Features

Roofus combines the features of a combination square, bevel, protractor, level and speed square in one easy to use tool. The blade can be extended or retracted to the required depth and rotated to the required angle before being held in position using the pivot lock. Alternatively the square lock can be used to set the blade at 90 degrees before locking the depth with the pivot lock. The front has common degree markings whilst the back is calibrated for hip and valley work.

Pivot

The pivot allows the ruler to rotate and slide in and out

Pivot Lock

The pivot lock holds the ruler at the desired angle and depth

Square Lock

Seat Edge

Development

Development

Born out of frustration with existing tools, Roofus has been developed over several years by an experienced carpenter.  Dozens of prototypes have been made along the way to try out new features and iron out any bugs.  Roofus has been used on-site daily in a variety of building tasks. Several units are now being evaluated in workplaces by professional carpenters and builders. The feedback has been amazing!  The design is now undergoing a final revision to make it easy to manufacture and is now close to market release.
