A very handy dual-purpose tool which can be used either for the measurement or transferring of angles or, with the graduated rule in the right angle position, as a gauge for measuring the depth of holes or recesses. The rule is dual calibrated in metric and imperial and the maximum depth is 150mm(6").

Almost worthlessThere is so much slop in the pivot and rule slide that its just not credible as an angle gauge. The lock off doesn't work very well either and, as the previous reviewer says, scope for measuring angles under 20 degrees is a bit limited. Doesn't look quite like the picture either.

Not A Good BuyI bought this as a measurement tool where I need to know and mark angles of less than 10° with reasonable accuracy and this particular protractor/depth gauge fails completely. The scale on the left bottom is 2.58 mm away from the edge and on the right side it is 1.7 mm away from the edge. The rule is not nice and clear as in the picture above, but is rather difficult to read and in addition it appears to have something like rust on it as well. The mm scale on the reverse side is much better though, but still with some discoloration. I set the depth gauge to 1 inch and measured it with the depth gauge on my vernier caliper and it was only 0.945 inches. This tool is meant to be used as a measuring device and it fails big-time. I don't know at this time whether to bin it or send it back and get another one or different make, but once burnt....
