Lufkin Protractor

Size 160 x 100 x 0.25 mm. Length of fence 178 mm

Angle divisions are in 1/2° and 1°. Has an adjustable and removable screw-on stop bar for running along edges. The angles read both from left to right and from right to left - in both cases 0° - 180°/180° - 0° and 0° - 90°/90° - 0°.

The pack includes the protractor, a screw on bar that allows you to rapidly align the protractor along an edge and a 0.5mm propelling pencil.


The protractor is made from a very fine 0.25mm thick stainless steel and is a beautiful measuring instrument.


Zoomed in you can clearly see that the protrator has a course grid in the centre, then an outer 1° division and an outer 1/2° division.

In the centre is a pattern that allows alignment with existing straight lines, circles and centres.


Price: 40 euros approx. 28 (August 2015) from: http://www.fine-tools.com/incra.html

Conclusion

You may not need this often, but when you do this is invaluable and an accurate way to mark angles down to 1/2°. The protractor is very thin and so you need to be very careful using and storing it.
