Check for accuracy

Before using a vee block, you should check its accuracy. Constant use with the same cylindrical workpieces is likely to affect the sides of the vee channel. In addition, if the block has become rusted, the four sides and two ends of the tool may be no longer truly parallel or square to one another. Before using a vee block, you should check its accuracy.
