Anyone own on of these? I was going to buy the Woodpecker 24” steel straight edge, but Rockler’s is 1/16” thicker, weighs more, costs less and I have a free shipping coupon. Total savings would be about $15.00.

If it is as accurate and of the same quality as the Woodpecker products, then it is a good deal. I have the woodpecker T square and various other woodpecker products and I have been extremely impressed with their accuracy.

What are you waiting for?

Sounds like you’ve answered your own question.

A picture accompanying a query is very helpful to the community.

My concern is the quality. If I knew it to be of good quality I would get it. It weights nearly 3 lbs., so it certainly has more steel than the Starrett, Pinnacle and other top brands, which might make a person think he/she is getting more for their money.

I wonder if the quality isn’t just as good as the top brand names which cost much more, and if they command a higher price only because of their reputations, or if the Rocker is of lesser quality.

Rockler has very high quality stuff. I don’t think you would go wrong by buying it. I have had no problems with anything bought through Rockler.
