Every woodworker should have one of these. No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

This is used nearly every time my pencil is used. It’s just great. Perfect layouts are so much easier in every way now. I don’t really have much else to say. The picture is pretty self explanitory.
Oh, I use the 6 inch because I usually make smaller things. Even if you make large projects most of the layout is at the end of the board for joinery and what not so the 6 inch should be fine for that too.
Get one. I can’t imagine you’ll wish you hadn’t.

I have the 12” model. It’s my go-to measuring device in my shop.

Been using the 12 incher for years, so long in fact that I could read the 64ths easily when I bought it. Not so much these days without bifocals.

I still use a 12˝ Starett combo often; as the Incra is floppy, but between the two things are covered pretty well.

These are great rules….the 3” is also very handy : )

I’m convinced. I’ve been putting off buying these but I will.

The are excellent. You can’t go wrong with anything made by Incra. Their tools are as much addictive as they are accurate. I bought numerous Incra products from www.incrementaltools.com and from www.woodpeck.com
I just received my Incra Incra LS positioner super system and Incra router table today and will spend time setting it up in the next couple of days. Their products are not cheap…but top quality never is cheap but I figure I will not have to replace these products.

I bought the 18” model thinking that too long still works where too short might not. It’s a great tool and I’ll probably buy the 6” model (maybe the 12” too) just for the convenience!

Have your say...
