Nope, but I dont see it being useful, unless I am installing true 8x8s, and centering my layout on the toilet flange.

Eight bucks worth of garbage, and the hole might end up too big. All toilets are not equal.

You know the lid off of a one gallon redgard or Hydroban Bucket works perfect. 7.5 inches.

I keep one of these in the tool trailer. We use it to mark the flange size, or outside pipe size or inside pipe size, and the bolt locations

All in one handy tool

Can be used over and over again !!

for the low, low price of $5.97

That's only two bucks cheaper than Hammy's tool. It is a good idea.

I'm of the octagon school of thought so, I don't knead no steenkin' flange templates.

For 25 years now I have used the same free method of marking a toilet flange cut. I'd mark the center x... put the 5" on the x and mark 1 and a 1/4 and 8 3/4... spin the tape and do this 5-6 more times... and then sing the Pee-Wee Herman song connect the dots, la la la la la with my pencil. hahaha!!!

I use the same as Greg posted.
Want another use for it? The inside diameter is the size you need to cut to tile around the schluter mixing valve seal also

Its a great multi tool. Takes up almost no room in the toolbox. And its free!
Just "borrow" one when the plumber is not looking.

Im just borrowing it, Ill make sure he gets it back. In about 30 years when Im done using it
