Woodpecker Rule Stop and Ruler Combo
« 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.

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 use this:
Czeck Edge Ruler Stop

plus this:
Sterling Combination Square Rulers (scroll down)

That stop looks just like the Woodpeckers one.
