Sure seems to be a handy tool Bob. I have heard of, but do not know a lot about, Peachtree. My question would be are they known for putting out accurate tools (items)? This 3D rule will only be as good as it is accurate. Can it be trusted that the rules have been manufactured within precise tolerances? An ananogy would be, I could buy a really good combination square, then, I could buy a Starrett square. I wonder where these will fall along the precision continuum?

I think they mostly retail like Rockler and Woodcraft. Online and one store, I think. I have bought things from them before. I’ll let you know how accurate it is. Looks a lot better than trying to keep tract of a handful of set up blocks. It has a magnet so it will stick to my saw base with the Wixey angle gauge instead of being lost like every thing else when you need it ;-))

Handy looking peice of kit Bob, you are becoming the guru for finding obscure WW accessories. Keep it up.
