  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?
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  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. 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.
  21. 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?
  22. Cool! And if those weren't expensive enough already, you can now add 50" Extension Rails for an additional $60 PER clamp!
  23. Totally valid question! And for the price they are charging, they really should have ALL those types of issues worked out. From their description the bars and clamp faces are powder coated steel. Anyone know how powder coating does with dried glue? Is it a pain to get the glue off of?
  24. LINK These actually look like a pretty solid panel clamp and a good idea if they work as advertised. But man, at $110 each if you buy 4, they are very pricey! What are your thoughts? Anyone planning on ordering a set?
  25. Yea they up'ed the price a lot on the SS versions. I do like the SS 6" model, but to be honest I have a 6" Starrett combo square that I have never felt cumbersome to carry around so I didn't end up keeping the 6" Paolini Pocket Rule I had.
