Made from 1888 to the early 1930's, and rediscovered by Garrett Wade, the Odd-Job will provoke admiring glances. It's an inside mitre and try square, a depth gauge, a scribing tool for arcs and circles, a T-square, a depth marking scribe (excellent for marking out mortises), a plumb level, and a rule. Made of solid brass and steel, and carefully machined on all sides. Hardwood Rules are brass-bound and graduated in inches and metric units.

The Standard Odd Job has been available from Garrett Wade for about 20 years. Now we have a new larger size - with more impressive heft and greater utility. The Standard Odd Job is 4" long and comes with a 6" Rule, inches on one side and metric on the other. A 12" Rule is available in addition. The Large Odd Job is 5-3/4" long - 43% longer and comes with the 12" Rule, with an 18" Rule available in addition. All Maple/Brass Rules are excellent woodworking tools used alone.

Still on the (Odd) Job
Reviewed By:   (Polson, MT) 
On the job since 1870's I believe. Marking, measuring and cutting are still necessary. No need to reinvent the wheel. Bought this for my brother his grew little feet.

Great Little Tool
Reviewed By:   (Corvallis, Oregon) 
A great, handy little tool for so many things, from table saw blade heights to scribing circles. Makes hard jobs easy. Lives up to the catalog writeup in all respects.

A Little Doer
Reviewed By:   (Blaxland, NSW) 
I have used the regular "Odd Job for about ten years and have found it to be brilliant. It really is the tool I reach for from my top drawer the most. I am seriously considering the Large Odd Job now that I know it is available. An absolute " must have" tool for any woodworker/ handyman.

I wish I hadn't waited so long to order the odd-job, I’ve used it everyday, and couldn't be happier!
