Default Adjustable T-Square

On American Woodshop Episode 1910 Outdoor Accents, Scott Phillips uses a black metal T-Square.
The blade of the square has a slot cut down the middle in which the head adjust and locks.

Can anyone identify this ruler?

I've searched in vain for this tool.

Thank you!

I'm seeing you are asking all over the web (at least at sawmillcreek) if anyone knows. I would have thought that since the show is sponsored by Woodcraft, that it was one of theirs, but it's not. (I looked.) The video is too grainy to make out the maker's logo. (see attached photo)

The one who would know for sure is Scott. Public figure who has his own woodworking business... Ask him. I sent you a private message with his phone number. Since a fairly new member here, check your PM's at the top right of this page (have to be logged in), there is a link to get to your PM's.

Default Thank You

Thank you all for your responses to my question.

After identifying the T-Square in question, I decided that this tool was not what I was looking for.

I decided that the Woodpeckers 24inch Woodworking Rule together with the Pinnacle 2" Rule Stop will give me the type of ruler I want.

Default What Is It?

The AWS ruler is a Pinnacle (Woodcraft Brand) version of the Woodpeckers 24" Precision Woodworking T Square.

I saw the price of what you ID'ed. Ouch. $100 dollars for a 2' t-square? With how much I actually would use a t-square (and I do), it would be hard for me to justify that. I have various sized t-squares, squares and rules, 6" to 48".

Sharon would kill me, no matter how much I told her it would make things easier. Her first questions are usually, "Is it going to make you money?", "How long will it take for it to pay for itself in use?", "Can you do it with what you have?" & "Does it make things easier?", "Does it add any capabilities that you don't already have?" Bless her, she does add that sense of reality...

I think you will get better varied adaptable use and get more actual work use with what you substituted on... for more common sense type value. Good choice. Sometimes getting those separate pieces,turns out to be a blessing as the focus of use isn't narrowed to something specific, so it gets more use.
