The Fowler Mini-MAG Protractor 54-422-450-1 is an electronic protractor with 360° digital display of any angle and embedded magnets on the sides and bottom with 5 lb. pull. The display inverts for reading ease. The protractor has a measuring range of 360° (4 x 90°) and a hold feature that freezes the displayed reading while retaining the original zero reference information. The protractor can also be set to read absolute zero, for use as a leveling device. It has a resolution of .05° and an accuracy of + or - .2°.
|Measuring range||360° (4 x 90°)|
|Accuracy||+ or - .2°|
|Power source||9V battery|
|Dimensions||2.375 x 2.375 x 1.375 inches (H x W x D)|
H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.
Protractors are tools that measure specific angles, which allow users to create and replicate desired angles. The tools include a stationary base and movable rule, usually connected by a scale that may be digital or manual. They are useful in a wide range of applications, such as measuring crown molding and installing baseboards. A protractor can be included as part of a combination set, along with a center and a square. A center accurately locates the center of a circle or cylindrical rod. A square is used to scribe right angles and parallel lines, calibrate miter and table saws, or as a miter, height gauge, or depth gauge.
