Customer Questions & Answers

how do they work?

Asked by: Jack
When you screw out the holding screw and slide the gauge to where the flat surface of the slot rest against your framing square then you use your flat surface of the gauge that's on the top part of the square to line up with the number for your rise or run whichever your setting, once lined up on the square with the number then tighten down the holding screw to lock it in place keeping the gauge flush against the square edge at the slot, then repeat same with the other measurement and your done. Double check your rise and run measurements from the 90degree corner of the square back to the flat edge on top of square that is locked in on your measurement on the square, lay your square top side up and let gauge rest flush against edge of 2x12 stringer and mark your rise and run onto the stringer, then slide square down to where your gauge and square line up with the mark leading to you next step in the stringer and repeat this till you get all rise and run for steps marked out on the stringer and your ready to cut out your steps. I always cut to the angle mark on the rise and run intersection and then use jig saw or sawzall to finish out my cuts. I hope this helps you out.

My gauges came with a ball bearing in the slot where you slide in the square. Why?

Asked by: Bob
I've never seen a set with a bearing in it but I would assume that it is for ease of movement against your stringer edge when setting your gauges to your rise and run numbers.
