Question about Swanson Speedlite Level Square
I have a Swanson Square and need to know how to use it to figure the degree of angle to 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.
