Now until midnight October 11th, 2016, Woodpeckers is discounting each of their aluminum T-Squares by $15. Are these T-Square still expensive? Yes, but I talked to Stuart and he said that this is as low as the prices for these usually go, and they aren’t on sale very often. So if you’re looking to add one of these T-Squares to your collection, now is the time to do it.
Stuart’s Note: I looked at 6-1/2 years of Woodpeckers newsletters, and these prices are as low as their T-squares go. Sometime between April 2010 and May 2013, the regular price went up by $5, but these sale prices are as low as I’ve ever seen them. I own a 12″ and a 24″, and they’re fantastic.
The T-Squares are accurate to 0.001″, and this is guaranteed for life. Woodpeckers secures the aluminum blade and machined handle with 6 precision socket screws, creating a nice and tight joint.
Along the blade, there are holes every 1/16″, 1 mm in diameter to fit your pencil, marker, or other type of marking tool, and additional holes 1″ apart for marking shelf pins. The scales are laser engraved, and the edges are beveled 30° to make it easier to read measurements.
Here is WoodPeckers’ sale pricing, along with regular prices in parentheses:
- 12″ T-Square: $70 ($85)
- 24″ T-Square: $100 ($115)
- 32″ T-Square: $130 ($145)
- 600 mm T-Square: $100 ($115)
The T-Squares come in a wooden case (MDF) to safely store the tools when you aren’t using them. Woodpeckers will ship the T-Squares via UPS ground in the US for about $14.
Carbide Processors is also running the same deal right now, plus they are running a special code for free ground shipping on orders over $150. Code: SHIP150.

Stuart’s Note: Funny story – When I ordered my 24″ square back in 2010, it arrived without the ruler part being screwed into the side that rides along your workpiece! The screws were missing! Woodpeckers offered to send a replacement T-square, but I asked for just the screws. Woodpeckers’ customer service has been excellent over the years.
I bought my 2 Woodpeckers T-squares, and as with many of my Woodpeckers purchases, the price stung at first, but the functionality and performance has been worth it over the years. I’d replace them without hesitation. I started with the 24″ square, and sometime since then I picked up the 12″ one. I can’t find the order confirmation email, so it might have been at a Woodworking Show.
