Mike & Mads cutting gauge manual (blog)
A gift to a wonderful friend.
This is the third part, so for you who step in here, please go back to the beginning:
I don’t know if it is really needed, but thought it was fine?
The gauge with the round side of the gauge head facing a curved or circular shape, in this way it can follow any shape.
The cutting gauge with the flat side of the gauge head against a straight side, in this way you have more stability.
Now the other end of the gauge are turned over, and a pencil are used in the hole for drawing none permanent lines.
And here with the little awl I made for it.
In use you will use the other hand to hold the little awl down (I use mine for the camera).
The reason I made a small awl is that it is easier to control with the other hand.
The same but in a full view.
So now Mike there are no excuse, as I wrote you it’s a tool so the more you use it, the more happy I will be…
And after a how the little box was done: Soon.
Hope this blog can be to some inspiration, for me it is was so much a pleasure to make these Mike & Mads cutting gauges,
