OneTIME Tool - Bevel Gauge - 2014 - Retired July 21, 2014
Get it right the first time, every time, with Woodpeckers Precision Bevel Gauge.
Bevel gauges are sometimes referred to as sliding T-bevels or adjustable bevel squares. Whatever name you go by, this layout tool definitely falls into the “must-have” category for any serious carpenter, cabinetmaker, woodworker or DIYer.
Despite its simple appearance and compact size, the bevel gauge is a remarkably versatile tool. Thanks to a blade that can swing, slide and lock in any position, the bevel gauge can “capture” and transfer virtually any angle. When you need to get a perfect fit in a corner that's far from perfectly square (a common condition in many houses), a bevel gauge is indispensable.
But this tool earns its keep in many other ways –like making it easy to set precise bevel angles on table saws, circular saws and even drill press tables, for example.
Not surprisingly, the bevel gauge was one of the first tools manufactured by the Stanley Rule & Level Company over 150 years ago. The best-functioning versions of these heirloom tools served as models for a new classic from Woodpeckers that can also be proudly handed down to future generations.
Why not have the best?
Woodpeckers new Precision Bevel Gauges offer machine-shop accuracy in a design that exploits the best qualities of anodized aluminum and stainless steel. The aluminum body is durable but lightweight, with a wear resistant anodized surface that helps it stand out in your toolbox.
The blade and all key elements of the locking mechanism are machined from stainless steel, which means that you’ll never have to worry about rust impeding the locking action or causing an angle setting to slip. And like the best bevel gauges of yesteryear, ours have the locking mechanism at the base of the body rather than on the side.
Woodpeckers Precision Bevel Gauges come in two sizes, 7” and 12”. The smaller bevel gauge is perfect for laying out joinery and attaining exact fits in typical furniture parts. To transfer angles for larger cabinetry, custom built-ins or other trim carpentry, our 12” gauge can't be beat. Any you might also want to consider our Angle Reference Plate. This indispensable tool is ideal for presetting your Bevel Gauge to a specific angle.
The Bevel Gauges and Angle Reference Plate are part of our OneTime Tool program and are only made to order in our shop just outside Cleveland, Ohio. Deadline to order yours is Monday July 21st. Delivery is scheduled for November, 2014.
