Mornng all,
The part of the try-square that one holds is called the stock, I believe. What's the other part called? Is it the blade? Doesn't sound right, as it is not sharp, but I can't think of anything else!
Thanks
Steve

PS, Bob, if you want to get your own back by posting a long, factually accurate but completely unhelpful reply, I wouldn't blame you at all! :)

I think 'blade' is right, from memory. Here's one for you: what's a 'rack catch plunger release catch cam'?? :) Best said out loud, in a sing song manner...

I've always called it the blade. Dunno where that came from though. Probably my Dad
