OneTIME Tool - Poly-Gauge SS - Retired April 18, 2022
More videos are available in the Video tab below.
Woodpeckers Poly-Gauge SS brings a whole new level of ease and accuracy to machine set ups for the five most common polygon angles, 45° for squares, 54° for pentagons, 60° for hexagons, 67.5° for octagons and 75° for 12-sided dodecagons. If all the Poly-Gauge brought to the table was unmatched angle accuracy, it would be a winner, but we didn’t stop there. We raised it up off the table in horizontal mode and gave it a built-in stand to keep it perfectly vertical, too.
Poly-Gauge Stainless Steel
Complicated Angles? Simplified Set ups!
Machinery set up at obtuse (outside) angles usually involves a lot of trial and error. Table inserts that aren’t level, bevel gauges with large radius ends, and miter squares with short blades are just some of the demons that put the “error” in “trial and error”. Just finding a fixed-blade reference for any angle other than 45° can be a challenge, and adjustable miter setting devices require careful calibration and keen eyesight to see those tiny angle graduations. Woodpeckers Poly-Gauge SS brings a whole new level of ease and accuracy to machine set ups for the five most common polygon angles, 45° for squares, 54° for pentagons, 60° for hexagons, 67.5° for octagons and 75° for 12-sided dodecagons.
In addition to providing precision-milled angles (guaranteed within .0085°), Poly-Gauge SS goes further to get your settings right the first time, every time. When setting miter saws or table saw miter gauges, your gauge needs to be horizontal. However, a thin blade on a flat table can cause error by resting against rounded fence edges and uneven table inserts. Poly-Gauge SS takes care of that by raising the reference edges 9/32" above the machine surface.
When setting table saw blades and jointer fences, the multi-function knob pops off the center and becomes a magnetic stand that holds the Poly-Gauge perfectly upright while you have both hands free to adjust your machine.
Woodpeckers Poly-Gauge SS is laser cut from high quality stainless steel, then the edges are precision milled on high-speed CNC equipment. The foot that raises the tool up for accurate settings is made from anodized aluminum and forms the central base for the magnetic multi-function knob. Icons for each shape are laser cut into the blade to visually confirm you’re using the correct angle. The plastic liner in the magnetic knob keeps the blade perfectly perpendicular and protects it from scratches.
Your Poly-Gauge comes to you in a protective molded case with a custom cut foam interior for safe and convenient storage.
