We've packed a bunch of design features from our RSA Rafter Squares and ever popular Pocket Squares into the brand new MTS 4. It's incredibly versatile for such a small tool that easily fits in your pocket.
CNC machined from high quality T6 European aluminum plate, the MTS 4 is a sturdy and robust little tool.
The face has a 15 micron+ thick anodised surface (this thick coating is not usually found on lower priced tools) and is mated to the two-part machined aluminum fence using stainless steel fixings.
The fence has a 45 degree chamfer removed from the corner near the pivot point so that the MTS 4 can be used on steel box section, especially where welds may build up in the corners.
The MTS 4 includes notches every 16th" allowing for ultra precise and simple scribing. The 8ths scale is on one side and the 16th's on the reverse.
The 4 inch ruler is laser marked in a recessed pocket. This limits contact between the scale marks and wood surface, helping to prevent the graduation marks rubbing off over time.
There's also a handy degree gauge running along the hypotenuse edge that has been calibrated to the inside pivot edge of the the fence.
Overall the MTS is a great introduction to the excellent craftsmanship and engineering that TrigJig tools are renowned for.
