Hi

I know a hot topic with a lot of woodpeckers neg posts

But it would be cool to see some posts of some delivered tools

As I think a few items have been delivered this year. And we don’t hear about that

Come on show us some pictures of actuall woodpeckers tools.

Congrats.  I have several Woodpeckers products.  The quality is great.  I can’t see any reason why people would be so upset with them.  Their products are top notch.

*shrugs* I have some Woodpeckers stuff that I am happy with :) Waiting for the new router jig too.





The challenge I have is everything I buy in imperial I also buy in metric as I keep switching between them  [crying]

Broke out the"Variable Router Jig" router jig this morning and got busy routing for some glass doors. Really nice machining. Ran the Hitachi M12 V2 around the first pass, adjusted the depth down a bit, got a nice flat channel for the glass. Very stable platform. I have a very large amount of these to do, and of course there are about 10 different sizes... Arghhh! The jig should take the a lot of the hassle out of it. Easily adjusted. Great work, Woodpeck.com!!! As shown in the pictures, I first secured the door frame with dogs and clamping elements, then clamped the Variable Router Jig on top of the workpiece.

I'm glad I bought the 32 inch extra rail set.

I also got the 1281 square, it was a good decision. I'm pretty hard on tools and the shop floor being concrete doesn't help. Hopefully I'll be able to keep this square fairly scar free.

The WP parallel guides often function as my fence. Easy to zero, and allows a way to measure in both imperial and metric.



I had made some MDF jigs for doing corners in the past. When WP offered up their round over jig set as a OTT, I ordered a set. Only used it a couple of times, but I will get years of use from them. So far I have been happy with it. Another good purchase from them :)
