If your woodworking adventure began like most, the first square you used was a stamped aluminum or molded plastic carpenter’s square with 90° and 45° in one tool. It’s handy, because the hooked lip aligns easily to the workpiece edge and you have the two most common angles for woodworking in one tool. Woodpeckers Latest OneTIME Tool takes that basic geometry and enlarges it enough to handle cabinetry layout. Instead of stamping them out by the thousands, we manufacture them to the same exacting tolerances we use for our famous Woodworking Squares. Then we folded in one more wrinkle…we made the reference edge removeable.
When you’re using the triangle as a giant carpenter’s square, the base gives you a positive reference to your workpiece edge…just hook it and mark. It also acts as a foot when you want to check a vertical face, like the side of a cabinet. And, nothing could be handier when you’re setting up a track saw table.
But there are times when you want a 90° or 45° reference without a shoulder, for example, checking the inside of a drawer for square, or setting the miter gauge on your table saw. When you want it flat, just spin out the six socket head cap screws and the base comes off, leaving you with a triangle that lays perfectly flat. Don’t worry about recalibration when you want to put the base back on, it’s indexed for perfect realignment every time you install it.
The Precision Triangles are machined from cast and ground aluminum plate – the most dimensionally stable aluminum available. We anodize the surface for improved wear resistance and to give the triangles our familiar “Woodpecker Red” color. The two 90° edges are laser engraved with graduations guaranteed to .004". The resulting white-on-red makes for a scale that is easy to read, even for older eyes or poor lighting conditions.
Choose from Two Sizes, Or Order the Set! We offer our Precision Triangles in 12" and 18" sizes with inch or metric scales. Either size makes a great addition to your shop. If you make a variety of cabinets and cases, you may want to consider both sizes. The set is available at a discount in a single space-saving wall case.
Like all our OneTIME Tools, the Precision Triangles are only made to order, precisely machined and carefully inspected in our Strongsville, Ohio manufacturing facility. The deadline to order yours is Monday, March 11, 2019.
