About This Club

A place to discuss Woodpeckers tools and One Time Tools.

  1. What's new in this club
  2. Oh that does seem like a good woodpeckers product. As soon as i saw the shorter design i picked up what they were on to and agree. I wonder if this will make it less tipsy on the edge of a board? I do disagree with the marking always being less than an inch. For through tenons that sit proud I've marked in as far as 2.5" but still that wasn't even half of the capacity of my marking gauge but probably should have maxed it out.
  3. LINK Okay, they got me with this one. I ordered the Joiner's Marking Gauge. Dont think Id use the Dovetail Marking Gauges though. Anyone else getting in on either of these?
  4. Was glad to see they made these permanently offered tools. These are popular when they did OTT runs of them.
  5. Mine is 1/16" on one side and 1/32" on the other side. I got the dual metric inch version and use the metric just as often as the inch.
  6. What’s on the back side of these? I didn’t see any pictures that show the back.
  7. I find stainless to have enough glare that tiny accurate measurements are difficult late in the day. I've had a 6" imperial and the metric version in my pocket every work day since June 2013. I often use the metric one to transfer marks without ever reading the scale. But the primary use for the metric one is setup work using my Domino. I called Woodpeckers just a few days after receiving my Imperial(inch)ruler and they promptly shipped me the metric version. They make extras of the " One time tools " but only limited numbers.
  8. That makes two of us. I will probably get the stainless steel then.
  9. 6" is the one I use and stainless becuase I find the red hard to read but that's probably just my bad eyes
  10. Paul, what size do you like?
  11. The stainless steal is my go to always in my apron. In fact i bought a spare the last time they ran it
  12. Looks like Woodpeckers added these to their regular product line. I have been waiting for these to return as a OTT. I have exceeded my tool allowance for the month, but these will be added to my Woodpecker collection soon
  13. Yeah just wasted half a sheet of ply because of their retarded insistence on marking out their rulers the wrong way. Having to read the number on the side away from the blade and transfer across to the blade size is just (#&$@ stupid. No more woodpeckers products in my shop.

    I'm not a fan of the aluminum. It dents and dings to easily 1 drop and your $$$ what ever is shot. Ok i'm exaggerating but the corners on my 24" ruler and toast so i only have 1 good end to measure off of.

    Yea Id have to agree on the red too. They used to sell some of their tools through another company that would have them made in black versions and I liked that coloring a lot more. But yea, anything they make in SS is usually a LOT easier to read and of course more durable.
  17. Oh Im sure they wouldnt be as guaranteed accurate, but they probably wouldnt be any worse than the Home Depot / Lowes chinese tools I see MANY people use.

    I have a couple of their squares and rules in red and I just don't like the red. I'm not sure if its my bad eyes or what but i find them hard to read. Having said that their 6" SS Paolini rule is one of my favorites. I bought a spare the last time they ran it just in case I ever need a replacement.

    I find that i can't bother to be constrained by exact dimensions. If someone just made a blank ruler that i could put my own marks on that'd be perfect. More serious i don't really find myself marking long lines along the edge of a piece. If i do i generally want the fibers scored so i use a marking gauge. For everything else a ruler with 1/16ths is enough precision for the work i do.

    I wonder about the precision of those Chinese knock-offs. A Swanson speed square is $10.

    Funny you should mention that. A complaint was sent to the mods about it and one responded saying that they agreed it was getting a bit out of hand and that others had mentioned it as well. Since then their spamming seems to have stopped.

    Sooner or later you will find something to empty it on.

    I've spent more on a one trick pony, dang thing got away... I have no judgement on the stuff for me it comes down to does it fit my woodworkign style? Maybe .... Would i get a lot of use out of it? Maybe again.... Is it excellent value for money? Maybe ..... it's just to many maybes for me to justify. I have a feeling that if i used one for a month i'd buy it in a heart beat but ignorance is a fuller wallet.

    This sounds like a good description of a lot of Woodpeckers stuff. I would think that if the FOG admin and moderators are not stoping them from posting, they must be a vendor member and have the same right to post as any other member.

    Exactly! Too expensive for a kinda one trick pony. I can and do use my 26" Woodpeckers square for a lot of other things besides my guide rails. That and TSO kind of annoyed me with all their SPAMing and self-promoting on the FOG. Then when they released their version of a parallel guide system I was blown away at the price for the complete system. First thing I thought was: "Who do these guys think they are?! Woodpeckers?!" Especially when the Precision Dogs system is 1/3 the price and works perfectly (LINK). Or the Seneca offering for a bit more that does the same thing.

    18" precision square

    I got the 18” one the first time it was offered. I’ve used it to guide my tracksaw on crosscuts , layout work & checking large cases . It’s useful but overpriced. I bought it as a reward for completing a profitable job.
