Bench Dog always seems to produce the simplest yet most intuitive tools. We wrote about their Pro-Cut portable saw guide before, and now we’ve come across their Trim-Loc casement installer tool. Slick stuff.
Think of it as a portable jig for trim work. It lets you quickly mark 45-degree and 90-degree angles and has a slot to hook your tape measure in, which makes measuring by yourself a whole lot easier.
If you’re working by yourself, you can use a couple of 6d tack nails to attach it to a board — instantly providing another set of hands for the job. It also acts as a jig to hold the trim in position while you nail it there for good.
Street pricing starts at $20.
