  • Who uses this?

    Saw this recently. Wondering if it's useful to carpenters or does the triangle still rule?

    About ten years ago there was a carpenters apprentice using one while he and his journeyman were snap,plate and detailing for the framers on a custom's slab.

    Wait a minute...They've added another 6" and a few gidgets.
    Maybe a down cut man for a framing crew.

      Too bulky for the bags.
      If you know how to use a tape a speed square will get you there just as fast.

        If you choose not to decide,you still have made a choice.

          I always used a try square with a 1 1/2" wide blade, and for the few times I needed angles I would use a framing square. I bought a few of the other things but never found them better than just the Try square, (but make sure it is the 1 1/2" wide blade for framing).
