    Thanks George. I have never gone to the expense of purchasing one of these since I have a “center finder” attachment for one of my combination squares. When I replaced the square, I kept the attachment to use for layout just as you showed.

    I’ve had one for years and it’s useful enough to me that I keep it in the pocket of my apron along with a utility knife and not much else.

    I use the center-finding head from my Starrett rules. It works quite well, and I can save some cash because of it’s dual use capability.

    I have a saddle square from Bridge City Tool Works, which has the advantage of folding in the middle, which allows marking lines on a piece where the two sides are not 90 degrees. Very useful tool.
