Is this the closest they've ever come to a traditional speed square?

@Lettusbee, yes, this and the OneTime Tool Carpenters Square, shown below.

Anyone plan on getting the six inch one?? I know I want the smaller one, but can not justify both of them, when I can use the smaller one, my 1281 and a speed square to do pretty much the same things...

In the past, it seems this is one of those OTTs that people actually clamor in support for, alongside perhaps the large framing square and the Paolini pocket rule. 

So let's hear it DelVe square lovers - do you actually use this thing a lot and which size?

I'm a fan of the smaller DelVe Square.  It fits nicely in my shop apron.  Very useful.  I don't need the larger one or any of the cases. Although the cases probably help with shipping

It's perfect for face frames and small projects.  Love it.

I have the original aluminum small one and use it constantly, every day I'm in the shop.  If I lost it, I'd immediately try to get another one.

To those with other stainless and aluminum Woodpeckers tools, does the joint loosen over time?

Shane, there was also a 6" Carpenter's Square.  I just found it on Woodpeckers' website (https://www.woodpeck.com/carpentersq6.html).  I've attached a photo of mine.  BTW, it's no more (or less) accurate than a Swanson Speed Square.

Yes, we sell the 6" Carpenters Square (https://www.toolnut.com/woodpeckers-crpsq6-inrd-6-carpenters-square.html). Apologies, I thought the question was specially about OneTime Tools.

Shane,

     Would you have any access to the 6” one-time tool carpenter square? Regretfully did not order one when it was available.

Thanks

Rob

Even though paying with Canadian funds and paying for terrible shipping costs, I'm seriously considering buying one of these. I can envision a number of uses for these squares!

That is of course if I can't find a Canadian equivalent of these squares.  [sad]

Give Woodpeckers a call they may have a couple of leftovers.

I had an issue with one of mine and they sent me a new one and I then returned the defective one in the same packaging.

FWIW...I have a metric and an imperial version and I love using both of them. Good purchase.  [big grin]

I have the one with the 4 holes in the base, and really like. It mostly stays in the shop though.   So I think I'll be ordering up the Delve square.  I use .9mm pencils for trim work, and they don't cooperate with the rougher casting of the Swanson speed square.

This one looks like a winner.

My only reservation is the stepped edge. But there appears to be enough contact surface.

@Upscale Delve Square (https://www.ultimatetools.ca/collections/woodpeckers/products/delve-square-ss-onetime-tool)

I order several times from Ultimatetools, always accurate and fast. Free shipping over $150CAD

Like Shane said today is the pre-order deadline.

I also pre-order the Mini-Systainer cordless drills (https://www.ultimatetools.ca/products/mini-systainer-t-loc-for-festool-cordless-drills). That is the first time I see that kit on a Canadian retailer.

Even though paying with Canadian funds and paying for terrible shipping costs, I'm seriously considering buying one of these. I can envision a number of uses for these squares!

That is of course if I can't find a Canadian equivalent of these squares.  [sad]

@Shane Holland Sorry for the hijack.

I'd received mail a few weeks back from Woodpeckers stating that these might ship much earlier than expected (July vs. Oct). (I'd ordered directly from Woodpeckers.)

My credit card was charged today so this OTT should be arriving within a week or so I assume.

It'll be nice to be able to carry this in my shop apron.

Arrived today, this is the quickest turnaround for any OTT I've purchased. I bought the smaller Delve square to keep in my apron pocket since the 1281 can be a bit unwieldy at times.

As usual, superbly constructed; a nice piece to add to my Woodpeckers arsenal.

Two days of ownership and I can honestly say "I don't know how I worked in the shop without this!". It fits perfectly in my apron pocket so it's always at hand. I'm in the middle of constructing a router cabinet to fit within the base of my Jessem router table. The Delve square has been incredibly useful in its construction (along with a ton of other WP gear like the triangles, the TS-3 and TS-6 and of course my go to square - the 1281).

Well worth the price paid. I'm impressed by the all the functionality this little square has to offer.
