Nice, Jeff. That’s a pretty similar style to the one I made. Don’t forget to add the tag gaugeswap so that it shows up with all the other ones.

Thanks Jeff. It’s a great little gauge I can carry around in my apron (or pocket until I get an apron) so I won’t have to look around the shop for a gauge anymore. It fits my hand great and should get lots of use
