150mm Shinwa Sliding T-Bevel

BSW-150 - $13.80 ea.


BSW-150

Also called a Bevel Gauge, we like Shinwas because they are narrow for their length, just over half an inch. They are quite accurate, having machined edges on the Stainless Steel blade and stock. They are sturdy and simple, and if you want to lock the blade any harder than finger tight, you slip a quarter in the slot on the brass knob and twist. They are a very good value and the blade stows in the stock so it won't get bent or dinged while in your tool box.

These bevels are the perfect for all kinds of boat building applications. Use the Shinwa to match an angle on a drawing, such as the bulkhead/bottom angle, then use set your table saw to that for cutting the bulkhead. If you need to make a gusset or a breasthook, use the bevel gauge to find the angle where the piece will go then mark the wood for cutting or use it to set the saw angle. Not shop should be without one.
