Hook Rules Woodpecker

The peak rule meets all these criteria and more. They are available in lengths of 12″, 24″, 36″ and 49-1/2″ as well as lengths of 300 mm, 600 mm, 900 mm and 1200 mm. I have the 12″ and 24″ rules in my workshop. The first thing you notice when you pick one up is the thickness and weight of the ruler. It has a recess in the middle of the bottom surface that ensures that it stays flat and does not tip over. It also has recesses on the front for your fingers to make it easy to move the line on a wooden surface. The marks are laser etched on a 30-degree surface, which makes them easily visible and brings them directly to the surface of the plate, so you don`t have to worry about parallax issues. Why use a metal ruler? A tape measure is great for breaking down your inventory into manageable parts for milling and initial machining, but I don`t trust them for the final layout. I always think, “Does that little metal hook at the end of the ruler move back and forth? Is he stuck between the measures? Are the dimensions the same when suspended above an edge or pressed against a surface? For the final disposition, I want a rule that gives me precise measurements every time. We manufacture the hanging rules in 3 sizes, 6″, 12″ and 24”. Each comes with a wall-mounted rack-it™ to keep your hook rulers secure, but always at hand. Each size is available separately, or save money with the complete set.

Keep a 6″ in your apron pocket, a 12″ on your bench and the 24″ hanging on your table saw for the next furniture project. We have been using hook rules since the last version in our test store and have found the hook to be great. most of the time. But there are times when it`s an obstacle. Therefore, this time we have changed the engraving of the graduations to make it the most versatile rule of your shop. On one side, the scale is read from left to right (with the hook). On the other hand, the scale is read from right to left (from the square end of the ruler). Do you need to measure from an indoor corner? Register from the end of the square.

Do you need to measure from an edge? Turn over and use the hook. Both sides show a ladder in sixteenths and another in thirty seconds. For those who prefer to work in millimeters, we also offer a metric version. Where is the edge? So often in stores, this is a critical question. Trying to visually align a ruler with the edge of a board opens up a possibility of error, especially if your lighting is marginal and you have a callus or two on your fingertips. Our new tool, the hanging ruler, adds a small feature – a hook – to the traditional shop ruler and instantly improves your accuracy. Simply place the hook against the edge of your board and the zero will be recorded instantly. It even works perfectly if the edge has already been rounded or beveled (as long as the profile is less than 1/4″ deep).

There are also various accessories at Highland Woodworking to add stops and end hooks to make the ruler even more useful! We also engraved the end of the hook to check or adjust the height of the saw blades, cutters and your drill. Hook rules have been around for ages. Your advantage is the ability to quickly and accurately reference the starting edge of a board. Woodpeckers took this idea and developed a simple hook that attaches to Woodpeckers` woodworking rules*. The hook stop is especially useful when working with longer rules. Imagine being two or three feet away from the zero end of the ruler, instead of stretching to try to keep the zero end flush with the edge of the board, you can just hang that end on the board and off you go. Q: How wide is the blade? A: 0.75 inches wide for 6-inch models and 1 inch for 12-inch and 24-inch modelsQ: Can I order the hook ruler without Rack-it? A: The hook rule is currently only available with rack-it. Q: What is the width of the cap? A: The 6-inch headphones are 1.25 inches and the 12- and 24-inch fairings are 1.5 inches. Q: Are the original hook rules compatible with the new Rack It? A: Yes.

The original hook rules adapt to the new rack. To calculate the total number of stars and the percentage distribution per star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system takes into account things like updating a review and whether the reviewer purchased the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to check for reliability. Given all these factors, what does this mean for you? It may sound simple, but you can position and draw a very straight and precise line. Simple? Yes. Important? A lot! Customer reviews, including star ratings of products, help customers learn more about the product and decide if it`s right for them. Woodpeckers was founded in September 1988 and focuses exclusively on woodworking tools. In the early years, they mainly produced milling tables and cutter mounting plates. From there, they became a full-fledged manufacturer of milling elevators, milling fences, measuring and design tools, and many useful clamping accessories.

All production, i.e. machining, engraving, assembly and packaging, takes place at their manufacturing facility near Cleveland, Ohio. The Woodpeckers T-Square consists of a precision-machined laser-engraved aluminum blade attached to a solid stick handle with two supporting lips to prevent tilt and a machined edge that ensures the T-square is square. The handle and blade are fixed together with six precision screws. The blade itself has precise 1mm holes drilled every 1/16″. These holes allow you to draw lines along the edge of a board or parallel to each other. Place a pencil in the hole, drag the T-square along your piece and you get a perfectly spaced line that follows exactly the edge of the tree. As with Woodpecker`s ruler, the outer edges are machined on a 30-degree chamfer for easy reading and laser-engraved scales for measurement. It also comes with an MDF case that fits the T-Square and plastic clips to hold it in place. There are two finger slots to make it easier to remove the T-square. You can hang the suitcase on the wall of your store for easy access. Jeffrey Fleisher has been a carpenter for about 20 years and a professional cabinetmaker for 6 years.

Using the standard scale is pretty obvious, but I tend to use the medium scale almost as often as the standard scale. Do you want to mark the center line on one leg for a plug-in? Where is the center of a 5-7/16″ wide board? Well, with a central scale, you don`t need to measure, divide it in half, and then try to measure again. Instead, simply align the scales on either side of the zero point with the edges of your map so that they are identical, and then the zero point is the midpoint. It is very simple and very precise. In addition, parallel lines can be drawn at different distances up to 1/16″. This OneTIME tool has expired and can no longer be purchased.
