templates fit over rafters to guide cutting

The Rafter Template System by Lufkin simplifies the layout and cutting of rafters. The system includes five templates that correspond to the most common rafter pitches: 4", 6", 8", 10" and 12". The templates eliminate the need for tables when calculating rafter rise and angles by fitting right over the rafters to guide cutting.
