As most of you already know, the Jobber 6 is the most advanced construction calculator on the market. However, after attending numerous trade shows with people who already own a Jobber 6 and many phone conversations, it became apparent that a large majority of Jobber 6 users only use about 20% to 30% of the calculator's potential. I can't tell you how many times we have heard the line "I never knew it did that".

The purpose of this tutorial is designed to help you to become more acquainted with your Jobber 6 calculator. It consists of 18 lessons of the most commonly used tasks (see list below) as well just getting acquainted with the special 0-15 keyboard.

With the tutorial, learn how to:

  • input dimensions using the 0-15 keypad
  • perform basic math
  • access the 6 dimensional format modes
  • solve triangles
  • solve Circles & Segmental functions
  • solve Circles using Segmented rise functions
  • use the Rake-up function
  • use the Rake-down function
  • calculate volume (concrete)
  • calculate volume of a cylinder
  • solve triangles in metric
  • percentage-slope-degrees
  • calculate board feet
  • lay out spaces with subtotals
  • calculate miter cuts
  • square up anything
  • figure hip and valley roof systems
