Framing Squares Just Don't Cut It
Conventional framing squares may be OK for construction jobs where square means in the neighborhood of 90í«åÊdegrees. That' what you can expect from a square that's punched out by the thousands or molded out of plastic. As most woodworkers know, framing squares simply can't be trusted in tight tolerance shop work and can be difficult to use.
A Square So Good Its Guaranteed
Woodpeckers large-sized Precision Woodworking Squares offer accuracy that's so good, it's guaranteed. How precise? Their squares are machined and quality checked to be dead square within .0085 degrees or better. That amounts to about .001" per foot.
Work With Confidence
With their 26" x 16" Precision Framing Square (we also offer an 18" x 12" model and metric equivalents) you can confidently set up track saws or straight edge devices for sawing or routing operations. You know you'll make a square cut every time. These tools are also perfect for panel layout work. And unlike conventional framing squares, the blade of the 26" x 16" model lets you accurately mark all the way to the center of 4x 8 foot sheet goods.
Each and Every Square is Inspected for both perpendicularity and scale accuracy on state-of-the-art CNC inspection machines to give you the confidence to trust these precision tools.
Unmatched Precision and Finest Quality Materials
The Precision Framing Squares start the manufacturing process as a solid piece of cast aluminum tool and jig plate. This stable material is then carefully machined in cutting edge CNC machinery. The result is a single-piece blade and handle that's made square and will stay square. Two pieces of precision-machined aluminum form the cheeks of the handle. These cheeks are affixed with stainless steel dowel pins that ensure bulletproof rigidity and perfect alignment when pressed into their precision-machined holes. This kind of strength and accuracy simply cannot be matched by conventional framing squares.
The inside edge of the handle features a shoulder so it will lay flat on the work while still registering against the panel edge. The thick handle makes it easy to stand the blade upright to check square on cabinet inside corners hands free. Easy to read measurement scales are laser etched in 1/16th increments (1mm on metric models) on both sides of the blade.
You can choose to order your Precision Framing Square individually or in a set with either Imperial or metric scales and with or without a wall mountable case for safe storage and easy access.
