(New York, NY) There’s a new breed of T-bevel available that professional carpenters, woodworkers and craftspeople—not to mention DIYers—can rely on to save time and increase accuracy. The new Digital Sliding T-Bevel Gauge (Model #828) [Patent Pending] from General Tools & Instruments (General®) not only takes the guesswork out of angle duplication, but also eliminates the problems associated with analog readings and manual measurement transfer.


Designed in-house by General’s engineering team, the innovative Digital Sliding T-Bevel Gauge is the first and only digital T-bevel to hit the market. It is the perfect tool for measuring, storing and transferring inside and outside angles when doing fine carpentry; building cabinets, furniture and picture frames; installing tile and more.


This highly accurate digital instrument offers easy-to-read angle measurements via a large LCD display and integrates an 8" stainless steel blade with a steel locking knob. The digital T-Bevel features a resolution of +/-0.05° and can measure angles ranging from 0° to 360° in any plane to an accuracy of +/-0.3°, making the instrument ideal for a variety of applications. The instrument also features auto shut-off and a long two-year battery life.


Practical function buttons make this precision specialty tool ultra-convenient for setting and transferring measurements instantly.

·         Zero button: resets the calibration to ensure accurate readings every time

·         Hold/Reverse button: a short press locks in the measurement; an extended press reverses the angle

·         Flip button: inverts the display 180° for reading when the tool is upside down



See this new precision instrument at Booth 6617 at NHS 2011, May 10 - 12 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The Digital Sliding T-Bevel Gauge will be in stock and available for order.
