Frequently Asked Questions
The Mega 12 and Monster 12 squares are 12″ x 12 ” x 3″. Approximate metric unit conversion is 305 x 305 x 76 mm.
Size of square should be determined on the size of material being used.
Applications with material less than 50 mm works best with the 200 mm square.
Applications with material larger than 50 mm works best with the 300 mm square.
Cast Iron is heavy duty and is best for high production, high-use applications. Aluminum is lighter and is best for wood working, off the table welding situations (like on sawhorses), and applications where rust may be an issue.
Please see our video about this topic on our YouTube channel. Cast Iron or Aluminum?
Black Oxide, blackening, oxidizing, oxiding, black passivating, gun bluing… these terms all refer to the process of forming a black iron oxide on the surface of ferrous metals.
The black oxide process is a chemical conversion coating. This means that the black oxide is not deposited on the surface of the substrate like nickel or zinc electroplating. Instead, the black oxide coating is produced by a chemical reaction between the iron on the surface of the ferrous metal and the oxidizing salts present in the black oxide solution. These oxidizing salts include penetrates, catalysts, activators and proprietary additives which all take part in the chemical reaction. The result of this chemical reaction is the formation of black iron oxide, magnetite (Fe3O4), on the surface of the metal being coated.

Edge Location Tabs
Our revolutionary tabs allow you to align your material up so that you don’t even need a welding table! Don’t spend thousands on a flat table, just use our squares! Tighten the tabs onto the front or back of your square and you can immediately get to work. Sure, there are different jigs out there, but can they line your material perfectly in seconds?
Keep squares away from moisture as much as possible. Use any good quality rust inhibitor to keep rust from forming.
Yes, Cast Iron is magnetic. Cast Aluminum is not.
