I am hoping that you can point me in the right direction of a good machinist square.
I need a good benchmark to make sure things are as good as I can get them.

To expand on what Leo said, I have the Starrett Combination square that does a little more than just a Machinists square.
Make sure you get a Starrett, not one from across the Pond.

I have a Starrett. I recommend it.
I also picked up two sizes of Pinnacle Precision triangles from Woodcraft a while back. I really like them for squaring cabinets, frames and the like. They also come really handy for doing jointer fences or table saw blades. I checked them against my Starrett and a machinist's square and they are pretty square. They are also quite sturdy.

Starett it is.
You won't regret it. I have a Starret 3 piece set I bought used and it is still as a good as new. I showed it to a Starret rep at a woodworking show and he said it was at least 50 years old.
