Default Angle meter

Hi all,
Just following a recommendation from a forum subscriber.

I'm using this Angle Meter, borrowed from my next door neighbor (and pretty much ruined by now) to check my brick angles as I place them. I've been working without shims, except for the occasional time when I tamp the bricks down too far while setting them, then I use the shim as a wedge to boost it back up again.

By this method, at least so far, I'm able to hand butter the bricks with mortar and do away with a grout bag. It works really well.

I have no idea where to buy something like this. My neighbor can't remember where he bought it. Try Google????

I was a carpenter for over 10 years and I never saw one of these before.

Nifty gadget!

Would of been handy to have for carpentry and oven building!

Here are a couple links to purchase one.

Find Angle Finder Magnetic Base, 4 1/8" and other Measuring Tools at Aubuchon Hardware

Central Tools Angle Finder with Magnetic Base (CEN6494)

Cheers

Also called a goniometer at least in medical practice.

Just a note. I've used Starrett measuring tools for years, and they are among the best and most accurate out there. Don't have the angle gauge, though I probably should, but I do have a two foot and four foot level from them, plus a miter square, a tiny box square and some other stuff. Highly recommended.

Jim

Inclinometer - not sure about medical applications, although sounds like there could be some.

Can be had on eBay here for £15-£25 depending on the version.
