Project Information

Just a sliding block I made to hold 2 framing squares together to act as a large caliper .
I made this from 7/16" oak flooring scrap and some jatoba offcuts .
To lock the squares together I use a simple quick clamp which provides a good lock and lets me move the caliper without loosing my measurement and I can easily read the numbers .

Thanks
KIEFER

There are more ideas in my head but it takes time for that gray stuff to ferment.

The time for glasses is here and they are a pain but don't worry your time will come when you appreciate big numbers .

Large caliber is what I need some days its getting getting harder and harder to see .
I have done the square dancing but you should try the two step it's lots of fun !
Wonder what tool that will be ? LOL
Stay well and keep posting your good and interesting projects !
