Default Digital Protractor

Here's a pretty good price on a digital protractor at Lee Valley Tools:

Digital Protractor - Lee Valley Tools

Soon the prices of the digital stuff is going to be less than the little plastic protractor you carried to school in your pencil box...

Ron,

That's a pretty good size. I have Bosch version. It is pricey, but the biggest issue I have with it is that it's too large for anything except rough carpentry.

Regards,

Dan.

"Accurate to within ±0.3°"

That isn't nearly good enough, except for rough work.
The Bosch is ±0.1° and it's only good enough for molding.
