Question about Swanson S0107 "Big 12" Die - Cast Aluminum 12" Speed Square

Open Question

I just bought a Swanson 12" Speed Square model S0107. How do I put it together? What are the parts for? I know how to use a standard square but this one has a sliding bar and wing nuts and Hex barrel nuts? How do I assemble it and what are the extra parts for?

SOURCE: 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 many square foot of floor panels do I need to cover a room 12 foot x 6 inches x 13 feet in square eet?


To convert your 2 dimensions to square feet you have to multiply them together.
12.5 x 13 = 162.5 square feet.
You do not give the size of floor panels you want to use
To find out how many panels you neeed, divide 162.5 by the square footage of the panel
eg, 12" x 12" panels are (1x1) 1 square foot so you would need 162.5 of them.
24" x 24" panels are (2x2) 4 square foot so you would need 41panels

When I try to cut a 45 it seems to be cutting a little more than a 45. how do I adjust it?


Make sure the blade is 90 deg vertical to the saw table. Make sure the indicator is set approprately. Raise the blade just enough to clear the table/base. Place a swanson speed square against the fence and blade. Make sure the indicator is at 90 degrees. Here you might want to tilt the square and check that the complete blade is flush against the sqaure as high up as possible. Lay the square back flat on the table and pull the blade toward you as much as possible. The teeth on the blade should ride against the square extented completely out.

Now set the square against the fence with the 45 degree angle coming away from the table and set the blade on the 45 deg mark on the insicator scale.
The blade should touch the square all the way out fully extented.

Or just experiment with some scrap and check

Sounds like you already have it figured out. Drill a round hole first then use a small square file to make the correct sized square. Depending on what the sheared piece looked like, you can find some square stock at the hardware store.
