Just great, Niki. The absolute essence of self reliance. You should have been an American frontiersman.

Thank you so much for your kind words

When I made the marking triangles, I felt good that it works but now, I feel even better knowing that you like it…

Thank you

Thank you so much

If you like, you can make small improvement…I pushed the nut into a small knob so it’s easier and faster to turn the nut for distance adjustment as on the 2 pics below

Another improvement is…if you need stronger pressure, you can use a lever instead of the nut.
After you tight the inner (upper) lever, you can continue and press with the outer (lower) lever to get even higher pressure…

Nikki
I am an exschool teacher and retired busiessman. But a poor reader. I had to work very hard to get my master’s degree.

I am now a beginning woodworker.

Your explanations are the best I have ever seen. I can follow them very easily.

Anyone esle reading this, if you have children or grandchildren, please be sure they are excellent readers. Send them to special training if you have to. That is where my granddaughter is going at my expense.

It will make their life so much easier for them, because there are simply not enoght Niki’s in this world.
