Limited Run Carpenter Squares

April 30, 2011 Leave a comment

Anyone who’s used a Carpenter Square knows it’s quicker than a framing square, more accurate than a combination square and if stored in your apron pocket, handier than either.

Unlike a conventional square, this Carpenter Square rests flat, hands-free on your surface while the foot automatically squares the tool up with the board’s edge, ensuring precise 45 and 90 degree angles.

Best of all, these Carpenter Squares are CNC machined from solid billets of aircraft grade aluminum. Machining it from one piece is the best way to make a precision tool that’ll last a life time.

These One-Time Tools are available in two different sizes, 3-3/4″ (95mm) and 6″ (150mm). Each tool has a 7/32″ thick blade, a 23/32″ wide foot and is engraved with permanent scale markings. Made in U.S.A.

The Carpenter Squares are part of our One-Time Tool program and are made to order.

Order deadline is Monday May 9th.

Tools will ship the first week of July 2011.

Rabbet Gauges – Limited Run

April 4, 2011 Leave a comment

Introducing Woodpeckers newest One-Time Tools, three different Rabbet Gauges. What’s a rabbet gauge? It’s a tool designed to help woodworker’s layout rabbets before cutting.

Rabbets are most commonly created with a table saw or router. Most often they’re cut with router bits that have bearing guides for setting one dimension. Straight bits or saw blades on the other hand have the advantage of allowing you to create any size rabbet you might need.

In either case at least one of the dimensions are reached with a series of trial and error cuts. A better way is to accurately mark off where the finish cuts should be. That’s where the Rabbet Gauges come in.

With these tools it’s very easy to scribe a line on both faces so you have a target to shoot for. In fact if you use a scribing knife you can reduce chipping along the edge. A pencil mark is also a very nice marking option. The trick when using these gauges is to stop your cut just short of the pencil mark. Keep in mind that the steps in the gauges are exactly the finished dimension so the cut should be just at but not into the pencil line.

Three different sizes are available:

  • TRG-1614 (1/16″, 1/8″, 3/16″, 1/4″)
  • TRG-51612 (5/16″, 3/8″, 7/16″, 1/2″)
  • TRG-91624 (9/16″, 5/8″, 11/16″, 3/4″)

No matter if you are scribing or drawing the line, the Woodpeckers Rabbet Gauge makes rabbeting much easier. By providing an accurate, consistent and easy to maneuver gauge for one of woodworkings most common operations, you’re sure to get plenty of use from these fine American made tools.

Each gauge is precision machined from a solid block of aluminum then anodized for durability and engraved with rabbet dimensions.

Please keep in mind that these are One-Time Tools and can only be ordered up until 11:59pm Monday April 11th 2011.

NOTE: Tools are made to order and ship the week of May 23, 2011.

Limited Run Woodpecker Saddle T- Squares

March 8, 2011 Leave a comment

Introducing Woodpeckers precision machined aluminum Combination Saddle T-Square. A handy NEW tool that makes accurate marking easier than ever.

By combining the benefits of a saddle square with the precision of a T-Square you have the best of both worlds. The saddle squares features makes it possible to draw razor accurate lines on both the face and edge of your work piece without having to move a thing. Imagine how much simpler it will be to cut a board to length when you can see the line from two sides.

Now imagine being able to instantly place your pencil an exact distance from a board’s edge and draw a perfectly straight line while maintaining that exact distance. That’s made possible by a series of perfectly machined, 1 mm diameter holes spaced 1/32″ apart (1 mm spacing for the metric version). Say hello to super accurate layouts and better joinery!

These new Saddle T-Squares are 2.9″ wide with a 3/4″ long saddle. They are available in two styles, imperial or combination imperial and metric. Either style is available in a 4″ (100mm) or 6″ (150mm) length. Made in USA!

Your chance to order one of these unique tools ends midnight March 21.

Click here to order now!

This “One-Time Tool” is part of our one-time production run program. So get yours now because when they’re gone, they’re gone!

NOTE: Tools are made to order and ship the week of April 18.

Make Beautiful Boxes By Adding A Few Splines

March 7, 2011 Leave a comment

The Eagle America Spline Jig was designed for your table saw to save you time and help you safely create strong, decorative joints. Used when making fine furniture, picture frames and boxes, spline joints are one of the most beautiful methods of joinery used in woodworking.

You can use contrasting wood tones or various spline thicknesses to create decorative accents. Spline joints are not only attractive but they feature extra gluing surfaces when compared to a plain joint, making them one of the strongest joints you can make.

The jig measures 12″ W x 24″ L and features an embedded t-track with two stop blocks. Use both stop blocks to sandwich and cut splines in narrow projects, one stop block to clamp and index cuts on medium sized projects or remove both stop blocks for larger projects such as boxes.

The base of the jig is made from durable 1/2″ HDPE which creates a smooth, non-marring surface that slides easily across your table saw top. The adjustable 18″ miter bar will fit in any standard 3/4″ miter slot. Made in USA!

We also recommend using our Thin Rip Jig which allows you to safely and accurately cut thin splines on the left-hand side of the blade so there is no burning, binding or kickback.
