Six Sided Angle Measuring Tool (6 pcs)

Whatsapp Order

A six-sided angle measuring tool, commonly known as a hexagonal protractor, is a geometric instrument with six equal sides and six internal angles, each measuring 120 degrees. This tool is specifically designed to facilitate the measurement and drawing of angles in various applications, such as geometry and engineering. The angles are typically marked or calibrated along the edges, allowing users to accurately determine and replicate specific angular measurements during drafting or other precision tasks.

Safety Precautions

  1. Mindful Handling:
    • Handle the tool with care to avoid any sharp edges or protruding parts that could cause injury. Be cautious when picking up, carrying, or passing the tool to others.
  2. Proper Storage:
    • Store the hexagonal protractor in a designated area when not in use. This helps prevent accidents such as tripping over the tool or inadvertently coming into contact with its edges.
  3. Sharp Edges Awareness:
    • Be aware of the edges of the tool to prevent accidental cuts or abrasions. Avoid sliding your hands along the edges without proper caution.
  4. Correct Tool for the Job:
    • Use the hexagonal protractor for its intended purpose. Avoid using it as a cutting or poking tool, as this can damage the tool and pose a safety risk.
  5. Clear Work Area:
    • Ensure the work area is clear of unnecessary items or debris. This reduces the risk of accidents and makes it easier to handle and use the angle measuring tool safely.
  6. Proper Lighting:
    • Work in well-lit areas to enhance visibility. Proper lighting reduces the likelihood of misreading measurements and helps prevent accidents due to poor visibility.
  7. Protective Gear:
    • Depending on the specific application, consider using appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) such as safety glasses or gloves to protect against any potential hazards.
  8. Training and Familiarity:
    • Ensure that users are trained and familiar with the proper use of the hexagonal protractor. This includes understanding how to read measurements and handle the tool safely.
  9. Secure Workpieces:
    • When cutting or working with materials using angle measurements, ensure that workpieces are securely positioned to prevent movement or slipping, which could lead to accidents.
  10. First Aid Preparedness:
    • Have a basic first aid kit on hand in case of minor injuries. Knowing the location of first aid supplies and having basic first aid knowledge can be beneficial.
  11. Supervision for Beginners:
    • If someone is new to using the hexagonal protractor, they should be supervised by someone experienced until they are familiar with proper handling and safety procedures.
