This is a interesting gauge. I really enjoy seeing shop made tools. It is undoubtedly quicker to simply buy something to suit this need but it is hard to put a price on the satisfaction that comes from building one. I may have to give one of these a try. I have a couple of plexiglass offcuts that I had to keep which would work for something like this.

I too would like to see a copy of the plans. You might also consider posting it on a blog with more detailed photos, or just add more photos to your project.
Thanks for sharing.
