A very handy gauge to fit in my pocket that I’ve always wanted to make. Mafe’s recent bevel gauge got me inspired. Tonight was the night and I got it done. Makes a wonderful addition to the handmade tool collection.

Nice work Clarence. It’s always handy to have a smaller bevel gauge handy. I’m sure you will get a lot of use out of t.

Neat job on both. Maybe these shop made tools will put the squeeze on the WW supply houses. lol

Looks like a nice little tool. Mine are all too big and clumsy. Maybe i had better join the club ;-))

Hi my dear Clung,
What a wonderful little bevel gauge you have made, it suits the marking gauge, beautiful!
It will be a little tool to play with in the pocket, I’m sure it will be like a little jewel to you, a friend.
I love the plain string you put in it, it makes it more calm.
(Now I feel inspired also, but I have a few tool projects up the sleve now to be postet, so I’ll try and keep you all busy).
Thank you for the kind words (also to the others),
Best thoughts from my heart,
