Default Orange Triangles

Hey Folks ...
has anyone ever seen these types of orange triangles before? If so, could you direct me to the manufacturer or retailer?

Or just rafter square. Just as a tip, make sure the material they are made of is the thicker variety. With the cheap thinner ones the calibration marks effect the straight edge such that when you draw a line it comes out with bumps all along it at those calibration marks.

Thanx Stripes ...
I was just surfing the net checking out the different types, and that's something I'll pay close attention to. I want something strong with very little tendency of warping.

Please Note:
to perfectly honest with everyone, I've never heard of tool called a 'rafter angle square', I just thought it was actually an 'orange triangle'.
Another good reason for joining RCU!

Here is a 9 inch rafter square made of some indestructible plastic. I bought it because it has a broad foot so that it can stand by itself when aligning tail surfaces.

What ever you call it, appears they are being used as a magnetic building board system, I would like to know about the magnets with the hold down bar?

Would not mind adding a number of those magnets and triangles to my magnetic building board.

Thank you Sooper That is perfect, now I can add some variety to my board. Mine is a commercial unit but don,t know who sold them, got it with a buy out I made from a local gentleman.

I like it for some types of projects not all and am a little short on hardware and magnets.

Thanks agine

John
