About This Club

A place to discuss Woodpeckers tools and One Time Tools.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. ben_r_ you are correct not a ton of clamping strength but I find myself using them all the time. Definitely keep things in place and very easy to work with. they are also very light which like. Wouldn't be the first clamp I buy but if you have a good assortment and can get 4 on sale like i did, a good buy for sure.
  3. I kinda like those new Bessey Klick clamps though. They dont offer much in strength it looks like, but they seem kinda fancy and arent terrible overpriced.
  4. Seems like a PITA to use. I just flick the wheel on my benchcrafted
  5. I have a $100 vise on the shoulder and one on the end, and I have a movable Moxon vise knock off. And what I see there is a Vise, just configured differently and more expensive than a "real" vise. But if someone's into the "red" thing, regardless if it does what it claims, Is only after his inner smile.
  6. LINK Interesting concept I think, especially for those working on the go. And at least this one doesn't seem to be too crazily overpriced. Although I cant imagine this being super stable/rigid. BUT the Festool MFT is crazy NOT rigid and people seem to love and swear by those! What do you guys think?
  7. Looks like these didn't end up being all they were marketed to be: LINK
  8. LINK Well thats an odd one. Cant tell how I feel about that. I guess if it's something thatll help speed up something you do a lot of... But I mean, could just use the square and maybe something like a Lee Valley Veritas Dual Marking Gauge which is a lot cheaper and or you might already have.
  9. Nah, cant dye stainless like you can aluminum. At best they might powder coat it to get a color but then that would change the thickness uniformity and this the perfect, controllable squareness of such a tool.
  10. If the coating wears a little, you might even see galvanic corrosion form where aluminum and steel contact. That can't be good for anyone.
  11. Nah, cant dye stainless like you can aluminum. At best they might powder coat it to get a color but then that would change the thickness uniformity and this the perfect, controllable squareness of such a tool.
  12. SS on aluminum, I wonder if that body isn't going to wear down over time and lose it's ability to lock or lose it's square. I'd never make a tool like that out of aluminum, At first I was hoping they were red stainless or something.
  13. Good lookin for sure, but still made of aluminum for the body of the tool and for those prices thats outrageous!
  14. At those prices, they think they're way better than Starrett. However they are good looking tools and I'd pay $100 for a set, but not almost $300.
  15. LINK Well it finally happened. Woodpeckers thinks its Starrett. lol
  16. LINK So I guess if you are constantly marking for rabbets these might be handy, even though you probably have 3 other marking tools in the shop that you can do the same thing with, but what bothers me is all this does it help you make a mark. I suppose you could run a blade along it to pre-sever the wood fibers to achieve a cleaner cut, but if you're going to do that why not buy a marking gauge with a blade on the end? Say like the Lee Valley option (LINK). Or if you need set stop points for repeated accuracy, spending a bit more for the Jessem Wood Sabre (LINK) and get a whole level
  17. Are you referring to their Woodworking Rules (LINK) used in conjunction with their Rule Stops (LINK)?
  18. I thought they were going for the "red" standard!
  19. Woodpeckers is trying to be the "gold" standard in the woodworking layout business. Though their tools are well made, 95% of us can get the same quality by using the common tools we already have, by being very careful in what we do.
  20. What can possibly be the advantage of one of those rules over a good old combination square? I know it can stand upright, but dealing with a 12-24" ruler just to measure up to 1 3/4" is not practical.
  21. Don't forget they have a ruler in these lengths already that is about the same width with similar features.... I almost bought one of these because i like my paloni ruler but the price turned me away.
  22. LINK Interesting.... Sooo, they took the Paolini Pocket Rule (LINK), made it not-pocketable and called it something new?
  23. Now a permanent tool offering: LINK
  24. Certainly seems that way to me too regarding running out of ideas. But at least they have really put an effort to making more of their most popular OTTs permanent offerings. That was a long time coming!
  25. I think Woodpeckers is going of the deep end or running out of ideas. I think most of their recent offerings are a waste of money.
