Who’s ever thought: “the problem with this T-square is that it doesn’t do any angles other than 90?” While that might sound absurd, the idea evidently has some merit. Woodpeckers just released a new one-time tool — the Posi-Lock T-square — a T-square with an adjustable angle head.
This new T-square has an adjustable head that can set from 0 to 70° in either direction. What’s more is that it has positive angle stops every 5°, plus at 22-1/2° and 67-1/2°, using precisely machines holes and a spring-loaded indexing ball. If you need a different angle, you can still lock the blade between detents.
The blade is made from stainless steel with a satin finish, and the head is made from Woodpeckers’ classic red-anodized aluminum.
The blade has scribing notches every 1/16″ along the blade and a laser etched scale in increments of 1/32″ on both edges. The total tolerance over the length of the blade is ± .004″.
Woodpeckers will be selling three Posi-Lock T-Squares, in 12″, 24″, and 32″ sizes. The 12″ version is $130, the 24″ is $150, and the 32″ is $170. They are also selling a set with all three T-squares for $440.
Each square comes with a wall-mountable “Rack-It” holder.
The order deadline for these square is January 6th, 2020 and delivery is scheduled for April (but could change).
Price: $130 – $170 ($440 combo)
Order Deadline: 1/6/20
I think this adjustable angle T-square is a great addition to their line-up, and it’s disappointing that they are making it a one-time tool.
Having a really large and accurate protractor would come in handy for laying out certain projects. I’ve used the protractor heads for combination squares before and find them sorely lacking. Trying to line up the proper angle is tedious at best and on many of the cheaper versions you’re lucky if the scale has been calibrated within 2°.
