's a 30 ft Stanley tape measure snuggly and it stays on. The magnet is more powerful than you might think. It came in very handy on it's first use, when making and inside to inside window measurement, for window blinds. The magnet sticks to the window ledge , because of the metal corner bead. This made measuring much easier and faster.
The elastic line straps saves a bunch of time not having draw lines , when driving screws or nails. The square check tool fits any size tape and works well for outside corner to outside corner measurements.
