Hi. Roofus is a revolutionary carpentry tool now available for order via our crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Please watch our YouTube video, read more below then visit Indiegogo to secure your own Roofus.
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.
The scale on the rear of Roofus is calibrated for Hip and Valley rafters
Roofus comes in standard models moulded from high strength polycarbonate/ABS and pro models milled from 7075 grade aluminium. Rulers are die cut 420 grade stainless steel. US variants include an internal rise/run scale in addition to the external degree scale. US models are fitted with a 14" ruler, non-US models are fitted with a 350mm ruler.
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.
