I made 4 gauges to start with and was sure I could do better, so I kept at it and made
some more, with different designs and a lot of thinking.
I checked the web and with fellow LJers and appreciate all the helpful advice.
The 2 best ones went to Mos with a ball peen hammer that was made during
the first mallet swap.
I tried different metals for the blade, such as a drill bit, allen wrench, and a lathe
turning tool. The one I like the most was from a Japanese marking knife and the picture
is above with a 5/16” hole in it for the attaching bolt.
My home made saw was used to notch the wood for the blade and it worked
surprisingly well. Yeah buddy.
Thanks for being the MC Brandon, you did well Sir.
Thanks for the pictures Mos!
