Mark the edge and surface with the same dimension Place the desired dimension at the end of your plate and mark it at the end of your edge ruler on the surface and edge. Use the optional edge ruler stop to repeat this setting accurately and easily as often as needed. Mark the edge and surface in the same dimension By placing the desired dimension at the end of your plate, as shown in the photo, you can mark both the surface and the edge at the same time. As mentioned above, it works as easily and accurately from right to left as it does from left to right. For landscaping work on the narrow edge of the tree, most of the typical rules of woodworking are a bit heavy. They usually need to be aligned at the front of your stock, but they`re wider than the edge you`re trying to measure, so you can`t access the stock to mark it without abandoning the alignment you just carefully adjusted. Working on the front of a room is usually a little easier, but you may still struggle to keep the edge of the ruler parallel to the edge of your work. I have the Woodpecker Story Stick, how would you hack it to replicate the features of new leaders? Over the past couple of years, I`ve made a conscious effort to be purely metric, as finer tolerances are easier to achieve, so I only have to look at half of their periods. Another fine peak product.
Never understand the problem of cost. If you own a business, it`s a depreciation. If your DIY, I`m sure you`re spending money on other items that aren`t necessary…. I love Woodpecker tools and that they are made in the USA. Always support American companies. The peak edge rule exists in longer lengths. Surprisingly, peaks are cheaper. The long leg of the edge ruler is 3/4″ wide, so you can find the center of the edge of 2x (1-1/2″ actually) materials.
Woodpeckers New Woodworkers Edge Rule makes your life easier by wrapping around the edge of your tree, giving you an accurate scale on both sides. The short side is only 3/8″ wide, which gives you plenty of space to mark a tree as thin as 7/16″. The long side extends 3/4″ on the face of. This new rule fascinates me a little because it is not only „appropriate“ for a precision rule, but also an interesting concept. I know there have been times when I use a hook stick or tape measure at the end of a board, and I don`t keep it parallel to the edge. It may not make much difference, but it`s just another place to introduce mistakes. The short leg of the edge line is 3/8″ wide, so you can make marks on the shaft as narrow as 7/16″. The 3/8 inch width also allows you to use the rulers as a center viewfinder for a 1″ (3/4″) actual material edge. When drawing lines from each edge of the board with the short leg, the center point is between the lines (or on the line). I had just copied an article about the new Woodpeckers tools when I saw the email featuring the new edge rule. It seems that lately they have been producing more specialized tools at prohibitive prices.
Measurements in the middle of the field Even if you don`t work at the edge of your cane, you`ll still find the edge ruler at hand. The streamlined shape makes it easy to move on your tree as a thin, flat line, and the beveled edges get the ladder right next to your tree where you need it. Measuring the narrow edge of the stick with typical rulers is a bit tedious. Getting the ruler parallel to the stick and leaving room to set a tic sign can be quite a juggling act. Working on the front of a room is usually a little easier, but you can still struggle to keep the ruler in parallel with your work. Woodpecker`s Woodworkers Edge Rule makes your life easier by wrapping around the edge of your tree and giving you an accurate balance on both sides. The short side is only 3/8″ wide, which gives you plenty of space to mark a tree as thin as 7/16″. The long side extends 3/4″ on the front of your room.
Whether you`re working on the edge or on the surface, the edge ruler corner always keeps you properly aligned. Admittedly, the prices were lower than I expected, especially from the peaks. I ordered the set because I can see its usefulness. The new peak edge rule was developed to make layout work easier and more accurate. Aligning the ruler with the edge of a board allows you to focus on your marks instead of making sure your ruler is parallel to the edge. The idea (I haven`t tried it yet, but I don`t see why it wouldn`t work) is to use one of the two tracks under the stick of the story to grasp the edge, and then use the tabs offset on the surface to mark the measure. I think I have a few WP flip stops that match the bill, although anything you can fix at the bottom should work. cheaper than I thought when I read peaks. The angle in the edge ruler is 89°. This slightly sharp angle brings the contact between your part and the edge ruler to the outer edges, which means that slight deviations in the edge of your part will not affect your measurement. Both edges are beveled so that the scale is right next to your work, simplifying marking and minimizing parallax errors. The edge rulers are anodized for surface protection and give them our well-known „peak red“ color.
The 1/32″ measuring scale is laser engraved with an accuracy of ±0.004″ of cumulative total errors over the entire length. Measurements in the Inside Corners hardware installation typically require a measurement referenced by a cross member. like the rails and pillars of a cabinet frame. The edge ruler falls perfectly to zero at the point of intersection and aligned with the stock. Mark the edge and surface with the same dimension Place the desired dimension at the end of your plate and mark it at the end of your edge ruler on the surface and edge. Use the optional edge ruler stop to repeat this setting accurately and easily as often as needed. Find the center of nominal stock Whether your stock is a hair of more than 3/4″ or a hair of less than 3/4, you can find the center by making two markers with the 3/8″ side of your edge ruler. The same goes for `two-by` building materials, which are quite close to 1-1/2″. Use opposite lines marked on the 3/4″ side of the edge ruler to find the exact center.
