Speed square basics – How to use one

For a full breakdown of the many potential uses of speed squares, just check out Make Build Modify’s highly informative video below! Every single feature is intricately detailed, perfectly illustrating just how crucial this tool can be. After watching, you’re never going to want to take on any construction or repair project without one ever again.

With a speed square, you can quickly measure a line perpendicular to the edge of a wood, accurately mark 45° angles, and find different common angles such as those in roof rafters and stair stingers.

Unlike other squares, there is an open area in the middle where it also works like a line scribing tool. Many thanks to the video creator ‘Make Build Modify’.

    You need to figure out the length of your rafter and also know what your heel height is. Once you have this, cut your to angle then measure your rafter. Now mark your angle and on that angle measure your heel down and that is where your birds mouth will be.
