The DIS Group has been working with multiple products for 14 years and brings them to the open market in a timely fashion. This project has been in testing and development for over 3 years at this current time and we will continue to bring improvements as fast as they are proven to be ready for your use and or abuse.
On an episode of the "This Old House" show made 4 years ago, Tom Silva shows off his speed square holder. Thinking to myself “that’s cool”, I looked to see where I could get one. I found out the answer is NOWHERE!
I then looked into making my own like I have seen on the web and YouTube and saw some problems right off the bat. They were not well balanced; not locking on to the speed square; not easy to drop into or remove from the holder; the clips did not hook on good; they were heavy and just not what is needed!
First try, I made it out of square stock aluminum. I made it out of plastic fence post. I even made it on a 3D printer and like Thomas A. Edison, I found many ways NOT to make a speed square holder.
I found a company that was here in the USA and willing to work with me to get it right. Even so, it still took 3 tries to wring out the bugs. I finally got the right material and built in the clips, ramps and even a place to hold a spare carpenters pencil. I wanted to have a holder that anyone could use.
