  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. Looks like these didn't end up being all they were marketed to be: LINK
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

  7. Good lookin for sure, but still made of aluminum for the body of the tool and for those prices thats outrageous!
  8. LINK Well it finally happened. Woodpeckers thinks its Starrett. lol
  9. 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
  10. Are you referring to their Woodworking Rules (LINK) used in conjunction with their Rule Stops (LINK)?
  11. LINK Interesting.... Sooo, they took the Paolini Pocket Rule (LINK), made it not-pocketable and called it something new?
  12. Now a permanent tool offering: LINK
  13. LINK Have you guys seen these for storing your track saw guide rails? Kinda cool for $20 a pair.
  14. 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!
  15. 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?
