    Bar Gauge (checking diagonals)

    Good day

    I know that there are a few commercial versions but they are usually with points that always get into the glue squeeze-out at the corners.

    There is another version that is used with measuring tape but, it's not so convenient with all the clamps around.

    So, this is my version with dowels that keeps the bars out of the glue squeeze-out.

    Regards

    Another very simple, but brilliant solution. Thanks for posting it, Niki.

    Boy Niki, those are on my list for sure, what a great, simple and elegant solution

    Boy, we need a separate forum just for all of your good tips and tricks!
