        Q:how do I get a 22.5 angel cut on a 2x4
        by|Jan 15, 2022

        Answer This Question

        A:  Trying to eyeball 22.5 on the degree scale may be accurate enough but if you use the 5 on the common pitch scale (bottom of the slot) that will get you right there, perhaps a little more accurately.

        by|Jan 6, 2024

          A:  Mark from the pivot line to the middle of the 22 and 23 degree hash mark on the outside diagonal edge where those numbers all represent angles from 0 to 90 degrees. They are labeled in increments of 5. So just draw a line starting at your pivot mark to the angle you’re looking for and draw a line straight through from one point to the other.

            A:  Begin by using your square to draw a 90 degree line across your 2x4 next use your square to draw a 45 degree line across the 2x4 measure down from the 90 degree line to the 45 degree line. Make a mark 1/2 way between the two. starting at the original apex, draw a line to the new mark in the center. that will be 22.5 degrees.

              A:  Hold the "pivot" corner on the parallel 2x4. Pivot that point till the 22.5 degrees shows on the long angle line and mark it on the inch scale as in video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAilvHrOTsU

                  A:  I believe you have your question on the wrong product. This is a rafter square, not a calculator.

                      It is an excellent tool, it helped me to have more precision in the wood strokes.

                      Very inaccurate. Don’t buy it
                      I brought it home and tested it for accuracy. It was off by 1/16” over its 7” length. That’s more than 1/4” over 3 feet. Terrible product.

                        Not worth the money for inaccurate tool
                        As the saying goes you get what you pay for. If you're looking for accuracy for fine woodworking this is not the tool for you. Spend the money on good tools for accuracy. the Milwaukee version is more square than this version. This was the best looking one and more accurate when it was picked up at the store.

                          Should have bought this long time ago
                          I wished I had this extremely useful rafter square ruler when I welded steel channels in my last project. This ruler would have saved me multiple mis-measurements prior to cutting. I think this is as necessary as a measure tape.

                            Worked as it should. Seems to seat easily against any wood you are trying to make up & cut

                            Nice high visibility blue. Lightweight. All the standard hip and valley markings. We like empire at work. Great value and quality. This 12” square has a nice feel thats hard to describe.
