Woodpeckers 300mm Woodworking RuleWP_WWR300
The Woodpeckers 300mm Woodworking Rule a superior heavy-duty rule with accurate laser engraved markings on a 30 degree bevel; it also has a standard and a centre scale, plus it sits flat.
What makes Woodpeckers WoodWorking Rules our Best Sellers?
First it's much more accurate with precise laser engraved markings. Second it's straighter and heavier. Third it sits flat because of a recess down the center of the bottom surface. Fourth, it has both a standard and a center scale. Fifth, the markings are engraved on a 30 degree bevel for easy alignment to pencil marks. And finally, it looks nicer.
When you look at all the different rules being sold in retail stores, they're all pretty much intended for framing houses or general purpose use without any thought on how to make them better for those of us who build furniture and cabinets.
Tape measures are great if you're building a shed. They're not dependably accurate enough for finished furniture parts. Tape measures also don't make good straight edges to draw lines with. For that we usually look for the nearest scrap piece of lumber that we hope is straight.
Compare that to the application specific engineering that went into these new Woodworking Rules and you'll begin to appreciate the advantages. There is even a finger groove down the center to help steer the rule in to place.
I already owned the 1200mm and 600mm versions. They're just great and this little guy is sometimes easier to use for small measurements. I highly recommend getting the rule stop 2" also. Combined it's a really useful tool.
I feel confident in nominating all four of the rules in this range as the best woodworking rules in the industry. Fine precise easy to read. The zero centre marking on one side o the rule I feel is inspired, and in my opinion is one of the major reasons for carpenter/cabinet makers choosing woodpeckers products. Handle one, do a little marking out, and you won't want to give it back.
As you'd expect from Woodpecker, this woodworking rule is flawless. However, it also feels a joy to use - even nicer than Starrett and Moore & Wright. My Moore & Wright measuring tools have been top quality and felt nice in the hand. This Woodpecker rule feels even nicer and looks great in the metal. It's certainly a lot nicer in hand than Starrett, which I found had sharp/rough feeling edges compared to this lovely Woodpecker. In addition, this Woodpecker rule has some neat touches designed for a woodworker, as opposed to being designed for engineers.
