OneTime Tool - Precision Framing Square
Last offered in May of 2012, these oversized Precision Woodworking Squares have grown in popularity as the go-to tool for setting up Festool MFT systems, layout and verification of cabinetry components and the ideal square for working with sheet goods.
From a size stand point, the closest similar tool is a common framing square, which is probably the most frequently used square in many wood shops. But unlike the thin, stamped squares many of us have, these new Precision Woodworking Squares are bigger, thicker, much more accurate and easier to use.
The 26 x 16 square has 24” of range along the inside of the long leg in order to reach the center of a plywood sheet. A common framing square has only 22-1/2” of reach. Our 18 x 12 version has 18” of reach.
Each of our squares is precisely machined, not stamped, from 1/4" thick aluminum tool plate to ensure dead-on perpendicularity from the first day. To give it rock solid stability, a lip is designed into the short leg so that the square can be confidently set against a board's edge while the square rests perfectly flat on its surface with no risk of the square falling off.
These Precision Woodworking Squares are available in two sizes, 26 x 16 and 18 x 12 inches with engraved inch or metric scales. Graduations are 1/16” and 1mm respectively. They can be purchase with or without a wall mountable wooden case. In fact this year we're offering a set where both sizes are contained in the same case to save wall space while still protecting the tools.
Guaranteed accuracy of .001" per foot or better.
These two sizes of Precision Woodworking Squares are only made to order. As is the case with all of our OneTime Tools, we will not charge you until the order is ready to ship (expect Paypal). The deadline to order yours is Monday August 19th, 2013. Delivery is scheduled for December of 2013.
