Introducing the brand NEW RS300 and RS180 Metric Rafter Squares.
Developed for quick and simple marking/laying out of roof trusses with the smart adjusting fence that locks in position for repeatability. With more than 6 gauges lasered onto the blades, the Rafter Squares can be used in many carpentry and fabrication projects.
The RS180 and RS300 are manufactured in Great Britain from a laser cut and CNC machine profiled 2.5mm and 3mm stainless steel, resulting in superb precision and robustness.
The blades have an anti-glare surface for outdoor use and have laser marked graduations coated with heavy-duty satin clear coat that contributes to the anti-glare and provides excellent wear and corrosion resistance.
The stylish, adjustable blue anodised aluminum fences are CNC machined and fixed to the blades with nylon 66 and stainless steel locking thumb screws for smooth operation.
There are several features and marking gauges on the face of the tools, including;
180mm and 300mm rulers respectively
Fixed protractor gauge along the hypotenuse edge
Adjustable rise and run protractor gauge (in degrees)
Scribe lines every 5mm
1 third scribe marks for common timber thicknesses
Constructed from 2.5mm (RS180) and 3mm (RS300) stainless steel
