      • Easy to Use Aluminum Rafter Square

      This is a classic rafter square with a few new twists and easy to identify markings and features. A rafter square is a versatile and priceless tool. I've used this one like a work horse for renovations. You can't miss it on the job site - the blue color really stands out. I use it as a straightedge to make short cuts with a circular saw. I use it to drill pilot holes in cabinet doors and drawers for hardware. I use it to mortise door jams and strike plates. I use it to score drywall by setting my knife on a point and dragging the square down the sheet. I use it to frame square stairs treads, risers and bracing. Ironically it's called a rafter square and I've never used it for rafters. This square has a wider than normal base plate. Not sure if the wider plate adds more stability or squareness but I like that it's wider. One of the best features that comes with this square is the in-depth users guide. Lots of tables for determining the correct dimensions for your rafters. Lose the booklet? No worries. Use your smart phone's QR scanner app to scan the bar code printed on the square itself and you can pull up the rafter tables on your phone at the job site. Brilliant feature! She's a keeper.

      Pros Durable, Easy to Use, Accurate, Light Weight, qr code, excellent users manual
