I have seen many people building cutting gauges and slicing gauges and I am wanting to do the same. I have located all the supplies I need except for the knurled brass thumb screws. Does anyone know a good source where I can get them? Please help if you can.

Thank-you,

Jeff

Jeff, did you ever find your thumb screws? I think I’ve seen some at Lee Valley, but that was in their discount bin in the store…

Jeff,
If you try to e-mail our fellow LJ Philly Edwards, you might get some in metric. He machined it himself and customized. I had been there in his shop.

Lowes, Home Depot and Ace Hardware carry them. Located in the Special nuts, bolts, all odd items drawers in a cabinet – supplied by some outsource Co.

Jeff, I also see this is an old post, but still, here is what I did: I bought some used up marking gauges and stole the parts off them for my new ones. Pretty inexpensive too. See “My Projects” for how they turned out.

Good Luck, Mike
