Seth, what length did you get? Eric


Both. Small one (7") will go in the site kit, long (12") will live in the shop.

I've been working on a project that requires several angle settings so I've been using the new Woodpecker sliding bevel as well as a couple of others.   I'm finding the sliding "Tee" knob somewhat annoying -- it seems to slide into my way most of the time and/or be at an awkward position for locking the square, I would much prefer just a knurled knob for locking the square. 

I hate to take more points away but when using this square with my BCT Angle Master Pro the non-magnetic stainless blade looses points -- it's much easier setting my Veritas sliding bevel because it snaps right onto the AMP & allows for one hand locking of the thumb lever.
Normally the non-magnetic stainless would be a plus but not with the Angle Master Pro.
Just some observations while I'm working.
