Hi Fellow Lumber Jocks,
I was perusing a WW magazine and I came upon something similar to what I have made here. I call it a Magnascribe! It has a magnet from an old 5 1/4” hard drive I salvaged from one of my dumpster dives! The body is made from 1/2” birch plywood left over from my son’s magic table project and a piece of oak, (the pencil holder) from an entertainment center someone threw away. The hardware is salvaged from other stuff over the years. finished with mineral oil.
It works great with my steel framing squares! I found the plans for making the squares from another WW magazine (I don’t remember which one unfortunately) I can even use it on my combo square.
Thanks for looking,
