Woodpeckers OneTIME DelVe Square (US)
« on: January 31, 2017, 08:55 AM »
No Measurement Mortise & Tenon Layout. The DelVe Square right triangle is offset in the 3/4" wide base with 1/4" on one side and 3/8" on the other. So in commonly used 3/4" thick stock, tenon cheeks and shoulders are marked with the stroke of a pencil.

Fast and Precise Machine Setup. Of course you can use the DelVe Square to set your table saw to 90 and 45 deg. But you can also use the base's 3/4" width or 1/4" thickness to set the blade height. Or stand the square on its edge and use the measurement scale to make other height adjustments. You can even set your saw fence using these foolproof, fixed gauging dimensions.

Router Set Up. Set up your router for depth of cut adjustments using the square's 1/4" thick base or the 1/8" thick right triangle. Simply zero-out the bit to the router base then set the router depth stop. Tedious trial and error adjustments are a thing of the past.

Quality Through and Through. Woodpeckers DelVe Square is meticulously machined from a single piece of tool plate grade aluminum then carefully quality checked. Woodpeckers' skilled machinists operate state-of-the-art CNC equipment to assure the highest precision possible.

Order Your Woodpeckers OneTIME DelVe Square - $49.99

Agreed.  At first, when i got it, I thought it was a joke because i expected it to be bigger for some reason.
But at this point, I use it all the time.  That and my combo square, but if you really look into the DelVe and how to us it, it's pretty awesome. 

Personally - I don't have an issue with Woodpeckers repeating "One-Time Tools" as long as they pick the best ones!
There are a few on the list I'm waiting to come back.

Does the DelVe Square do a good job at squaring tracks/fences?  Or would the Precision Triangles be the better choice?

I think you'd be better off with something like the Woodpeckers 1281 square that has a longer surface for that type of alignment.

The 1/8" thick blade seems too thick for accurate measuring and why did they not do 2.5 degree increments on the angle guide. Not having 22.5 degrees seems shortsighted.


I would find this hard to justify over a Swanson Speed Square.

Ordered but not through @Shane Holland's FestoolProducts microsite.  It doesn't show all the Woodpeckers tools available.  Is that because you don't have access to all of them?  I prefer to buy from you guys over Woodpeckers directly for a number of reasons, but was in the market for a story stick this morning.  While doing my 3:00 AM browsing (this is one of the few times of the day the family isn't crawling all over me) I was determined to get that story stick.  Checked your site first and then made it over to Woodpeckers to find the DelVe one timer too.  Pulled the trigger and paid their ridiculous shipping fees.

It is only a couple hundred dollar loss to y'alls revenue, against the thousands I've dropped on your company.  But I would like to see more stuff on the FestoolProducts.com site....OR...carry my login and purchase history over to the ToolNut site.  It would be nice if it all worked as one seamless experience for me.  I'd buy more. 


A good user experience on a website, mixed with fair pricing, earns my business these days.  I don't care about showrooms or even talking to someone over the phone anymore.  The Internet has made much of that obsolete for me.  And this is why I shop your site first.

@Poindexter thanks for the feedback. When we did some work on the websites last year, one of the goals was a unified login between the two websites. Due to some technical issues related to the use of two different merchant accounts for credit card processing, we were ultimately unable to get it working. But, it's still on our list of improvements.

Currently, the majority of the measuring and marking tools from Woodpeckers are on the FestoolProducts.com website because they complement Festool's offerings. We don't want to muddy the waters too much on that site with products from other manufacturers that don't mess well with the Festool-centric product lineup.

If I could make a suggestion... Having a toolnut.com account and ordering from that site may be a better option for you. The toolnut.com website has everything the festoolproducts.com website has and more. So, you'd still have access to all of the Festool stuff plus have the full line up of Woodworkers and other brands.

Ultimately, there are a lot of improvements to the websites that I have planned and it will continue to evolve to work better for you. As a small, family-owned and operated business, we appreciate your orders.

Meh, I bought one of these brand new for $35 off eBay a few months ago. I leave it at the table saw for setting 45 and 90 degree settings and occasionally a height setting. Perfect for that, but havent needed/used it for the other listed reasons. Anymore than $35 and I dont think I would have bought it.
If at first you don't succeed, redefine success!

@Poindexter thanks for the feedback.

Thank you for the response and explanation.  I'm no stranger to the limitations of accounting BS ;)

And apologies for the thread hijack.  I have another question, but will PM you that one.
