Hi all,
I've acquired a Renner Hammer Angle Gauge to measure the angle on my Renner hammers but I'm unsure on where exactly to position the tool in order to get the right reading, can someone please offer me some advice? Thank you very much!
Jorge

There is a drawing on the tool that shows how to use it.

it is in grades, not degrees, also. (100 not 90)

I use a digital protractor, on the shank the side of the hammer well flat on the bench.

It gives that in degrees a little more accurately than with gauges.

That drawing is inaccurate and completely useless.
