    If you are a finishing carpenter,cabinet installer,railing installer,flooring installer,this NOT a dying tool. People may not be aware of them because of not being exposed to them but once a craftsman uses one, it quickly becomes as normal a tool a your hammer. Used one probably every day almost every job. Thanks for sharing

  3. Un Perrier on September 13, 2022 at 1:41 am

    I’ve got a tip on how I use these…
    Where I use it gives me great pleasure 🤣



  4. Frank Costanzo on September 13, 2022 at 1:44 am

    Any chance you can share where you got that bevel square with the little brass handle? That is a thing of beauty 😍



  5. Patricia May on September 13, 2022 at 1:48 am

    Thank you for another useful and intelligent tip

    I think you are measuring and transferring the angle, you just aren’t reading or setting a number. In many cases just reading, transcribing and setting the number can introduce errors. Story sticks are a good example of measuring without writing.



  7. Hansang Bae on September 13, 2022 at 1:52 am

    Yeah, I picked one up from Taytools and the protractor. Simple but useful and effective.



  8. Pete Nelson on September 13, 2022 at 1:54 am

    As always, great tips on tool usage.

    A bevel square is mandatory in my day to day tool bag on the job. The beauty of an ‘end screw’ model is when you are working in situ on a job and clearance is an issue. Tighten then register on saw and cut said angle or even mark on scrap with pencil as a go to reference in case you bump it.



  10. csimet on September 13, 2022 at 2:01 am

    A must-have… and cheap to buy.

    My tip… I use it to transfer angles between shop tools like my table saw and miter saw when they need to be setup the same. Works for just about any pair of saws. Like you said, no measuring needed.

    I’ve used my t-bevel to adjust my bandsaw fence during setup to compensating for blade drift.



  12. Rich Sparkman on September 13, 2022 at 2:06 am

    I use it for measuring the angles when I’m putting up molding after all what wall is actually 90° to another wall



  13. MC's Creations on September 13, 2022 at 2:06 am

    Yeah, I definitely need one of those! 😬
    Thanks for the tips, dude! 😊
    Stay safe there with your family! 🖖😊

    I bought one from HD that had a digital read out. I knew it wasn’t critical to the use of the T-bevel gauge but I thought it would be cool to have. The more I used that T-bevel gauge, the more I ignored the digital read out.

    I purchased that T-bevel gauge to set the angle on my miter gauge so that I could cut stair treads. Anyone who has done stair treads knows they are never square so the T-bevel gauge came in handy. I would determine the angles with a stair tread tool, transfer the angles to the stair tread, then line the T-bevel gauge to the mark I made on the stair tread. I then took the T-bevel gauge over the table saw to set the miter gauge. In theory, this should have worked. However, there were too many opportunities for error, transferring all those marks, and I never got a perfect cut. I ended up buying a laminate flooring cutter instead. Lol

    Love the T-bevel gauge though. Using it really opened my eyes to how valuable it can be.

    Great stuff. Also love the shallow depth of field. 😊



  16. Matt Elias on September 13, 2022 at 2:08 am

    Solid recommendation. I have the Wood River that you displayed and no complaints about it. I would further recommend having two, mainly because once you’re into non-90 angles, then you have to contend with the complimentary angles for 90 as well as 180, and moving the gauge introduces the chance for error.

    Awesome tips,



  18. Allen Bullard on September 13, 2022 at 2:14 am

    Just used the hell outa’ mine! Made a step stool requiring m&t joints at 14*. Set up my pantorouter to cut the tenons perfectly. The folding half of the step stool used 45* tenons. Used a small speed square for those.



  19. Calvin A. Allen on September 13, 2022 at 2:19 am

    You deserve more subscribers. Just saying.



  20. Ryan Wood on September 13, 2022 at 2:21 am

    100% agree its a invaluable tool that comes in handy on most projects. Thanks for sharing much love from the UK
