Just a sliding block I made to hold 2 framing squares together to act as a large caliper .
I made this from 7/16” oak flooring scrap and some jatoba offcuts .
To lock the squares together I use a simple quick clamp which provides a good lock and lets me move the caliper without loosing my measurement and I can easily read the numbers .

Thanks KIEFER
