Arrow Woodpecker T-Squares (in metric!)

I just got an email from Woodpecker RE: an offer for pre-ordering their new metric T-squares. Available in 75 and 150mm. I ordered a 75mm, I think it will come in handy for laying out dominoes and router mortises. Just FYI, you need to pre-order by 11/26/10.

Thanks for the heads up, Jim. I love Woodpecker's stuff.

I just ordered one too.

That aircraft aluminium must be heavy stuff, nearly twice the price of the square to ship it to my part of the world.
Really wanted one too.

I don't see the problem... Go ahead and purchase that little T-Square and simply send it to me to hold for you -- that way you'll save a bundle on shipping.

Which one are we getting? :sdrool:

Hmm...s'pose I could do that. Dunno though, something about that idea leaves me feeling empty or something.
Hang on, I'd want the metric one and you would want the old fashioned imperial job, so that won't work. Thanks for the offer anyway!

You can always order one of each...

(Which by the way, I'm thinking of doing.)

No Chris, I can use either metric or imperial, so there wouldn't be any problem for me........ Or, like Ron has suggested, you could just order us both. That way you would save even more on the shipping expense!

Yeah, and thousands are spending millions so that I can get a job.

That'll be the day...
