General Tools' sliding T-Bevel listed as a ‘Top 100' tool
The 2011 list marks the first annual “TOH Top 100” and includes items for people who love old houses and appreciate new and interesting ways to fix them up. According to the magazine, the editors hunted high and low to find the most unique, helpful and coolest home products in seven categories: Kitchen, Bath, Tools, Building Products, Outdoor Living, Home Tech and Finishing Touches. The Digital Sliding T-Bevel is included in the Tools category.
General’s tool is used 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.
“This isn’t just a list of new products-they’re products with real value,” says Scott Omelianuk, Editor of This Old House. “We worked hard to find things that were truly unique and would make a difference to our readers and their families, either through long term savings or ease of use or products that just plain surprised us.”
The complete list is featured in the November/December issue of This Old House can be found online at here; the T-bevel is profiled here.
