Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by henweewee easy to use angle finder
Was adding crown molding to my kitchen. This made finding the angles very easy. After a little google search for the saw settings the molding is up and looks great.

outstanding for finding the correct angle for cutting trim, don't know why I waited so long before purchasing one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Laner84 Perfect for smaller surfaces
I actually went in for a more expensive digital angle finder but found this much more sutible for my needs. I use it to set up deflections for RC airplanes. Works great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by weekenddyi good tool to have if you're doing trim work
I am just a weekend dyi. I decided to replace the base board wood trim in a couple rooms. The corners are hard to get so there is not a gap showing, because the house corners are not square. This tool allows me to measure the angle and then split it into rather that just assuming a 45/45 joint. Inexpensive. well made, easy to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheAllThumbsCarpenter Excellent utility for small cost
I bought it in store for a project involving building a handicap access ramp for my home meeting a complex staged ramp approach to save space in my screened in porch, running it parallel to the home rather than a perpendicular ranp direct to the door. I had to make several angled cuts for superstructure of both the ramp and at door elevated landing and the tool was perfect for my needs. It's use is very intuitive, if you can use a protractor from HS geometry class, you can use this. It's compact, and inexpensive enough that it can be easily replaced if lost or broken, and the scale is easy to read. The locking nut, once you have the angle set, holds nicely, too. I definitely recommend this tool for the home DIY carpenter. It's really intended for small jobs, but it worked well for my big one as well, and we now have a ramp that could take the weight of a car, so I'm not worried about even a powered wheelchair, weight wise. It was easy to use for even me, the all thumbs carpenter after a couple strokes.
Hint: If I can use it, anyone can....I'm a mechanical idiot! :p

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JoeBob Perfect for light jobs
I had a couple of pieces of molding and crown molding to put up on a square porch post that isn't quite square. I needed an easy way to get the angles right for the miter cuts. I don't do this often enough to justify spending $30 to $100 on a fancy digital angle finder. This little tool is dead easy to use for both inside and outside angles and it's accurate. Considering the price it is made quite well. It probably wouldn't last long in daily use but for the occasional home molding jobs it's just right.
The instructions are rather light, just a couple of pictures on the back of the package. This tools function is basic enough to figure out, it really only does one thing. You stick it in/on a corner and then read the angle it points to. If you are not mechanically inclined or didn't pay attention in high school math classes then you may want to spend the extra money on the digital tool.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DuoDynamico Don't waste your $5
Unfortunately this angle finder turned out to be a waste of $5 and waste of lots of frustrating time. There are no instructions and is not very accurate. I have shown it to several people and none of us can Accurately figure out how to use this thing. For example, we measured an angle which is known to be 22.5. However no matter how I try to measure using this tool, I cannot get it to display at or near 22.5. not easy to use. many people have had the same issue. Not a good buy. Even if it is free, I'd still stay away. Have to look for another one now.
