Woodpecker Hook Rules

by / / Uncategorized

We manufacture the hanging rules in 3 sizes, 6″, 12″ and 24″. Each comes with a wall-mounted rack-it™ to keep your hook rulers secure, but always at hand. Each size is available separately, or save money with the complete set. Keep a 6″ in your apron pocket, a 12″ on your bench and the 24″ hanging on your table saw for the next furniture project. We also engraved the end of the hook to check or adjust the height of the saw blades, cutters and your drill. We have been using hook rules since the last version in our test store and have found the hook to be great. most of the time. But there are times when it`s an obstacle. Therefore, this time we have changed the engraving of the graduations to make it the most versatile rule of your shop.

On one side, the scale is read from left to right (with the hook). On the other hand, the scale is read from right to left (from the square end of the ruler). Do you need to measure from an indoor corner? Register from the end of the square. Do you need to measure from an edge? Turn over and use the hook. Both sides show a ladder in sixteenths and another in thirty seconds. For those who prefer to work in millimeters, we also offer a metric version. Hook rules have been around for ages. Your advantage is the ability to quickly and accurately reference the starting edge of a board.

Woodpeckers took this idea and developed a simple hook that attaches to Woodpeckers` woodworking rules*. The hook stop is especially useful when working with longer rules. Hook rules have been around for ages. Your advantage is the ability to quickly and accurately reference the starting edge of a board. We took this idea and developed a simple hook that attaches to Woodpecker`s woodworking rules. The Hook Stop is not compatible with the old rules of woodworking as well as with any 6″ vintage. The way to find out is to look for two threaded holes at the top, located 1/4 inch and 3/4 inch away. If threaded holes are present, the hook stop is fixed.

Rules purchased after 1.12.2011 should have the holes in them. Where is the edge? So often in stores, this is a critical question. Trying to visually align a ruler with the edge of a board opens up a possibility of error, especially if your lighting is marginal and you have a callus or two on your fingertips. Our new tool, the hanging ruler, adds a small feature – a hook – to the traditional shop ruler and instantly improves your accuracy. Simply place the hook against the edge of your board and the zero will be recorded instantly. It even works perfectly if the edge has already been rounded or beveled (as long as the profile is less than 1/4″ deep). The peak rule meets all these criteria and more. They are available in lengths of 12″, 24″, 36″ and 49-1/2″ as well as lengths of 300 mm, 600 mm, 900 mm and 1200 mm. I have the 12″ and 24″ rules in my workshop. The first thing you notice when you pick one up is the thickness and weight of the ruler.

It has a recess in the middle of the bottom surface that ensures that it stays flat and does not tip over. It also has recesses on the front for your fingers to make it easy to move the line on a wooden surface. The marks are laser etched on a 30-degree surface, which makes them easily visible and brings them directly to the surface of the plate, so you don`t have to worry about parallax issues. Q: How wide is the blade? A: 0.75 inches wide for 6-inch models and 1 inch for 12-inch and 24-inch modelsQ: Can I order the hook ruler without Rack-it? A: The hook rule is currently only available with rack-it. Q: What is the width of the cap? A: The 6-inch headphones are 1.25 inches and the 12- and 24-inch fairings are 1.5 inches. Q: Are the original hook rules compatible with the new Rack It? A: Yes. The original hook rules adapt to the new rack. There are also various accessories at Highland Woodworking to add stops and end hooks to make the ruler even more useful! Imagine being two or three feet away from the zero end of the ruler, instead of stretching to try to keep the zero end flush with the edge of the board, you can just hang that end on the board and off you go. Why use a metal ruler? A tape measure is great for breaking down your inventory into manageable parts for milling and initial machining, but I don`t trust them for the final layout. I always think, “Does that little metal hook at the end of the ruler move back and forth? Is he stuck between the measures? Are the dimensions the same when suspended above an edge or pressed against a surface? For the final disposition, I want a rule that gives me precise measurements every time. Like all OneTIME tools, Woodpecker`s crochet rulers are made to order, precision machined, and meticulously tested at their manufacturing facility in Strongsville, Ohio (south of Cleveland).

When I do layout, I often have to draw lines on boards 8″ to 18″ wide. My combo square works well enough for boards up to about 10″ wide, but the Woodpeckers Precision T-Square works great for this size and larger.
