Protractors are tools that measure specific angles, which allow users to create and replicate desired angles. The tools include a stationary base and movable rule, usually connected by a scale that may be digital or manual. They are useful in a wide range of applications, such as measuring crown molding and installing baseboards. A protractor can be included as part of a combination set, along with a center and a square. A center accurately locates the center of a circle or cylindrical rod. A square is used to scribe right angles and parallel lines, calibrate miter and table saws, or as a miter, height gauge, or depth gauge.
