{{other uses|T-square (disambiguation)}}{{more citations needed|date=September 2014}}(File:Drafting board with T Square.jpg|thumb|Drafting board with a T-square and triangle)A T-square is a technical drawing instrument used primarily as a guide for drawing horizontal lines on a drafting table. It may also guide a set square to draw vertical or diagonal lines.BOOK, United States War Department, Topographic Drafting, U..S. Government Printing Office, 1940, 27–28,weblink Its name comes from its resemblance to the letter T. T-squares come in varying sizes, common lengths being {{convert|18|inch}}, {{convert|24|inch}}, {{convert|30|inch}}, {{convert|36|inch}} and {{convert|42|inch}}.{{Citation needed|date=September 2010}}T-squares are also used to measure and cut drywall. Drywall T-squares are typically made of aluminium and have a {{convert|48|inch|adj=on}} long tongue.Higher-end table saws are often equipped with T-square fences. These table saw fences are attached to a rail only on the front side of the table unlike traditional fences which clamp to both the front and the rear of the table.A T-square has two components - the long shaft called the "blade" and the short shaft called the "stock" or "head". The T-square usually has a transparent edge made of plastic which should be free of nicks and cracks in order to provide smooth, straight lines.
