One thing I found interesting when i bought this little square from DFM toolworks and it had a pin you stick in a hole to use for angles for various polygons. Kind of nifty for boxes or segmented turning, etc. Since my combination square only has 45 and 90.

360 / #corners / 2

So for a 4 sided box:
360/4 = 90
90/2 = 45 degrees
