Veritas Square Fence

Average reader rating
out of 5


A carpenter's square is frequently needed just because of its size. The key disadvantage of such a square (its lack of a supporting fence ledge) can now be eliminated using a Veritas square fence.

The 8" long anodized aluminum extrusion can be readily attached to either the stock or blade of your square (depending upon intended use) with the two integral brass screws. The face of the square fence aligns with the edge of the workpiece while the weight of the framing square rests on the material.

One side offers a 1" high face. Flipping it over, the opposite side has a 1/4" face, letting you use it on workpieces this thin without having to slide them to the edge of your workbench. Its purposeful shape not only acts as a versatile fence, but also gives your framing square a handle, hugely increasing its utility. Ideal for use on round-edge material and sheet stock.

A wildly useful little accessory in the shop

Review Summary

Squares: everybody's got some, and often times the bigger they are the better. The problem always is when you need a BIG square. Say... two feet long by sixteen inches on the other leg. Wait a moment, my rafter square is that size. But how to get the edge to register accurately against my board? Problems... problems. Well, no more.
This accessory from Lee Valley gives you a honkin' huge square in your shop, now suitable for Fast and Easy reference lines on sheet goods and wider boards. I've got two large rafter squares, one of which has sported this fence since the day I bought it several years ago. I can't seem to build anything without reaching for it. If you've got a square that you're confident in then this accessory is for you. It'll bring your measuring and marking to a new (fast and easy!) level.
