Here’s the bevel gauge I made a few years ago.

Its walnut and brass.

Its small but it gets the job done, it was a bugger making the wing nut though.

I seen yours Gary and thought it was cool>

Yes I made the wing nut to.

That is one small gauge but, knowing your work as I do, it will work well.

Was there a reason to make it so small?

Scott, I was making doll houses at the time,,,,,,,NOT! Fun, fun, fun, it was just for fun. I have others to. A plane, square, spoke shave(not finished) marking gauge. I just wanted to see how small I could make them and have them still work. I had plans to make a miniature shop, still do just not enough time.

OK, that’s just cool. I doubt it serves any practical purposes whatsoever, but who cares? It’s just cool :D
