What’s All the Fuss About? Woodpeckers Saddle T-Squares accomplish two layout tasks other squares simply can’t. First, you can carry your pencil line across and down two adjacent edges without moving the square. This “wrap-around” effect means you can mark measurement lines on stock without common transfer errors. This is a significant advantage at the chop saw or table saw when making critical cuts-to-length.
Second, the Saddle T-Square allows you to mark lines perfectly parallel to the edge of your stock. Simply place your sharp pencil (a .9mm mechanical pencil is even better) in one of the precision-drilled holes and run the base of the square along the edge of your stock. Just a few applications include mortise and tenon layout, full-scale layout of complex joinery, precise through tenon layout and marking all sorts of hardware layouts. These couldn’t be easier, faster or more accurate. It beats connecting two measurement marks hands down.
So Many Features and Beautifully Detailed. You can absolutely trust our Saddle T-Squares to be accurate to within .001". These tools are machined on state-of the-art CNC equipment in our shop. They are made one at a time from a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum. The dimension holes are spaced in 1/32" increments (or 1mm in metric models) for exacting layout options. The blade and fence are just shy of 3" wide with the fence 3/4" deep. These stout sizes ensure positive registration against your stock.
The blade edges are beveled 30° so the engraved scales are very close to your work preventing parallax measurement errors. Scales are on both sides of the blade and are 1/16" Imperial or 1 mm metric. Even the tiny dimension holes are beveled for ease of use.
Choose An Individual Saddle T-Square Or Get The Whole Set. The Saddle T-Squares come in four sizes, 4", 6", 8" and 12". And they are also available in metric sizes of equivalent lengths. You can save money and have all your layout needs covered by ordering the Deluxe Set in either Imperial or metric versions. Deluxe Sets will be delivered in a protective case with a custom cut foam interior.
