he Swanson® Framing Wizard® is an innovative masterpiece that combines five tools into one: a framing square, a try square, a miter square, an angle finder, and a saw guide. This compact folding square is constructed of high-grade anodized aluminum and includes precision laser-etched markings for the ultimate accuracy. An adjustable layout tab slides along the blade, making it simple to measure angles and mark ridge cuts. This tool also includes a helpful instruction booklet with diagrams for using the Swanson® One-Number® Method for common, hip, and valley rafters. A hinged mechanism features an easily adjustable set screw (Allen wrench included) that allows the user to bring the square back to a perfect 90º if the tool ever becomes out of square. The Framing Wizard® folds down easily to fit into a standard toolbox and is the only portable framing tool for 12 in., 16 in., and 24 in. on-center layout. The Framing Wizard® is truly a square that does it all, making it a must-have for any toolbox.
