Kerfmafe – handydandy
Ok, I think it’s time to say: ‘That’s it!’.
Yes, I could not resist, I had to think some more on this… And SPalm wrote the other day on a post ‘handy dandy’, this kept coming back in my mind, since the first I made was dandy, but not really handy…
So this one are more pocket size (don’t know if that’s a good thing), and I decided to accept that it had a moving part sticking out (to make it smaller), and that the spur was now on the moving part (so the measure gap would not become to small), even this was some of the reasons I made the first one… So where are your logic Mad-F?
Enough about that, it’s really a nice little tool, and I decided to call it after SPalm ‘handydandy’, and me Kerfmafe
[At the last picture, you can see there is a replica of the first one I made in the background… This one are going to go by airmail to my brother in South Africa so he have time to make a living for his sweet little family, and were the reason why I went back to the workshop, to make kerfmakers instead of finishing those dovetails, the pictures are using as background…]

Hope it can be to some inspiration,
