  • Hundredths of a degree on Facetron Protractor

    Posted by Jeff Kavan on February 19, 2023 at 12:40 am

    How do I set my Facetron protractor to cut to hundredths of a degree to accurately cut to a diagram that list those numbers. Like Greg Glenn’s “NightWing”, where it shows to set the protractor to 26.77° or 33.66°?
    I know the Ultra-Tec has a digital angle dial that can show those angles. But since I have a Facetron, how do I pull that off?

    Most things won’t require that type of accuracy but may have slightly less refraction. Best is to get close, like width of line less then 26.8 for 26.77 for example. The CAD programs will show it that tight, but your eyes will never know.
