Angles are not 90 degrees
from Northbrook IL
Comments about Alvin Academic T-Square:
I read the other reviews and bought this T Square not for the low price, but for the design. However, I can't use it because the 2 angles of the 'T' are not 90 degrees and that is the most important feature I needed. I have to commend Dick Blick Online because when I called to ask about returning it, they refunded my money when I explained the problem.If you need a T Square to be 90 degrees, I would not get this particular one.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We apologize for the defective T-square you received, and of course we were happy to take care of that for you. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to help!

Great for Students
from Clifton, VA
I used these T-squares for two weeks so far with 6th-8th graders. They are durable and work well. I was looking for an inexpensive T-square that seemed like it would last when used by middle school students. I have had no problems yet.

Back to the Basics
The T-square is great for the price paid and it is more of the basic type that was used years ago.Nothing real fancy about it but it is made of a good solid hard wood and it should last many years as long as it is taking care of.I got the 18 inch and it is the perfect size for my needs.I would buy another if it would happen to be lost or stolen.Great buy at a great price.
Made great to last!
from Fairmont,West Virginia.
The Product is just like I new it would be! I use it all the time and it is made very well! I used it the first to draw up plans for my garden. I will use it for my next project, I'm going to build my own house boat to live on. Thank you!

Just what I wanted
By Amazing Jane
from Tucson, Arizona
This is an old fashioned wooden t square and for some of us, this is heaven. The balance is right. Handling is simple. And it becomes stained with the euphoria of creation over the years. That's important. If your t has traces of "great" past works, all the better.This is unvarnished as it should be. Aesthetic in it's own right, and will be better with age.Did I mention it's perfectly square?
