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.

Great Gadget
Reviewed By:   (River Forest, IL) 
Frequently at a loss for solutions to small project problems. This tool lets me think out loud with something in my hands. No longer to fret what do I need or how to attack the issue. Solutions are best thought out with the help of the hands.

Very Helpful

These come in handy for odd jobs, hence the name. The base is solid, but the rulers feel more delicate and may not stand up to heavy use.

A Craftsman's Christmas Gift
Reviewed By:   (Kirbyville, Texas) 
I purchased Garrett Wade's Standard Odd Job for a craftsman neighbor. He is proud of his knowledge and skills, and while he can do the McGiver thing better than McGiver his own tools are the best. The Standard Odd Job is an elegant little multi-purpose measure and square made of wood, steel, and brass. In a world cluttered with disposable, mass-produced tools, the Standard Odd Job is a perfect example of the quality workmanship that makes Garrett Wade the go-to supplier for those who love quality.

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.
