PRO360 & PRO3600

The PRO 360 and PRO 3600 digital protractors are high performance, angle measurement tools that are sold
exclusively through our network of industrial distributors. Both units have a One Year Limited Warranty, CE Certification and National Stock Numbers.* These state-of-the-art, angle measurement tools have features such as "Hold" which lets you to store the last reading taken with a touch of a button. They also have "Alternate Reference" (Alt Zero) which allows you to electronically zero the reading anywhere within the digital protractor's 360° range. The PRO 3600, in addition to higher resolution (0.01°), has an RS-232 port so you can output the angle measurement data to a computer. Both protractors can be easily fitted with an available, magnetic base or an array of custom attachments.

The PRO 360 & PRO 3600 Digital Protractor from SmartTool Technologies is a revolutionary measuring tool that provides an immediate, digital reading of all angles in a 360° range. The unit utilizes a patented, liquid-filled sensor combined with precision measurement circuitry to provide unparalleled accuracy and stability.

A precision machined aluminum frame provides a rigid, lightweight, ultra-precise platform for extremely accurate measurements. The frame is grooved along the bottomsurface to facilitate use with round objects such as pipes or shafts and incorporates threaded holes on the bottom for rigid attachment if desired.

The front panel buttons can be used to capture desired readings or to designate an alternate reference surface from which subsequent angles are then measured. The unit can also be easily recalibrated in the field to factory accuracy using any available flat surface.

PRO 360:
  • Full 360 degree range (90° x 4)
  • Easy to read LCD display which intelligently flips over when the unit is upside down.
  • Maximum accuracy of +/- 0.1° and maximum resolution of 0. 1°

History of Penn Tool Co. Inc







Gene Elson
Founder, President & CEO of Penn Tool Co.

Back in 1968 Penn Tool Co. was just a small hardware store on Market Street in Newark NJ.  This particular area of Newark NJ was called the "Ironbound" section because of the network of railroad tracks and the large metalworking industry in the area.As a result of the close proximity of The Penn Station Train Terminal, Gene decided to call his business Penn Tool Co. Gene's business started out selling tools much like any other hardware store.  As the metalworking industry slowly left Newark NJ, it became very apparent that diversification was needed.  Newark NJ and its local economy could no longer support the old method of doing business.  Gene smartly transformed Penn Tool Co. into a company specializing in precision measuring instruments for the metalworking community.  Gene decided that tools would need to be put into catalogs and sent throughout the United States, thus expanding the market in a new way.  He created the catalogs in house which at the time was not very common in the tool industry.  Mailing lists were compiled and catalogs sent out.  It was a huge success.
For over 45 years, Gene Elson has been President of Penn Tool Co. and is still using his knowledge and creativity to make his business the best in its class.  Gene can often be found at Industry Trade Shows searching for new and unique products.  While relaxing Gene is happiest listening to Jazz, playing tennis, and fishing or boating on the NJ Shore.

Michael Elson
Vice President

Michael grew up in the tool industry working summers in the shipping department and unloading delivery trucks.  After studying business and marketing at the University of Arizona, Michael came back east to work full time at Penn Tool Co. When he first started his career in the tool industry, the only way to reach out to customers was through paper catalogs and using mailing lists to target potential business.  With the advent of the Internet, Penn Tool Co., slowly transitioned from the paper catalog to online purchasing over the internet.  Throughout the years many lessons were learned and in 2014 Michael spearheaded the re-launch of penntoolco.com.  Using his many years of knowledge and experience in the tool business, Michael created the website he felt his customers kept asking for.  Every detail of the new website was meticulously thought out by Michael and his new web development advisors.  The result is a user friendly website making purchasing tools online a quick and simple process. 
In addition to website development, Michael is highly trained and certified to do business with the United States Government fulfilling GSA Contracts.  During his many years working in the industry, Michael has personally visited many of the factories that manufacture tools sold at Penn Tool Co. Michael has traveled extensively  throughout Latin America, Europe and Asia ensuring the quality of tools sold by Penn Tool Co., meet his strict standards. Michael also is a firm believer in having direct communication with his customers.  Aside from being in upper management at Penn Tool Co., you can actually speak to Michael directly anytime by calling 800-526-4956 Ext.  107.

About Us

Michael Elson 
Light Tool Supply

For as long as I can remember, I have been surrounded by tools. As a young boy I worked summers packing orders and unloading trucks at my father's tool and supply company. After graduating from college, I immediately went to work full-time for my father and have been in this industry ever since.  Over the years I have learned this business inside and out and have spent many hours using that knowledge to improve the mail order supply business. I have seen that business change drastically over the years. The most dramatic change is from a business based on the paper catalog to one based on products sold via the internet. Subsequently, after many years of experience, I decided to create my own company to do what I know best. Light Tool Supply is now quickly bringing tools to loyal customers at the best prices possible.  I encourage you to use our vast experience as a resource for all your tooling needs.  If you see something on our website that you do not feel is the best price, please feel free to email me directly at michael@lighttoolsupply.com.  I also would like you to email me or my staff with any manufacturer's Part# from our long list of vendors at the bottom of this page for a low price quote. Additionally, do not hesitate to contact Light Tool Supply with any of our competitors' part numbers. It would be my pleasure to cross reference those part numbers with ours and beat their prices! I realize there are many companies to choose from; I hope you will choose Light Tool Supply.

Thank you,
Michael Elson
