Woodpeckers Story Stick Pro is the new and improved version of
Woodpeckers original Story Stick. Along with many new easy to use
features, it's also now available in two lengths, 24” (600mm) and 48”
(1200mm). The Story Stick Pro has both a standard and center scale on
the top surface making it easier to read. It also now features clear
double tabs. The double tabs extend out from both edges of the track
thus creating a mirror image of your setup. Now you can set the Story
Stick up once and use it from both edges of the board or both sides of a
cabinet without having to reconfigure the tabs.
The mirroring feature makes marking a cabinet for hinges,
hardware or drawer slides a cinch. Simply set the tabs to your desired
dimensions, snug the knobs and you're set to go. Use opposite sides of
the tabs to mark opposite sides of the cabinet. This approach guarantees
that both sides will be the same.
The Story Stick Pro supports a number of new accessories the first of which are caliper arms.
Caliper arms allow you to quickly create a physical
“stick” to use as a cut-to reference. The arms are offset to the inside
from one direction and the outside from the other. The inside offset is
used for the inside measurements and the outside offset for outside
Say you want to put a perfectly fitting shelf between two
cabinet sides. Simply adjust the arms out until they contact the sides,
lock them in place and use that physical example to set your saw fence
that distance from the blade.
The same approach can be used for cutting a lid to the exact size of a box.
It's not uncommon to use an existing part to cut more of
the same size. That's exactly what the Story Stick Pro with Caliper Arms
does for you only faster and more accurately.
The new Story Stick Pro is available in either imperial
or metric version and includes (4) tabs and (1) stop. Caliper arms sold
separately. Made in U.S.A.
