Description

Although very handy as a long-armed protractor for measuring inside or outside angles, this tool excels as a cutting guide. Without calculating anything, an angle can be duplicated perfectly. It is ideal for angled cuts in numerous situations. Check the angle, lock the protractor, and make your cut. Hard anodized aluminum with plated-steel fittings. The protractor is graduated to 180°, reading left to right and right to left. The arms are 20" and 9" and are graduated in 16ths and millimeters.

WOOD magazine review

Long-armed accuracy for any angle

Review Summary

This oversize bevel gauge picks up where your pocket-size model leaves off. For transferring angles from an odd-shaped piece to the mitersaw (as shown) or to your tablesaw miter gauge, the long blades of a protractor square provide plenty of bearing surface to ensure precise setup. This device does have a degree scale that you could use to set specific angles, but the small, closely spaced markings are difficult to read.
