A couple of years ago we covered Woodpeckers’ Story Stick: a straight aluminum track that allowed you to place several markers with the turn of a thumbscrew. Woodpeckers has just announced a new-and-improved version of their Story Stick: the Story Stick Pro.
At $30 for the 24″ version and $55 for the 48″ version, the Story Stick Pro seems a little pricey, but it’s an interesting idea nonetheless. The “stick” features a slot where several attachments can be tightened into place with thumbscrews anywhere along the slot. To aid in placement, they put both standard and center scales on the top.
Rather than single-sided tabs like the original Story Stick, the tabs extend to both sides so you can use whichever edge is more convenient. This would come in handy for things like like marking hinges on both sides of a cabinet without reconfiguring the Story Stick. Also new with this version: You can get caliper arms for transferring the exact length from one piece to another.
Woodpeckers says the Story Stick Pro will ship in February and be available in both imperial and metric versions. All Story Stick Pros will include four tabs and one stop. The option to buy four extra tabs or set of caliper arms will run you another $18.
