Topic tags/keywords: ruler uniruler resource

Hi Guys, Just came across this fabulous new tool.. The UniRuler...

Check out the video…

<iframe src=”” frameborder=”0” height=”315” width=”420”></iframe>

And although it was primarily designed for masonry work, it can be used by all trades.
It seems that it would be great for woodworkers too… there are a multitude of uses…
I will be ordering one and will review it when it arrives… at this stage after New Year…
As yet I have no pricing on it… but you can contact the inventor direct…They are taking pre-orders.


Edit… I have just received confirmation that it will be under $20.00!

The video works for me. I’m not feeling the Love though. I gotta see more of how it can help a woodworker. Show me when you receive it. :)

It can replicate any angle?!
That would be cool…
If you needed a perfect 90°, you could just bring it to one of the corners of any room to set it… :)

Another option for capturing exact miter angles (e.g. for crown molding) is the Starrett Protractor Angle Finder ( Rarely if ever are walls exactly 90 degrees in the corners, making the tool quite useful for calculating full and half angle measurements you can use at the miter saw.

Looks Interesting but I think lots of other tools could do the same.

Hey guys it’s a gadget—- don’t we all need another gadget? It looks interesting to me. Not sure what I would use it for, but I can see it being versatile for some jobs. I’ll be interesting in your review when you get it.

Does it have a locking mechanism to keep you from bumping the angle you are measuring off a few degrees
when you move the ruler?
