About This Club

A place to discuss Woodpeckers tools and One Time Tools.

  1. What's new in this club
  2. 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 better product!
  3. Are you referring to their Woodworking Rules (LINK) used in conjunction with their Rule Stops (LINK)?
  4. I thought they were going for the "red" standard!
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. LINK Interesting.... Sooo, they took the Paolini Pocket Rule (LINK), made it not-pocketable and called it something new?
  9. Now a permanent tool offering: LINK
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. LINK High priced caul anyone? This one didnt seem to get as much advertising. I almost missed it! So why do you think might someone spend this much coin for cauls that are typically from some jointed wood?
  13. Oh yea, Im familiar with the TSO offerings. Never saw a need for them as I already other tools that do the job and usually cost me less. Their new parallel guide system for example is amazingly overpriced. There is nothing wrong with the Precision Dogs version or the Seneca if you want to put more money into it for no real benefit.
  14. Hey hey hey i only forgot glue that one time.... well and that other time.... I think i should have worded that a bit differently. I bet they are nice with a track saw but i have had decent luck with a shorter square. These kenix ones are nice because they have a thick blade. https://www.amazon.com/Kinex-4034-12-020-Machinist-Square-0-0008/dp/B079R8BVYW/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=kinex+square&qid=1565872081&s=gateway&sr=8-4 My draw to the WP stuff isn't the size but that they make it from material that doesn't rust. I have to go through and wax my squares just like my planes and cast iron. Speaking of that i really should wax everything again it's been a while.
  15. I have to admit though, I have their 26" square and its been awesome for squaring up guide rails. I use it every time I break out the track saw or need to use a router on a guide rail.
  16. The first thing that comes to my mind is I can't read it. Full disclosure I have really bad vision LOL. I have the same problem with most of their red rules and squares. My favorites are still the SS 6" Paolini, #1 hands down best small rule ever made IMHO. Second is the small red triangle square I use primarily for squaring machinery blades. Both reside in my apron at all times when not in use.
  17. It'd be interesting if the cut out all the bells and whistles and just made them blank if they could sell them for a lot less. All that CNC milling and laser etching measurements has to take a long time to set up and will increase waste that they have to make up for and is it really useful? A big square like these would be nice and there aren't a lot of options but at the same time my 10"x7" square gets the job done. I don't feel that my furniture is falling apart because i used a $25 square over a $250 one.
  18. LINK Just in case the normal aluminum Woodpeckers Woodworking Squares (LINK) weren't expensive enough, never fear, we've got ya covered! Now half in stainless steel! Looks like the stainless versions will run ya another $60 more.
  19. LINK Looks like they made this a permanent tool now. Seems way overpriced to me, but it is a lot less than the Parf Guide System. Anyone out there own one and care to comment? I'm still looking for a good way to layout my own MFT table tops.
  20. I do like the SS better than the red.
  21. I saw this this morning and it reminded me of the paloni pocket rule. The price isn't super awful like some of their stuff. I do really like my SS pocket rule a lot but i find myself getting frustrated with hook rules often. I personally think their regular wide aluminum rulers are as good as these their downside is they are larger but that can be a positive thing as well. It does overlap them because they have a hook option that is removable.
  22. LINK Nice tool, but feels a bit redundant. And of course overpriced when it basically works just like a combination square which most should already have. I wish their Hook Rule would work on their 6" ruler. It works on all the other sizes.
  23. LINK Was an OTT but is now a permanent tool. I like the idea, but being that its made of phenolic I feel like it should cost half the price. Anyone have one of these and care to comment on how they like it?
