Marking a Board Along its Length

Make quick and straight lines for ripping a board or for locating a line of holes for shelf standards with a combination square. First, adjust the square so the blade projects the correct distance from the head. Then hold your pencil against the end of the blade and slide the body of the square along the edge of the board. This also works with a speed square.
