Precision Milled

• Our squares are all individually machined to exacting tolerances on CNC milling machines. This allows for precise control of our end product and provides a superior finished edge.

Stainless Steel

• All Chappell squares are made from 304 Stainless steel. This ensures your square will be non-marking in use while providing a long service life that will retain an attractive, clean finish.
