Reader Kurt clued us in to this tool that slipped by us in Makezine a few days ago, and it looks sweet. Called the “Angle-izer,” it’s a series of slotted rulers hooked together with locking wheels to allow you to match angles and shapes, then lock the rulers in place to duplicate the positioning. This totally strikes me as the kind of thing that’d be awesome to have around the shop.
It’s avaialbe from Sporty’s Tool Shop for $24.50, but we found it for $19 via at least one other merchant via Froogle. Hell, I’m gonna order one.
FWIW, it also ships with a CD-ROM loaded with (Windows) software “for cutting parts to fit arches or circular patterns.”
