Is there an instruction manual

I bought the stanley roofing square and its different to the one i got taught on at college. I used a square with the angles along the small side. This one doesn't have it, so need to brush up on it before next week when i've got a killer roof to do. Got a mate coming over toadey to go throgh it but a a manual wouldn't be a bad thing

How do I read the roof pitch on the Stanley 46-071 square


If you have access to your attic measure out 12" from edge, then measure straight up from there to roof and that will give you the pitch.

What do all the numbers on a framing square mean and how do read them?


The numbers on the side of a framing square are used for many things. The small leg allows you to quickly lay out a wall on16" centers. The other rows of numbers help you figure the correct sizes to cut for hip roofs (roofs that have slope on all four sides.)You can get an instruction Manual from Stanley or it may be availabile on the net. Google (framing square instructions)

Unable to make a straight cut with saw. Tried adjusting tension, lowered blade, made sure blade aligned properly and did not feed too quickly. HEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPP! Thanks in advance.


Hello, I think that the problem you are having is called "drift" . each blade will cut different than the last. The way I was taught to cure this goes as follows.
-take fence off off table(or just move over)
-get a good square piece of material appx. 1x3 and mark a straight line about 1/2" from edge the full length of the board.
-with out the fence cut the board along the line appx. 1/2 the length.
-shut off saw WITH board in it.
-use a angle finder along the edge of the board, set angle finder
-remove board and put the fence back on.
-now slide the angle finder up to the fence, you should see that the angle is different than the fence (this is the DRIFT ), adjust the fence to the angle finder( I know that the smaller saws usalley don't have this adjustment ) you will have to find a way i.e. shim etc.

This is a very common problem but once you get the idea it is a easy fix
Remember: A guy taught me and I taught you, pass it along thats what we do.LOL
Hope it helped.

How do you determan the 1 to 12 angle marks on the square to find the right compound cuts cheers


The 1 to 12 marks are the rise of the roof pitch in 12 feet. 1 would be 1 foot rise in 12 feet, 2 would be a 2 foot rise in 12 feet and so on to the max of 12 foot rise in 12 feet.

Directions on how to use a square to cut common rafters we have a stanley squ and no manual, on use


A standard square is used primarily for drawing 90 degree angles. Simply hold the fat side of your square firmly against the length of rafter. The skinny side of the square should be lying accross the rafter, forming a 90 degree angle with the side. Use a pencil to draw a line along the edge of the square and use this line as a guide while sawing the rafters.

Need to know how to figure a rafter cut


Assuming you already know the angle you require, take the edge with the level on it(if you have that model) or the side that hangs over and hook it on the edge of the board. If you look at the top, on the 90 degree end, it says "pivot", and that is where you will spin the square around. You read on the 45 degree end that was hooked to the board for you angle. If you are trying to cut a rafter at a specific pitch such as a 6/12 you will spin the square around until the 6 on the Common scale lines up with the edge of the board. The Hip/Val scale is for cutting hips and valleys for the roof structure.

How you use a stanley center square #46-101


No need for a manual. Just hold it so that the two edges of the "vee" line up with the circumference of the circle and scribe a line along the steel rule. Then turn approx. 90 degrees and scribe another line along the rule that intersects the first. The point of intersection is exactly the center of the circle. This tools only function is to find the center of circles.
