Anyone get to check these out yet? Worthwhile? The price looks nice...

I'm not sure who makes them. I know a lot of the pinnacle labeled measuring tools are made by Woodpecker, any idea if they make these too?

Any info is appreciated...
Thanks

I doubt that's a Woodpecker's product, Woodpecker's forte is CNC machined aluminum.

I could be wrong, but most Woodpecker's work is pretty recognizable.

I believe Woodpecker closed out their pinnacle line and rebranded everything under their own name. The Pinnacle blades is a different company.

I know Rob Cosman talked about them earlier this summer/spring and spoke very highly of them. Made by Pinnacle with an IBC blade. Definitely on my wish list, I got my cheap Stanley knockoff 151 working alright now but not what I would call a pleasure to use.

Does Rob still advertise and endorse Pinnacle tools?
