I've owned a Swanson Speed Square for as long as I've been able to run a saw and have always wondered what all those things meant on it. When I found out that there was this book on it, I knew I had to have one.
While made for framing carpentry, a speed square can be indispensable in a lot of measuring and marking situations.
The speed square was invented in by Albert Swanson. Swanson was a carpenter in a small town outside of Chicago. He wanted to create a device to make it easier to quickly determine roof pitches.
After he created the speed square, other carpenters began asking him for one, and the Swanson Tool Company was born. Speed Square is actually a trademarked name, but like Kleenex, it is often used as the generic name for this class of tool. This video clearly runs through most of the key features of the speed square and how one might use it in day-to-day angle measuring and cutting, and in determining pitches. Marking — The most commonly used application of the speed square is as a Try square.
The tool has a lipped fence along one right-angled edge that allows you to hold the square firmly against a board. This ruler is used for measuring cuts. To easily scribe a rip or trim line along a board, you simply hold your pencil in the desired notch and run the fence along the edge of the board to make an accurate mark down its length.
You can also use the right angle of the square to check internal angles for accuracy on a square. This is accomplished by use of the main protractor and two specialty protractor angle guides on the inside of the tool. The above video shows one example of how to use a speed square for finding rafter pitches.
Explaining the entire process for doing this quickly becomes too convoluted for this overview.
