Default New "straddle square"

Well, Woodpecker has done it again! This thing looks wonderful! It's a saddle square that covers three sides of a piece of wood - eliminating any error introduced by moving a regular square or saddle square. Brilliant!








I just wish they'd make one with sides angled at 45 degrees for doing miters.

Thanks for the comment. If I'd of had time I'd have made a 45 degree version. I need one for a house I'm remodeling. Hopefully I'll get to it next year.

I'm heartened that "next year" is only a month away!

Thanks so much for responding, Rich. What about a straddle square that had one end at 90 degrees, and the other end of it having a 45 angle?

That's a good idea. I'll take a stab at it.

Cool!

(Gotta love it when you get to talk directly with the genius behind the curtain!)

Thanks for the compliment but the real genius is you and the other clever woodworkers who use tools and are always thinking of how it could be just a little better. I'm just the guy that makes small pieces of metal out of bigger ones. We all do our part.

I wish the 3/4 one was a 1" one or 7/8. I dont always process my lumber to 3/4. I stop when everything passing through the planer is uniform and most of the time it's > 3/4"

Guess I'm lucky my suppliers sell 4/4 or 5/4 almost pre-surfaced completely on both sides.
