...and before I realized it, I became the owner of one of Woodpeckers' One Time Tool...

NO...ABSOLUTELY NOT...!!! I did not buy it...PHEW...

A friend of mine was clearing out his shop...I happened to be there...

Here's a quick video about it... Along with it came Woodpeckers' Rabbet Guage set...

...and all this time all I had was a caliper...

I own three Woodpecker items.

First is multi use, but mostly used to check slot-blade alignment, but mostly for setting the fence. $100, but such a pleasure to use once in awhile. No regrets.

Second, the coping sled I don't use...unnecessary item. Wasted money.

The third is the plate for my Triton router, extra thick, twist lock inserts and many sizes of snap-in inserts. Really like it, overpriced, but worth it. Probably won't sag for a million years.




Other than that, I haven't seen a one time tool worth the high cost, but they are pretty to look at.

They are beautiful things. The red is even nicer than that of the Brembo brake callipers, that you see on fancier cars! ;)

In Woodpeckers case the cost greatly exceeds the neat factor in pretty much every case. I don’t mind paying extra for quality but they’re past that point of diminishing returns.

None of my tools are red. And that DEFINITELY includes saw blades.

I don't do this type of trenching as an exact fit. I set the top of the trench line exactly where I want it and run the trench with a router, I use any cutter that is at least 3/4ers the stock thickness, then I do a rebate on the underside of the stock and that rebate serves a few purposes, One, it leaves the tenon the correct thickness for the groove and two, it leaves a shoulder that sets and exact width when the stock is inserted. This type of groove and rebate joining, can be used for any construction, so I do that and three, it also deals with any stock that varies in thickness quite well, I don't do exact width grooving.
