Woodpeckers OneTIME Tools

These guys are at it again.
This time they are offering an Odd Job tool. This tool is still in production an easily available for considerably less money. While their modern version may be more slightly accurate and offer some new accessories. This tool was not intended to replace all other layout and marking tools but rather a pocket sized convenience tool. Put it in your toolbox and use it in a pinch or out on a job site.

I don't have anything against this companies quality of tool (I have only seen and read about them, not handled) I just don't like to see people spend money unnecessarily.

6" version, $139

I have an old Stanley #1 odd jobs. My grandfather bought it in the 20s, its a pretty cool tool. I remember him telling me with a hammer, saw and his odd job he could build anything.

I bought one about 10 years ago when Rockler still sold them. I paid a little less than $139  Cheesy
Great little tool, just don't try to make it something it's not.

These "ONE TIME offers" for tools offers are WAYYYYY over the top.  For the money they want for them, they can keep these odd tools. Angry Smiley Smiley Smiley

Woodpeckers is like a Rolls Royce, if you have to ask what it costs you can't afford it.... I like to drool but I have yet to actually buy anything they offer
