The replacement is accurate! Note that this isn't a "precision scale," as the marking for reading the angle is itself is about 0.5mm wide and that presents wiggle-room in the potential for mis-reading the scale very slightly, but it gets you in the ballpark, and on the replacement it actually lands on 90 when measured against a machinist's square.
It's a solid little tool, and very simple. Provided that the scale is marked accurately, there's really not much that can go wrong with this tool aside from being crushed/bent/destroyed through negligence or accident. It is low-tech and perfect for work where "good enough" certainly is; I'd advise against using it to design a space shuttle or something where the difference between 45 and 44 degrees might be a life-or-death situation, though I don't suspect folks doing such things are looking to pinch pennies on angle gauges. It was a bummer that the first one's scale wasn't precise but given how quickly and easily the issue was rectified with absolutely no fuss, I don't feel I can exactly fault the item for that sour first experience. I'd say that if you're in the market for an item like this and trying to keep the cost down, go ahead and take a shot if you're buying from a company that's easy-breezy with returns/replacements: in my experience, if you catch any accuracy issues quickly Amazon and/or General Tools will take good care of you.
Look elsewhere... as I will do. The sharp edges wouldn’t even make it a useful or safe toy. I rarely EVER write such a negative review as I research before I buy. Apparently there is a lot of false reviews on this.
I gave my larger protractor to my wife, for her arts-and-crafts stuff...and needed to replace it, so I bought this one...but if you want a PERMANENT protractor that is ACES when it comes to being tough, and helping with accurate mark-ups, you NEED this tool in your box!
This looked like it would work, and was metal. So we gave it a try.
Love that unlike the others we were using, the standard arched plastic ones, it's easy to draw the angle with a single placement of the protractor and a single movement of the pencil.
The thumb screw tightens for people who need that to hold it steady while using it.
I was worried the size would be a bit awkward, but it's proven to not be the case.
Can't beat it for the price, best protractor I've ever had.

-> All of my Starrett & Mitutoyo rules have much nicer finishes; I never even thought of needing to sand them.
Also, angle mark on arm is slightly off center, doesn't line up at 90deg; and bar is hard to lock tightly.
