Why are the square and compasses on the floor and not on the VSL?

    When the stones for the building of the Temple were prepared in the quarries, they were marked in such a way as to ensure not only that the craftsmen who made them were recognized and paid for their labour, but also that they fitted together exactly when they were brought to the construction site. As the Temple site was Holy ground, and nothing common or unclean was permitted to be used there, except the purest gold, no metal tools were used in the placing of the masonry. Yet it fitted together perfectly.

    So the square and compasses are not placed on the VSL in the Royal Arch, in allusion to the manner in which the Temple was constructed.
