Height-, length gauge (DIY)
Tablesaw setting, chisel honing guide and more…
A free tape measure from your local hardware store, some scrap wood, a bolt and a insert – is all you need.
Make a base of plywood in a desired lenght, make it wide enough to be able to hold a measure and a track.
Route a spur for the tape measure, and a track for the stop.
The stop are made from a scrap piece of wood, make a little extra block that fits the track to keep it 90 to the base when you slide it up and down, glue these together and make a hole thrugh.
Glue the tape measure in the spur, and be sure to adjust it to zero in the bottom, cut it to fit.
Now you can give it some varnish, and then put it together.
Perhaps my ruler stop also be at intrest…
Good luck with it!
