Use a Radio Antenna to Check Square Measurements in the Workshop

Measuring out project with a radio antenna An old telescoping antenna can be helpful in measuring out the diagonals of your next project

To check my diagonals for square, I use an old telescoping radio antenna with the ends fashioned into points to fit into corners better. I extend the antenna one way, then carefully lift it out and see if it fits the space between the other pair of diagonals. No need to measure.
