Hey all

I was wondering if anyone of you knew how to calculate the angle of a cross brace...

Say you have a 2x4 and you want to put is at an angle between 2 joits that are at x" ... u'd have to calculate the angle.

I am sure in the old days the carpenters must have had a tool to do so... or a formula.

I made myself a jig that I use to trace the angle but cannot figure out how to calculate it!

thanks in advance!
