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.

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…

This company has every kind of anything you could ever want. The first site is their homepage. The second is for what you are looking for…oops, I didn’t notice this was first posted 258 days ago.

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
