Woodpeckers Holiday Countdown event started today. For 10 days until December 12th, 2018, they will reveal a single retired One Time Tool each day. Once the tool is revealed, you’ll have an opportunity to purchase it until their supplies run out. They only have a limited number of these One Time Tools, so if you miss them this time you’ll have to hope they have a second run of the tool.
Woodpeckers is only allowing orders through their website and since these are One Time Tools, there will be no back orders.
Update: It looks like they reveal the new tool each day at 10am EST.
Today they revealed their edge tool sharpening guide as the first of 10 tools.
This tool is a “go, no go” gauge when you are sharpening chisels and plane irons. The gauge is made from 3/32″ thick 17-4 stainless steel. The interior angle is 90° with a tolerance of .0085° for making sure your chisel or iron is perfectly square before sharpening.
Around the exterior are 9 angles for checking the bevel angle of a sharpened chisel or iron. The first 8 angles range from 15° to 50° in 5° increments with the ninth being 54°.
