Also the package has a sticker that touts "New Laser Engraved Accuracy" but nothing on the tool seems engraved, by laser or otherwise. The scale stickers are clearly non engraved stickers.
Extra disappointing since this seems to have been a problem for years based on the reviews.
When the packaging for my recent purchase included a bold sticker, "New! Laser accuracy!", I expected to see degree marks laser engraved into the metal, but it had the same basic construction as used for years: an opposing set of printed plastic appliques.
I called Starrett to challenge their marketing claim, but the Engineer stood up to it. He said that laser tooling is now used in the placement of the marks. I didn't grill him to learn whether they use a laser index to apply the same pre-printed decal, or if the marks are printed onto the decal matrix using a laser printing process after it is affixed.
Either way, they have apparently taken a technological step toward putting the accuracy issues behind them. My protractor has not yet had the trial by fire of the kitchen trim rework, but it has shown to be as accurate as I am capable of measuring with my other shop tools. In my opinion, if your mitre saw is properly dialed in, you'll get the solution you need from this tool.
This protractor is a solid tool, accurate, and a pleasure to use. I use it for setting table saw fence and miter gauge alignment, and I check the lineup of my Festool MFT track, and any angle that needs stetting I always check for square and with this Starrett 4041-12 it is a snap. I keep it within reach and always verify my setups. There nothing better than knowing that you are dead on every time.
I have other devices that serve the same function, even digital ones but tins is the one sitting right where I am working, always, and I trust it implicitly it does not let me make mistakes. I think one reason that I choose this is that it just feels right in your hands the movement is firm and smooth and you know you can trust it.
Although the movement is quite firm and retains it's setting well, it can be prone to accidental movement as there is no physical lock so you need be careful if you are taking the measurement to another place, this is not a problem as it holds the setting as long as you don't somehow bump the protractor and move the setting. I don't even worry about that as there is nothing wrong with working carefully, in fact that is a plus you ought to be paying attention to the job at hand.
I am most satisfied with this item and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get serious when dong setups in the shop. Don't accept some crappy plastic substitute, ignore the price, pay the man and be happy knowing you will know the angles for years to come.
But it does exactly what it advertises for cuts, and does it very well. Just beware if you are looking for a simple angle measuring protractor that give absolute values of a wall angle (which is needed frequently for tables or apps that solve for crown molding cuts - where you enter the spring angle of the crown and the absolute wall angle and it gives the miter and bevel settings for your miter saw to cut crown molding)
