This tool was extremely useful for finding angles and transferring them to the flooring for cutting. It was great to use around door jams and finding odd angles around kitchen cabinets. Basically used it everywhere to transfer angles instead of assuming or trying to measure degrees and such, more accurate and less human error.
It comes in a felt case with a draw string closure. However, I won't be storing mine in it. I'm keeping it prominent on my tool wall ready to use at a moments notice. It's definitely light enough and durable to keep in any tool box/bag/pouch. I would highly recommend this purchase!
Works just as advertised. And, there are many additional you tube ideas on how to use this time. I first tried some other products, all of which I sent back. The knobs are larger with more gripping surface and much easier to tighten down. Unlike the competition. which generally have tiny tightening knobs that just do not do the job. Also, the other templates were made of a thinner material and also lost their lost ability to hold a template pattern due to the weak undersized knobs.
I am certain that this product will hold up over time, when compared to all of the others I tired.
Excellent product. I had a plastic one that broke after 3 months of use. This one is high-quality aluminum, precise, very well made. The product's description online is not an exaggeration. Well worth the money! (P.S. -- I spent my own money on this. I did NOT receive a free or discounted product for evaluation).
Very accurate and helpful. Handy product wish I had know about it years ago. Remodeling my current home and helping a friend with theirs - handiest tool I have in my tool box. Worked fantastic when we worked on flooring and expect it will be great with the deck too!
Although I have not had a specific application for this tool, it is going to come in very handy sometime soon. I have had the need to replicate a pattern in the past and I really wish I had this tool then. Considering how inexpensive the tool is, it's one of those things every guy should have in his toolbox. Stop to think about all the applications you may have for this tool. Now, don't you think you need one, too?
Spouse has been repairing the roofing trim and many of the boards are 20 feet long. He purchased this so he could get the exact angles he needed, remove portions of the boards, and replace them with new material. This little tool was perfect! It made a difficult and dangerous job much faster. Working high on a very sloped roof means taking accurate angle measurements sucks--every mistake means more wood wasted and another useless trip up and down the ladder. Day 1 we did not have this tool and there was a great deal of swearing, with a rain day break, Day 2 and this tool made a HUGE difference! While there are still more trim boards to be repaired, the worst has been completed and are off our worry list!
I used this to mark out some thick oak shelves to be fixed by secret supports, the angles were easy to set and made the fixing very easy.
All around solid tool. Seems well built. It’s metal and it looks to me if I keep this in the bag and I’m careful to not throw heavy tools on top of it... it will last a while not like the plastic cheap ones.Yes I highly recommend this product.
The measuring tool is well made and a very sturdy, strong tool that will stands up to much use. I just bought the tool a few weeks ago and haven't used it a lot yet but I know this will be a valuable tool for my remodeling jobs or anything that I need precise a cut or angle. I am very happy with the value for such a well made tool. Customer service has been great and the shipping was very fast. You can't go wrong.
Purchased for crafty son in law. He will he using soon for bathroom installation and flooring. This is a life saver when it comes down to keeping shapes with my wood or metal working. Very happy with this product and its very easy to use.
Excellent tool that does exactly what it advertises. Quality construction which should hold up to the test of time. Very happy!
