Tangent, smangent. Just use a speed square to draw a 45 across the corner from the 3-3/4" point, then measure half of the height of the vertical leg and connect this point to the 3-3/4" point.

I took a piece of scrap 2x12 I had and cut the angle. I set it next to one of the rafters in my garage (which is what I'm using it for) and it fit perfectly. Can't wait to do it. Thanks!

I've breached the good conduct code and insulted a fellow tradesman. I am what I am, and every where I go there I am. Insensitivity stalks me like a predator.

Tough love is always hard. I respect you for telling the truth.

Best regards,

Kevin

Sorry to hear that you are "insensitive"; because myself, a guy who posts under "troubleseeker" am always a sensitive guy, except when I may slip up and ask

"Which idiot plumber ran the drain pipe right across the center of the crawl space so no one can go over or under it?"

"Where is the moron electrician's helper who drilled four runs of wire down the kitchen wall at exactly the height of the base cabinets, just because that is the height of the drill when he walks up to the wall and he is too lazy to bend down. I'm just curious for his plan for rerouting those wires after I send thirty 2 1/2" cabinet screws into them."

" Cable tv installtion guy...tell me again why you had to mount your interface 10' out in the center of the wall instead of next to all the other service drops. Is it because you are really proud of the 10' of wire you had to staple horizontally to the soffit from your drop at the building's corner; or are you more proud of the lovely vertical wire stapled down the middle of the clear wall"
