Bevel gauge from a hack saw blade DIY
Boat builder’s small gauge.
Some of you probably saw my little brass bevel gauge, after finishing this, I was searching the web and stumbled over a sweet little DIY bevel gauge made from a old hack saw blade, so I had to make me one just for the fun of it.
It’s fast to make, simple and cost almost nothing.
This is how it will look.
So you start out with an old hack saw blade (or a new…)
Break it in half, or cut to desire length (you can also use two to get a long one).
The parts needed, blade, washers and a nail (brass or copper are better).
Saw of the part not needed.
Grind of tooth.
Grind the whole thing to make them look nice.
Hammer on the pin in circular motions, to create a second ‘head’.
Eating the big fish!
Or simply cleaning the pipe.
That should be it, feel free to ask.

Hope the blog be to inspiration, perhaps some pocket size bevel gauge…
