I have 2 speed squares. A 6" and 12". A lot of guys, myself included, use it as a guide for a circ saw to cut 90 degrees on dimensional lumber. However, when i bought mine (at Home Depot) it came with a pretty thick and informative manual explaining how to use it and all of its cool functions. Of course, i put it in the "file" with my VCR instruction manual. Funny, the dang thing still flashes 12:00. Hope this helps
