old skool

Yesterday I bought a chincy square from Blick for three dollars, two hours later I was referred to this sexy number:

Behold, the original Swanson Speed Square.

Invented in 1925 by mister Swanson himself, this tool is actually five tools in one! A tri-square, a miter square, a protractor, a line scriber, and a saw guide. I want this and I want to build things. Though, I need a little more Spring in the air so people will start putting out their old woodstuffs again!
