General's Digital Sliding T-Bevel is the first and only digital T-bevel on the market. Designed for professionals and DIYers, it is the perfect tool for measuring, storing and transferring inside and outside angles when doing construction and fine carpentry; building cabinets, furniture and picture frames; installing tile and more. It operates as both a T-bevel and a protractor. It saves time and increases accuracy as it takes the guesswork out of angle duplication and eliminates the problems associated with analog readings and manual measurement transfer.

This innovative precision specialty tool also received a 2011 Popular Mechanics Editor's Choice Award and is the newest addition to General's family of digital layout tools, all of which were designed in-house by General's engineering team.
