At last week’s 2011 AWFS Fair in Las Vegas, General Tools & Instruments introduced an industry first for sliding T-bevels: digital readout. The new Digital Sliding T-Bevel (Model 828) could take the guesswork out of measuring angles when cutting miters, installing trim, building picture frames, and more. It features an easy-to-read LCD display that can measure inside or outside angles from 0 to 360 degrees. It is accurate to +/-0.3 degrees and features a resolution of +/-.05 degrees. A single button push can also report the complementary angle to the angle being measured, or you can zero the blade at any opening to measure a relative angle from there. An 8-in. stainless-steel blade nests into the tool’s plastic handle and locks to any angle with a steel knurled knob. An auto shut-off extends the tool’s estimated two-year battery life. General Tools reports that the Digital Sliding T-Bevel will be available August 1 and will sell for $34.99.
