Post Level Square
Say you take two rafter squares and you attach them with a hinge...
We were made aware of this odd little multi-tasker by reader David (who is also the inventor). The Post Level Square a combination of a rafter square and a post level and it looks like it could be pretty useful, particularly if you've got a deck that needs to be built. From what we can tell of the pictures, when it's in rafter square mode, it stays closed with magnets and functions just like a rafter square and when it's opened up, you just wrap it around a post.
Because the post level is such a specific tool with a single use, it's nice to have its functionality wrapped into something more universal so you're not buying something just to have it sit around. But because it's plastic, the Swanson-dedicated pros might steer clear of this one. For the DIY crowd though, the dual tool functionality is a good idea.
