After my first impressions post which many of you confused with my over all judging of the tool I could wait and more. I grabbed some Walnut and started to make a box. I deiced to not do anything elaborate and use no layout tools but my pencil a 2ft ruler and this little guy.
First off I used the triangle to set my saw blade. I put it up on the table and cranked my blade into 45 degrees up againest the triangle. I then put on a digital angle reader and it was dead at 45.
I then cut all my parts and did the appropriate procedures on them.
I rolled my box together with tape and placed the triangle in the 1/8th inch recess on the bottom. It read perfectly square. But how do I know to believe that? I then placed my starrett mini combo square in the same spot (I trust this square with my life) And it read the exact same.
Another feature of this I really like is the tick marks on the ruler. There are large markings for 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4.
There nice and big and easy to find when your measuring and marking.
I also ran a few test with the triangle check its accuracy upright and in all sorts of circumstances. The only time it came up short was when I had a wood chip under it throwing it off.
All in all I am still impressed with this tool and it will become one of my regular measuring tools!
I hope this is beneficial to some of you!
