Title: Woodpecker Rule Stop and Ruler Combo
Post by: OXCanada on January 01, 2017, 09:52 PM
Hi - I am looking for a way to quickly and repetitively mark out mortises and tenons as well as other layout marks for furniture building.

I was thinking about getting the woodpecker rule stop and ruler to do this. That way I can mark using the end of the rule for a depth stop marking and the sides of the ruler as well. Right now I use a combo square to do the majority of my layouts.

Anyone have any experience with these or any suggestions for the best tool for the job?

I use their Paolini stainless 6" ruler.  It's one of my favorite tools.  Great for marking mortises or setback gaps for many woodworking tasks.  ideal for setting the guide rail a consistent distance from the edge of a piece of wood as well.

Paolini Pocket Rule - 6"/150mm Aluminum
Shipping Nov 2016.
$32.99

It's a one-time tool, but suggest you call Woodpeckers as they often have some available.

If you can find them (they were a Woodpecker OTT), their T- squares would be ideal.

I have the TS-3 and TS-6 and find that I use these constantly, especially when marking lines for Dominoes. I also find I make use of the holes quite often to scribe layout lines.

I'm going Starrett 100mm double square, 150 combination and 300 combination squares for that type of work.

That stop looks just like the Woodpeckers one.
