Hi Mel, those are for figuring pitch and common. There are some very good YouTube videos that can show you exactly what they all mean and how to calculate them.

Empire created a quality product that looks and feels very durable for field or homeowner type work.This thing is sturdy, I have dropped it in many occasions without causing any damage to it. The base of the rafter is large enough to allow it to stay in place. There is a bar code on the rafter that will take you to a user manual for this tool. As with any product, there is room for improvement. The edges/corners can be a bit sharp. This could cause some damage if using the rafter on a softer material than aluminum.

(What's this)
The thing that's different about this square is that It's fully laser engraved, so unless you scratch off all the paint, you'll always be able to see the markings. But even so, you could run a marker or paint over and then sand off the surface and you would still have visible markings. I really like the fine etching on this, as the smaller your measurements are, the more precise your work, and less chances of inaccuracy and problems down the road. The aluminum is nice and light, but it will bend easily at the tips, therefore leaving a small burr which may affect performance if used for fine woodworking and angles, needing to be constantly filed down smooth, but that's the price you pay in exchange for weight. Besides, just about every tool needs some sort of maintenance sooner or later. You can be rest assured that it's fully made in the USA. It has the inch to foot conversions along with the common rafter conversions in degrees of inch rise/foot engraved right into the back, which comes in VERY handy. The notches make it very easy to score lines through with your pencil. This square is quite thick too, so it works great as a saw guide!

(What's this)
I am very happy with the weight of this tool and also the sturdiness of it. It is very easy to read so therefore becomes the tool for me because my eyesight weakens with years. I am able to step on the square without breaking it. I know stepping on it is not too smart, but somehow I always manage to do it. if you want a square and do not want to make that purchase again for life I would definitely recommend this one.
