The Click Rule, Great for Woodworkers, and the Visually Impaired

Recommended Posts

Our good friend and veteran Mark Wilson sent in an image of a wonderful shop aid that he received from the fine folks at Hines VA Center For the Blind gave him, it's a click rule. And it is a wonderful measuring device that is used widely in the shops of the visually impaired, the measuring uses are endless with thsi hand little device and the construction, fit and finish appear to be top quality.

See image below

ning-image-5350-23.jpegIf you look at it, it is a very robust and strong story stick. Seems like it would make a great addition to anyone shop whether you are visually impaired or not.

Here is a quote from Mark Wilson below.
"I thought maybe you and the guys might be interested in the click rule. The Hines Blind Center has given me them to help me measure. They are also handy to set router bit height and move the fence on the router table quickly in increments of 1/16" or more.
Also good on table saw setting fence but always remember if you measure from outside of blade add a 1/8" for kerf. Here's a website were they sell it but you maybe able to find it else where." Mark Wilson

Thank you Mark!!!! Great heads up man!

Also please don't forget folks, we are still in the middle of our Mark Wilson Project, Mark is our latest project where we are trying to out fit his shop with everything he needs to work wood, and become financially independent with his woodworking, click on the big red and white and blue banner at the top of our site that says "Click Here To See How You Can Help a Veteran Woodworker".
Have a wonderful week ahead all!

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
