TS-2 and DSS-6

Postby wsolma@yahoo.com » Sat Mar 30, 2013 3:54 pm

All,

I'm a woodworking newbie but have a passion for learning and as well as a huge appreciation for well designed, high quality tools. Pardon the ignorance, when would you use the DSS-6 versus the TS-2?

Thanks in advance!

Hello Marc and welcome,

The DSS-6 will have more functionality than the TS-2 with the exception that the TS-2 is larger scale for doing larger layouts. The DSS-6 because of the sliding and graduated blade, allows you do use it to measure depths, use it to set paring guides a predetermined distance from an edge, check for square in a tight area, allow you to set a distance and hold a pencil against the blade and move it down the board leaving a line where you want it and any other function that a movable blade would be useful for. If you were going to get just one, I would suggest the DSS-6, but what fun is that? The more tools the better!

I hope my explanation was helpful,
Rutager

Rutager, thanks for the explanation. It was helpful! I agree, more tools, more fun! I will likely get both in due time. In the mean time, The HP-10 will be my first BCTW tool!

Thanks again,
