Topic tags/keywords: question

On American Woodshop Episode 1910 Outdoor Accents, Scott Phillips uses a black metal T-Square.
The blade of the square has a slot cut down the middle in which the head adjust and locks.

Can anyone identify this ruler?

I’ve searched in vain for this tool.

Thank you!

Just watched the video you referenced. I see the t-square you are talking about, but it does not look adjustable to me. It resembles the woodpecker square that PurpLev posted, only in black. Perhaps it was an earlier model

I believe Woodcraft got Woodpeckers to run them some of their tools with a black anodize rather than a red one. They sold them under the “Pinnacle” brand. It’s the same tool, different color.

The Woodpecker T square is not adjustable.

That black is way nicer looking than that ugly red woodpecker stuff.

The red and the black square look the same, both outsourced from the same company I guess.

Let’s be clear. Woodpecker’s makes them, it its own factory, in Ohio. Woodcraft outsourced to Woodpecker’s.
Woodpecker makes all their own tools in that factory. They sell stuff they get from others, but the Woodpecker brand tools are made by Woodpecker’s in Ohio.

Thank you all for your responses to my question.

After identifying the T-Square in question, I decided that this tool was not what I was looking for.

I decided that the Woodpeckers 24inch Woodworking Rule together with the Pinnacle 2” Rule Stop will give me the type of ruler I want.
