Milwaukee Introduces Line of Framing & Rafter Squares

Milwaukee Tool has announced its first line of MEP focused framing and rafter squares.  Designed from the ground-up to address common user frustrations, the new Milwaukee® Squares are built to provide superior durability and versatility. The squares include features unique to the industry such as scribe notches on the framing square and a magnetic heel on the rafter square.

The 7” Magnetic Rafter Square is built with rare earth magnets in the heel which provides a secure hold on all ferrous surfaces. The 1-1/8” heel provides more grip while working with rounded stock. Moreover, the tool also has the most precision scribe notches (1” – 6”) of any rafter in its class, as well as a 1” pipe cutting jack. This feature is new-to-world for rafter squares, helping to elevate and tightly hold materials such as conduit, copper, and rigid pipe during cuts.  The square is also made with more aluminum for extreme durability.  This is the only rafter square truly designed for steel stud framers and mechanical, electrical & plumbing contractors.

This square is also the first framing square to feature precision scribe notches for marking in 1/2″ and 1/4″ increments. Finally, highly visible laser-etched markings will not wear off, providing trusted accuracy throughout the life of the square.


Made in the USA*, the new Milwaukee® Framing and Rafter Squares are backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Milwaukee continues to add to their layout & measurement offering.
