A well-tuned chisel or hand plane is a joy to use. Getting the cutting edge bevel angle dialed in allows the tool to work effectively with as little effort as possible. And there are times when increasing the bevel angle or micro-bevel angle a couple degrees will tame especially hard or figured woods. But if you can’t accurately measure your bevels, altering them is pure guesswork.

Accurately measuring both the primary and micro-bevel on chisels and plane irons takes only seconds. Simply place the back of the blade on the Angle Gauge’s base then slide it toward the arm until the arm and bevel match. Read the scale and you're done. To measure a micro-bevel, move the blade a bit further until the arm aligns with it and take another reading on the scale.

The laser-etched degree scale ranges from 15° to 45°, the bevel angle range most all chisels, plane irons and some turning tools are effectively set within. Paring chisels use angles as low as 20°, bench and butt chisels generally use 25° as do block plane irons. The Angle Gauge can just as easily measure steep angles used with low-angle smoothing planes and scraper planes. You can also use it to measure bevels on turning tools like parting tools, flat-bladed skews and beading tools.

Woodpeckers Angle Gauge is precisely machined from aircraft-grade aluminum on state-of-the-art CNC machines. Its anodized for protection and the angle scale is laser-engraved in 1° intervals. All Woodpecker tools are machined in their shop just outside Cleveland, Ohio.
