I don't do much woodworking. Instead, I am trained as a landscape designer. I was in the store looking for another item and had to pick this up. This has to be the most well-made protractor I have ever seen after looking in lots of different art supply shops.
I love that it is made of sturdy aluminum and that you can remove the red guide rail at the bottom, so I can use it on an edge or anywhere on a flat surface. I love that there are slots in the protractor so it is easy to mark the angle precisely without a lot of fussing.
It's a great drafting tool in general whether you do woodwork or another type of design work.
This made an otherwise tricky task a lot easier. Needed to tilt (angle) a mortise in the dead center of a template guide I needed to build. Removed the red guide for this project. Easy to line up the protractor on the axes and then draw the angled guidelines where needed. Worked like a dream.
This is a real precision piece of essential equipment. The precise milling of the marking holes has no equal. I have used the short 'T-square' for years, so I was very pleased to find the protractor to add to my tools.
I've bought other Incra products in the past and have had nothing buy praise for the quality and ease of use. This product is no exception. With the many precise angles required to build a chair like this, the Incra protractor made it much easier to carry out. I will buy more Incra items in the future. Thanks.
