Amazon.com Review
Take the guesswork out of measuring, marking and reading angles—no tricky geometry or complicated calculations required—with the Denali Digital Angle Protractor. Simply swing open the tool’s pivoting leg and immediately read the angle on the digital display window. The tool is accurate within 1 degree, and will read angles ranging from zero to 185 degrees. The anodized-aluminum protractor is also fitted with two bubble vials for use as a conventional level.

The Denali Digital Angle Protractor weighs less than a pound, and measures a slim 1 in. x 2 in. x 11 in. It’s powered a single 9-volt battery (included) that typically lasts about 100 hours of normal use. The tool comes with a protective carrying case that’s equipped with a convenient steel belt clip.

The protractor provides a quick and precise way to read existing angles, such as roof slopes, wall corners, handrails, and mitered trim work. You can also use it to mark any desired angle up to 185 degrees. It’s an indispensable tool when installing crown molding; use it to determine the angle of outside corners, which are rarely 90 degrees. This versatile tool will also do many of the jobs typically reserved for a sliding T-bevel square. And if all that weren’t enough, the Denali Digital Angle Protractor costs about three times less than any comparable tool on the market. –Joseph Truini

    Denali 11-Inch Digital Angle Protractor has been rated 1 starsInaccurate

    The advertised 1/10 degree accuracy is exactly what mine gave me, i.e., it was always off by 1/10 degree when I moved beyond a 60 degree angle. In other words, when closed it read zero, but when you go to a known-accurate 90 degree angle I consistently got 89.9 degrees. More troubling to me than that is the flexibility of the movable arm. It’s a somewhat flexible piece of aluminum angle iron, so if you press a little too hard when taking a measurement you will affect the reading. But a couple of weeks later the error correction changed to -.5 degrees around 90 degrees, and +.4 degrees around 45 degrees. In other words, it became useless.

    I returned it for a replacement and the second one was off by -.4 degrees. Returned that one too.

    Denali 11-Inch Digital Angle Protractor has been rated 5 starsAmazing tool

    I have enjoyed a lot of tools over these many years, but have not found one that makes such an easy foolproof way of figuring angles as the Denali digital does. I definately recommend it to anyone who wants a quick easy way of completing a project that requires angle cuts.

    A very nice looking tool with a nice case. Unfortunately it is off by as much as 1/2 a degree. We got 2 of these and they were both inacurate.

    Denali 11-Inch Digital Angle Protractor has been rated 1 starsDigital does not mean accurate

    I purchased this item because I wanted the accuracy of a digital tool. At first, I was measuring an angle of 35 degrees and did not notice any problems. But, when I opened it to 90 degrees, I was surprised that the swinging arm seemed visibly wrong. So I started checking it with several other tools. The Denali was consistently wrong by 1.5 degrees. Even an old-fashioned mechanical protractor can do better than that. I can’t even donate this to a thrift shop because it’s no good for anyone. The only thing that is digital about this tool is the readout. Now I have to spend money again on the same tool made by another company that (hopefully) has quality control.
