Default Woodpeckers’ quality on a budget

https://etsy.me/2oxR4pq

Maybe even better than Woodpeckers (and Incra) in some respect. I’ve watched a side by side comparison of the products, tested with a Class 1 machinist and lab tools.

I love the design better than either WP and Incra.

I would think you would have to use one on a daily basis to justify the price. At least I know I would. But for what I do a metal ruler works just fine.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

I’d like to think that people who buy Woodpeckers and Incra stuff do not do that for novelty (usually). Besides, buying an incremental T-ruler for $30 hardly needs justifying IMO.

I partially agree with both Dennis and Theo:
I have two Incra rules and the protractor, and would not care to replace them - I might even get a shorter rule.
However, for most of what I do, that degree of precision is overkill, and I reach for a simple steel ruler.
I also occasionally use LEE Valley’s centre-finder ruler and golden ratio ruler (once in a blue moon). And I wish they would make their hook rules in metric.

I will admit that sometimes my eyes aren't the best, and these style of scales make it easier to hit the mark.

I also enjoy working with tools that look and feel nice, or have a history. I definitely like the look of the wood with the acrylic.

While I am not going out of my way to order one, I did forward the link to my Bride. Apparently I am hard to shop for, so I like to offer suggestions. Much rather a nice $20 scale than a gift card to a restaurant.

Thanks for sharing this guys store!
