Start with a Highly Precise Square. Woodworkers know chisels and plane blades perform best and are easiest to use when the business end is square to the sides of the blade. The Edge Tool Sharpening Gauge starts with a built-in square that’s more precise than most other commonly available shop squares.
How? Glad you asked. The gauge is made using special 17-4 stainless steel. Because of the stability of this kind of steel, we can easily maintain a perpendicularity tolerance of .0085° or about .001" per foot. And while all Woodpeckers squares are made to this same exacting tolerance, they are often too large to use in this application. The inside length of each leg is 3" with a thickness of 3/32" making it the perfect size and thickness for inspecting edge tools.
Of course, each square is precisely machined and individually inspected using state-of-the-art optical measuring systems.
Nine Commonly Used Bevel Angles. Cut into the outside edge of the gauge are just about all the various bevel angles woodworkers need for their chisels and plane blade irons. These precision bevels start at 15° and progress in 5° increments to 50° with the ninth being 54°. These notches have a relief cut where your sharp edge is placed so it will not be damaged.
This is the perfect tool for woodworkers striving for the optimum cutting angle on their edge tools.
