From Brian Sedgeley — Tool & Applications Trainer, Festool USA
Accuracy, accuracy, accuracy... I have been using this square for over 3 years in my shop to square up everything. I prefer this over any other square out there because of the thickness and length of the square allow me to set it on my work without having to worry about balancing it. Simply stated…..It Just works !!!!!!!
The Woodpeckers 1281 12" Precision Woodworking Square is the choice of Festool National Trainer Brian Sedgeley, see why below. The square is awesome for around the shops tasks like squaring your MFT table.
Precise, accurate and meticulously machined. Those are the basics on Woodpeckers new Precision Aluminum 12” Square. Every woodworker needs a square and every woodworking project relies on the quality of a square for the quality of the finished project.
The accuracy of this square is better than .001” over the entire 8” X 12” size; a direct result of being carefully milled in multiple high RPM passes on state-of-art CNC equipment. One of the unique features of Woodpeckers Precision Aluminum Square is how its constructed. Both the blade and base are machined from a single aluminum block which results in a far higher degree of square then what is possible with the typical two piece design.
Both handles and the square are then fitted together with two chrome hardened steel pins which ensures bullet proof rigidity and alignment. Unlike many of today's mass produced, molded or stamped tools, Woodpeckers utilizes its own in house CNC manufacturing capabilities to craft these fine quality tools which you'll be proud to own and pass on for generations.
Each square is anodized for durability and laser engraved with inch scale markings for general marking and measuring reference. But by far the squares greatest attribute is how it can help you craft higher quality, more professional cabinetry and furniture. Each square includes a custom fitted block which holds the square, protects it from scratches and dings and can be wall mounted for easy access.
