Brass bevel gauge
Just thought; ‘can I do that’!
Another self challenge, I saw somewhere on the internet a little pocket size brass bevel gauge, and was completely in love!
So I designed my own, and the rest was like Nike says ‘just do it’!
1. Here we are! And I’m happy about the result.
2. Some brass rod, inspiration, and a mousetrap that can hunt the mouse….
3. Silver solder, I still think this is difficult.
4. Parts ready.
6. Rounding the end.
This might look difficult, but trust me again on this, it was not as difficult as it looks, brass are just like hard wood to work in, but it did put my patience on the test (since I can only work little at the time)..
This little set will sure be a pleasure to work with!
My brass hammer.
Hope it can be to some inspiration, perhaps some little bevel gauges,
