A Better Layout Tool No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I posted a longer review of this tool on website, but in short the Brumley Tools’ Trim Gauge has become my go to tool for measuring and laying out. It’s incredibly easy to use, more compact than a combination square, and as I typically need to do multiple layouts, it’s nice that you get three in a kit: 2 4”, 1 8”. I won’t lie and say that they are inexpensive but of late my Trim Gauges are one of favorite go to tools in the shop.

I’ve had the little trim gauge for quite some time and really like it.

I’ve used the same gauge for 4 years. I find it invaluable and agree that it’s a go to tool. Definately worth the price.

I keep them in the pocket of my work bib, they get used a lot.
