Today's article cover all about a tool called T-Square.

T Square is basically a scale attached to a vertical head and as per defination it is a tool used to draw horizontal lines on the Drawing Sheet, apart from this it is also used to support Set Square which can be used to produce lines in multiple of 15°.

The measuring portion is called Blade and is used to draw horizontal lines on Drawing Sheet. The edge of the scale is called Working Edge. The remaning black portion is called Head/Stock which is used to support the T Square against the slotted edge of the Drawing Board so that it can facilitate drawing parallel horizonal lines as shown in figure.
