NEW YORK, NEW YORK
-- Thereâs a new breed of T-bevel available that professional woodworkers, carpenters and craftspeopleânot to mention DIYersâcan rely on to save time and increase accuracy. The new Digital Sliding T-Bevel (Model #828) [Patent Pending] from General Tools & Instruments (GeneralÂ®) takes the guesswork out of angle measurement and duplication, and eliminates the problems associated with interpreting analog readings and transferring manual measurements. The Digital Sliding T-Bevel is a 2011 Popular Mechanics Editorâs Choice Award winner. It is the newest addition to Generalâs family of digital layout tools, all of which were designed in-house by Generalâs engineering team.
The innovative Digital Sliding T-Bevel is the first and only digital T-bevel to hit the market. It is the perfect tool for measuring, storing and transferring inside and outside angles when doing fine carpentry; building cabinets, furniture and picture frames; installing tile and more. It operates as both a digital T-bevel and a protractor.
This highly accurate precision specialty tool offers easy-to-read angle measurements via a large LCD display and integrates an 8 in. stainless steel blade with a steel locking knob. The Digital T-Bevel features a resolution of +/-0.05Â° and can measure angles ranging from 0Â° to 360Â° in any plane to an accuracy of +/-0.3Â°, making it ideal for a variety of applications. The tool also features practical function buttons (zero calibration, hold/reverse, flip), auto shut-off and a two-year battery life.
Generalâs Family of Digital Layout Tools also includes:
5" and 10" Digital Angle Finders (Model Nos. 822 and 823)
Digital Precision Protractor (Model #1702)
