    javier josefides 3 месяца назад DENNIS DAVID it is very sad. You are destroying your marriage with this addiction. Instead of enjoying your time with the woman that God gave you your are giving all your energy to an empty illusion. Reptent from your sins and ask Jesus to take the control of your life. He can give you freedom from that destructive addiction and make your life new again.

  • rhino ranch
    rhino ranch 1 месяц назад Your demonstration is very good, however, your math is not correct. 12/12 pitch = 45 degrees. 45 divided by 12 = 3.75. Therefore, 1 pitch = 3.75 degrees. If you measured 13 degrees with your plumb bob, the pitch would be 13 divided by 3.75 = 3.4666 pitch or approximately 3.5/12 pitch. You also misstated that 3/12 pitch is "one third ratio." That is not correct. 3/12 = 1:4 . Hope I am not nitpicking. 'cause overall the demonstration is very good. I don't think many guys have ever done the math to determine degrees equivalent to pitch. Thanks.

  • James Boardwine
    James Boardwine 5 месяцев назад @Jeffery Brown if I remember your comment right you said lay out a rafter with a speed square and I said you lay out Rafters with a framing square of course everybody does it on their phone now all I was saying was you don't lay out a rafter with a speed square if you're laying out a rafter and all I do is custom homes and 90% of them is all hand frame roof
  • Jeffery Brown
    Jeffery Brown 5 месяцев назад @James Boardwine Who needs a framing square to lay out rafters anymore? I have a calculator on my phone that let's me figure it out in seconds...all I need to do is make the lines for the cuts, which is all you need the speed square for in the first place. Valley rafters? Sure, I could use the framing square to cut them on the ground but why? The only way the young guys learn to put the roofs together is to make them lay out the valley boards and ridges and measure the rafters. What good does it do me to know everything and not teach anyone how things go together. Framing squares were required skills back in the day when houses were hand framed but it's rare that houses are hand framed anymore in the days of trusses for every roof you can imagine. PLus, you can't get the energy ratings you need using conventional framing versus trusses so you have to spray foam the roofs, which is 3 times more than batt. It's incredible rare that houses get conventional framing any more...especially if you're doing 100 houses a year. Custom one off high end homes, maybe...but in my experience, the more high end home you get...the more engineered it is.
  • James Boardwine
    James Boardwine 5 месяцев назад @Jeffery Brown you lay out Rafters with a framing square not a speed square you can only find out pitch with a speed square do you don't lay Rafters out with it only framing squares your 35 years of experience should have told you that
  • Max Slayer
    Max Slayer 6 месяцев назад @Aylbdr Madison how thick is a top plate
  • Aylbdr Madison
    Aylbdr Madison 6 месяцев назад @ Classic Work: I didn't see their comment, guessing you deleted it, but they may have been pointing out things that you as a carpenter should be aware of, or if not, be willing to learn. For instance, your seat cut 1 1/2' standard is simply wrong as I pointed out in my own comment. Hopefully you are wise enough to see that you have simply been corrected, as we all are at times, no biggie. Sure it's a video about speed squares, but you want to give accurate info regardless. I made my comment based on the probability that someone would use your 1 1/2" standard, thinking that was a real thing, when clearly to those who do know, it is just a mistake you made. But as I said in my own comment, good work otherwise. ^-^
  • Neil
    Neil 6 месяцев назад I use a level and the pivot point (I use a high quality torpedo level). Set the pivot point on the top of the rafter, make the "T" side of the square level with the earth or plumb it if you want because it will not matter, and then look at the common rafter scale and the lumber will give you the answer you need. Much faster then doing all of the work with the plumb bob and additional mathematics. But it doesn't hurt to know both ways. Kudos to the guy who took the time to make the video. Also, when drawing the "seat cut/ birds mouth" , use the pivot point and have the "T" side off the lumber then draw your line.
  • Jeffery Brown
    Jeffery Brown 7 месяцев назад meh...the speed square was designed for carpenters to use to cut rafters. So, yeah...the speed square and all things related to using it are directly intended for use in framing roofs with rafters. This coming from a framing carpenter with 35 years of experience in the field and I can remember when speed squares first come out and replaced the combination squares that folks carried. Some speed squares actually have tiny rafter tables on them...for those of us who know how to use them
  • Tono P
    Tono P 10 месяцев назад Isn't a 1:3 the same as 4:12? So wouldn't it be easier to use a level and tape measure ( ruler ) to measure the pitch? All you're doing is measuring the rise per inch correct?
