A professional drywall contractor probably won’t need Johnson Level’s Rockripper drywall scoring square, but the DIY’er that only occasionally hangs a few sheets of drywall might find it useful. Perforations every 1/16″ in the blade accept a utility knife point for scoring. This makes ripping drywall much easier and more accurate for those of us who haven’t mastered the skill.
This 24″ T-square features a 1/8″ thick tempered-aluminum blade anodized for corrosion protection. Johnson Level screens large black graduations every 1/8″ on the blade and thermally bonds the markings. They foam-mold the head from high-impact plastic that slides easily against the drywall.
A round handgrip in the center of the head and guides to either side help you keep the square on the drywall as you score. For those of us who constantly misplace our tools, the Rockripper’s orange color makes it easy to find on the job site.
Johnson Level suggests a retail price of $33 for the Rockripper drywall scoring square, but street pricing starts at $20.
