The new upgraded Ultimate Roofing Square guide :
To pitch the main roof simply select the required pitch, then rotate the pivot arm so that the roof pitch arrow is in line with the required pitch & lock it off, it’s now set for the pitch.
To set the birdsmouth, slide the long arm to the required depth. This should not exceed 1/3 of the rafter depth.
To set the hip plumb cut, move the pivot arm to the same pitch as the main roof on the outside arc, line up the hip arrow to this degree, now it is set.
Example – If the main roof is 30°, select 30° on the outside arc, line the hip arrow up to this and it’s set. The height above plate will need adjusting accordingly.
The hip plumb cut will be shallower than the main roof.
