Bevel Gauges are frequently used for laying out angles and replicating them in a woodshop. There are a variety available for different tasks of all sizes. I have even made makeshift bevel gauges out of an old hacksaw blade cut into two small pieces and riveted together through the pre-drilled holes on each end of the blade. This model is one of my favorites. The tension adjustment is wisely positioned at the bottom of the tool as opposed to some versions where it is located on the side. This allows you to get into areas where a side-mounted adjuster may prohibit.
