I don't own this but it looks really cool! Would it be useful??? Do you own one?

I think it may double as a sextant if you get lost in your shop....

A universal bevel protractor will measure an angle to within a couple minutes of a degree. They work well for doing accurate layout work, but are probably a bit of overkill for that. They can also be used to set a part in a vise or on an angle plate to a very precise angle, but take a good amount of skill to use effectively. In short, they tend to spend more time in their cases than in actual use, so I would suggest spending the money on a sine bar and a set of gauge blocks instead. It's a much better way to set an angle.

I can relate to that, lol.  I'm retired now, and am downsizing from 15,000 sq. ft. in California, to hopefully a 350 sq. ft. garage overseas; that is " if " I win my appeal against the Planning Department, as they consider 350 excessively large.  Sad

I have one but had to get one with a cheater lens so I could actually read it. Couldn't afford a sine bar and a good gauge block set. Still can't afford it actually. Big Grin

Now that I'm retired, and interested in model engineering, I've been searching to replace tools I rarely used but foolishly sold years ago. Guess I'm a dinosaur, but to me, the far east products on the market are not worth acknowledging. Fortunately, I've been having a good run of luck lately in finding some quality old school machinist tools, and have acquired a set of Hilger & Watts precision angle gages, a Verdict cylindrical square, and a complete 83 piece set of Harbots gage blocks to complete my metrology list.
