I have some Woodpeckers “One Time” tools. One of them is a carpenter’s square that has never been out of the case. It is a thing of beauty, which is why I clicked “order”, never really putting much thought into what I would use it for. I also have one of the rulers and some corner squares as well as a marking tool. I use the ruler a fair bit as well as the marking tool. However, none of these items were inexpensive and I will admit they weren’t especially good value from a practical standpoint.

Having said that, Woodpeckers does have high quality tools that is specifically targeted to folks that want better quality and are willing to pay for it. There seem to be more and more places like that, with high end, precision tools at higher prices.

At the end of the day, expensive, fancy tools don’t make you a better woodworker.
