Woodpeckers OneTime Tool
No. 94 Dual Beam Scribe

Woodpeckers newest OneTIME Tool, the No. 94 Dual Beam Scribe, is a re-creation of the Stanley #94. The #94 was the second-generation of the Stanley Butt Gauge, patented more than one hundred years ago. Today few of us need to tackle hand-mortising passageway doors, but this clever tool comes in handy anytime you need to mark two different dimensions over and over again.
