Handy Folding Multi-Tool
It does the job of a level, square, bevel, and ruler.
"It does some things that you can't do with any other tool," says John Giza, president of Giza Industrial. "Best of all, it folds up to fit in your pocket."
The device can be used to do the following: measure odd or awkwardly shaped items, square 90¦ angles, find level, measure any mitre joint, linear measuring (as a stiff ruler to extend your reach 24-in.), determine the pitch of a roof from a distance above or below the rafter, gable end, etc., measure roof pitches over 12/12 or 45¦ (just fold over the horizontal section of your RascalRule to 90¦ from the level bubble), as a stair gauge, and as a bevel.
RascalRule is made from rugged fiberglass/mineral-filled nylon composite for strength, stability and durability. All of the metal components of the RascalRule are stainless steel except for the rivet, which is composed of a rust resistant alloy.
According to Giza, RascalRule is suitable for use under adverse conditions such as those found in the mining industry (this is what Giza first designed it for).
The tool offers Imperial (inch), metric (centimeter), degree (for measuring angles) and percentage grade measurements (for measuring low angle slopes).
The RascalRule has the inch scale going from left to right on one side of the rule, while on the other side, the inch scale goes from right to left. This is to help when measuring off a center reference line.
For added convenience, the device is designed to "click" on the most commonly used mitre angles of 0, 45, 90, 135, 180 degrees. These pre-set angles make work go quicker and easier.
If need be, the RascalRule will also stand on its own by simply opening one of the arms of the rule to create a stable base. To keep it handy, it can be clipped on to your clothing while working by opening and closing the arms onto the bib of your cover-alls.
This device comes with a one year guarantee (under normal usage conditions) and sells for $24.95 (Can.) plus $5 S&H, regardless of size of order.
The Rascal Rule is also available in a metal version, and custom imprinting of either type is optional.
Giza says his popular, multi-purpose tool has been sold on every continent.
