Tajima Slant Tools

When you need to know the rise and run now, don’t calculate it — directly measure it quickly with Tajima’s slant tool. Their slant tool allows you to quickly measure, verify, or copy surface angle and pitch.

You adjust the easy-to-read angle scale with a large thumb screw on the handle. When the bubble vial reads level, you’re at the set angle. The angle scale ranges from 0 to 130° in 2° increments. The rise scale ranges from 0 to 0.8 in 0.05 increments, and above 0.8 it reads in fixed increments up to 2.0.

Tajima makes two models: the Slant 100 and the Slant AL200. They manufacture both tools from impact-resistant, heavy-gauge ABS plastic, but the AL200 also features an aluminum frame with a magnetic base.

Tajima includes conversion charts and reference graphics in the package. The Slant 100 and the Slant AL200 retail for $30 and $40 respectively, but if you look around you can find them for $20 and $30.

    Tajima makes nice stuff – but slope pins and a Checkpoint Mag-Base/Level are easier (no calculations – and the pitch is perfect.

    It’s funny Fred, I was actually going to write about the Checkpoint slope pins because Checkpoint looks like they make real quality tools, but the I was feeling a little lazy and didn’t want to talk about the level and the base which are required to even use the slope pins. That when I found the Tajima stuff.

    There are several inclinometers out there. The Wixey digital readout for setting table saw blades – is essentially one too – but suffers from having a very short base – so a carpenter might find it a poor choice for setting the slope of something that had surface irregularities.

    CheckPoint (Precision Designed Products Inc.) are really first rate products and we use their levels for setting stub-outs – aligning stud holes etc.

    Tajima makes nice stuff but their tape measures are no longer made in Japan….they are made in China……I rep’d Tajima for awhile here in Texas and that was a sore point when Tajima switched over to China

    This Tajima SLT-100 is perfect for me as an erector and pipe fabricator. I alway get my angles and slopes right and fast
