    Default Can anyonename this tool?

    I can't find it anywhere, more of an accessory that a tool.

    Essentially it's used for pushing into angle so that the plastic pins/sticks move down and leave an in print in the tool.

    It's about 30cm x 20 cm and made of plastic, the one I used was blue. The sticks/pins were really close together and held together by some king of brace/belt.

    here is a bad word picture of the tool on the left and then when you push it into an angle the pins move down leaving the shape of the angle in the tool.

    I couldn't remember the name of it myself but I knew exactly what it was you wanted so I typed "Tile shaper" into google and it fortunately found the correct thing

    I was getting too caught up on "Angle Measurement Tool" which took me down a very different path.

    Super little gauges these!

    If you are going to buy one I would stick with a plastic variant. I've had 2 of the metal one's and neither lasted much longer than 5 minutes.

    Thanks to tips

    Google only helps if you can fecking describe what you want.

    "Plastic Angle Measurement Tool" didn't seem to work too well!
