1283 Woodworking Square
Striving for accuracy doesn’t always stay in the cabinet shop. If your work (or passion) takes you to outdoor construction sites or places where rough weather and rough duty can take a toll on your tools, you need the new 1283 Woodworking Square from Woodpeckers. The 1283 has all the features that made the 1281 the most popular tool in our line-up, but it’s made from G-10, an ultra-strong, glass fiber reinforced composite material (think ballistic panel) designed to take anything the weather or a job site can dish out.
Woodpeckers 1283 Woodworking Square
G-10 is completely impervious to water damage and it doesn’t shrink, swell or twist when it’s machined or when exposed to extreme temperatures, hot or cold. It survives falls from ladders and roof tops onto dirt, gravel and even concrete. It’s been popular in stocks and grips for tactical weapons for several years and now Woodpeckers is bringing G-10 to the workshop.
But before we engraved our name on the square, we had to be sure this remarkable material would stand up to rugged use and still be accurate. After strenuous testing, we’re happy to say, we stand behind the 1283 with the same Lifetime Guarantee that covers our anodized aluminum and stainless-steel squares.
The 1283 is perfect for both outdoor use and remodeling jobsites. The white engraving on the black blade of the square is readable in both glaring sunlight and the most poorly lit basements. The blade is engraved with one scale reading from the outside of the beam and the other reading from the inside, making it ideal for both machinery set-up and project layout. The blade is 12" long and the beam is 8".
We didn’t leave out any of the features found in the rest of the Woodpeckers square family. Like all our squares, the 1283 has a lip that keeps the beam flat on your stock without you holding on. The wide base stands up solidly when checking assemblies for square and when setting up equipment. And, the inside corner is notched so your scribe lines will go right to the edge.
If you need a square that’s guaranteed to ±.002" per foot and can take on the rough-and-tumble world of a construction site, the 1283 is right for you. Each 1283 comes complete with a wall-mountable Rack-It™ to keep your square in plain sight and ready to go to work.
Like all Woodpeckers products, the 1283 G-10 Woodworking Square is precisely machined and carefully inspected in our Strongsville, Ohio factory (just south of Cleveland). We’re introducing this tool with special pre-production pricing. The deadline to order yours is Monday, March 22, 2021. Delivery is scheduled for August, 2021.
