Nothing special here. Just another ShopNotes measuring gauge. I do need a different ruler for it though. The increments on the current one are not as readable as the one in the plans. Also the ruler shown in the plans shows a vertical read ruler. Any ideas as to where I can get one of those? Thanks for looking.

P.S. Download the Sketchup model from the Sketchup 3D Warehouse. Simply do a search for Setup Gauge.

Nifty Idea. Works as well as one you would buy.

Excellent idea.
I have been trying to figure out how to do one of these.

Really nice.
I made a different version for the same purpose.
Best thoughts,

I’ve been thinking of making one of these. Isn’t the ruler in your diagram upside down?
