I don't mean to redirect this thread, but I just noticed several Festool items I've never seen before.


And a 576984

I have used both, the pica from LV ($17 Cdn) and the other from Amazon or Home Depot:

I use the pica a lot for marking cabinet triangles. The color leads are helpful when working with lighter or darker wood. The built-in sharpener is a great design.

The contour gauge is indispensable when you need to make a mirror caul.

The Picas are great.  I got a couple with color assortments for the guys I worked with as they had trouble marking back especially and other colored tiles when marking out for heavy glass shower enclosures.

The Pica-Dry is a great pencil for carpentry and for marking rough lumber. The lighter colors are especially useful for dark lumber such as walnut. Regularly $14.99 at Woodcraft, it's on sale this month for $9.99.

What's the difference between those two Picas? They look a bit different.

The Pica's are great, especially with the hard lead, rather than the soft one they come with.

Huh, soft lead they come with?? Maybe mine came with a different one? I do have the plain Pica marked ones. If you buy them in a set with the black folder you get a different color endcap with it so you can differentiate between two holstered markers.

The Big has a thicker lead.

Pica recently redesigned the normal one btw.
