What makes Woodpeckers Precision Woodworking 1281 Squares our Best Sellers?

A Square Must Be Square, Period.

Our ever-popular 1281 Square is made square and built to stay that way. For years and generations to come, it's a tool you can trust every time you reach for it. You know how important working square is for all your cabinet and furniture projects. Parts that aren't perfectly square cause endless problems requiring complicated workarounds. The end result of out-of-square parts is a compromised project and lots of frustration. Our precision 300mm square will keep your parts and project on track.

Unmatched Precision and Quality. The 1281 Square starts as a solid piece of very expensive, extremely stable cast aluminum tool plate. This large plate is carefully machined in multiple high RPM passes on our state-of-art CNC equipment. 

Once we have a perfectly machined square we add two additional pieces of precision-machined aluminum to form cheeks for the handle. These cheeks are fitted to the square with two stainless steel pins that ensure bulletproof rigidity and perfect alignment. This kind of strength and precision simply cannot be matched by squares made using separate blade and handle parts.

Many Features Make the 1281 Square A Joy to Use. The first thing you'll notice is the heft of the tool and how good it feels in your hand. In use, you'll discover how the square rests hands-free on the edge of a board thanks to the lip created by the cheeks of our special handle design. The design also enables the square to securely stand on its beefy, 19mm thick handle edge. These design features make machine setup and squaring case parts a breeze.

More user-friendly features include a finger slot in the blade to hold it exactly in place when checking square ends. We even mill a notch at the square's inside corner so you can zero-out your layout lines all the way to the edge of a board. Easy to read measurement scales are laser etched in 1mm increments on both sides of the blade. We also offer the 1281 Square in metric, 1mm scales. All 1281 Squares come in a custom-fitted case that's ready to mount on your shop wall.

Our Guarantee. We're so confident in the accuracy of the 1281 Square we offer it with a Lifetime Guarantee to stay square to within one-thousandth inch or we'll repair or replace it upon return and inspection by us.

    Expensive but worth every penny..

    this is the second tool ive bought from the woodpeckers range in the last couple of weeks , its a solid and beautifully made woodworking tool as soon as you take it out of the holder you can see and feel the quality of this Square.. Used it for setting up both my table and my mitre saw blades and they are cutting perfectly square , will definitely buy more tools from the woodpecker range.

    Woodpeckers 1281 square

    Arrived well packaged and very quickly.
    This isn't a cheap bit of kit, but it feels solid and is comfortable to use.
    I already have the smaller 641 square but needed something a bit bigger.
    The markings are easy to read, it's accurate and so far it's doing exactly what I wanted.

    Pride of place in my workshop

    This was a treat from my mother in law for fitting her kitchen.
    I have contemplated buying one for ages. Now I have it I realise I should have took the plunge ages ago. Its worth every penny. Very accurate and well made.
    Plus its a real pleasure to have on my workshop wall which inspires a urge to make quality items!
