Woodpeckers StoryStick Pro is the new and improved version of Woodpeckers original StoryStick. Along with many new easy to use features, it's also now available in four models, 24", 600mm, 48", and 1200mm. The Story Stick Pro has both a standard and center scale on the top surface making it easier to read. It also now features clear double tabs. The double tabs extend out from both edges of the track thus creating a mirror image of your setup. Now you can set the Story Stick up once and use it from both edges of the board or both sides of a cabinet without having to reconfigure the tabs.
The mirroring feature makes marking a cabinet for hinges, hardware or drawer slides a cinch. Simply set the tabs to your desired dimensions, snug the knobs and you're set to go. Use opposite sides of the tabs to mark opposite sides of the cabinet. This approach guarantees that both sides will be the same.
The Story Stick Pro is available in either imperial or metric version and includes four tabs and (1) stop. Additional tabs are available in packages of four.
Caliper Arms Expand the Story Stick Pro's Capabilities
Caliper arms (sold separately) allow you to quickly create a physical "stick" to use as a cut-to reference. The arms are offset to the inside from one direction and the outside from the other. The inside offset is used for the inside measurements and the outside offset for outside measurements.
Say you want to put a perfectly fitting shelf between two cabinet sides. Simply adjust the arms out until they contact the sides, lock them in place and use that physical example to set your saw fence that distance from the blade.
The same approach can be used for cutting a lid to the exact size of a box.
It's not uncommon to use an existing part to cut more of the same size. That's what the Story Stick Pro with Caliper Arms does for you, only faster and more accurately.
