I’ve seen some of the 12” triangles, Woodpeck’s for example, but I’d like to have a 16” one. Anyone have a good place to go for one of these? Thanks. Greg

Greg,

You might try the following web site:
http://www.compoundmiter.com/squareorder.html
Also a good source for accurate low cost squares and protractors.

Might try an office supply store or one that specializes in drafting supplies.

At worst, why not make one of your own? A piece of 1/4” or 1/8” hardboard, check for a good 90 degree corner, measure 16” up each side, cut it with a straight edge and pattern bit in a router. You can even cut a hole in the center with a can light bit or the router with a pattern bit.

Good luck. Cheers!

I tried the office supply route, could only get a 12”, and when I checked it at home, it wasn’t even square! No drafting supply shops around here, and who even draws by hand anymore, LOL. I was looking for someplace that others had tried before and found the triangle to be accurate/square. I might consider making my own, just picked up a sheet of hardboard this am. Thanks. Greg

Try Lee Valley Tiools. They have large squares and triangle. I think up to 4ft. It measures 48” squre. There is a not in their catalogue that it can’t be shipped. But if you know someone in Canada they may be able to pick one up nad ship to you.

They also have a protractor that may work. It meaasures 20X9”

Have your say...
