Hi guys,
Thank you for the comments, I’m happy it can be usefull.
If you have a ball from a ball bearing (steel or nylon), you can use that instead of the nylon piece, simply dump it into the threaded insert when the ruler stop are made, and then put in the thumb screw after.
This will also make a more light pressure on the ruler.
Best thoughts,
Mads

Hi,
Yes I love to think… It’s a bad habbit, but when I think I empty my brain, and it becomes meditative to me – this is why I love woodworking so much.
Thank you for the comments, it makes it all doubble fun!
Best thoughts,
Mads
