WOODPECKERS 1281 PRECISION WOODWORKING SQUARE - 12" X 8"
The core of the 1281 is a precisely machined square milled from cast and ground aluminum tool plate…the most stable aluminum in the world. The stability of the material and the methods we use to machine the core allow us to hold tolerance to ±.0085°…that’s within one thousandth of an inch at the far end of the 12-inch blade.
To this highly accurate core, we add cheeks to make the base thicker. The cheeks are narrower than the core by a quarter-inch, forming a shoulder not found in traditional square designs. The shoulder allows the square to rest on the edge of a board without you holding on. This is one of the signature features of Woodpeckers squares, and one you’ll never understand how you lived without, once you’ve used it. To keep the shoulder from interfering with your layout work, we notched it in the corner, allowing you to mark all the way to the edge of your board. The cheeks are mounted with press-fit stainless steel alignment pins. The precision of the one-piece core with pinned cheeks can’t be matched by squares made with a straight blade riveted to a separate handle.
The 1281 Square is a joy to use. The first thing you'll notice is the heft and balance. In use, you'll discover how the woodworking square rests hands-free on the edge of a board thanks to the lip created by the cheeks. The design also enables the square to securely stand on its beefy, 3/4” thick handle edge, making machine setup and squaring case parts a breeze. More user-friendly features include a finger slot in the blade to hold it exactly in place when checking square ends. Easy-to-read measurement scales are laser engraved in sixteenth-inch increments on both sides of the blade, or if you prefer, we also make the 1281 in metric. All 1281 Squares come in a custom-fit wall-mountable case that keeps your square protected and always within easy reach.
We take great pride in the design and manufacturing of these squares. So much so that we will repair or replace your 1281 anytime you find it to be out of tolerance. No fine print, no disclaimers. If it’s not square, we’ll make it square or replace it.
