Haven’t had much time lately for my marking gauge: our neighbor pulled out of her garage on her SUV without … opening the garage door. Fixing the door has taken more than I thought it would.
Epoxied brass wear strip, the fence and put in the threaded insert. Instead of the suggested 3/8” hole for the insert I had to make it a bit wider than 7/16”—the rosewood’s really hard. Found a brass bolt to be sacrificed for two shoes.
The knurled screws from Rockler are of really poor quality: they are covered with burrs, dents and scratches, loose in the insert and the color is off. The color is bright yellow instead of pale yellow with a reddish tint. Is this 360 brass? Considering the price, next time, I will get my knurled screws somewhere else…
