The complete gauge, A, is assembled for what is often referred to as “grasshopper gauging.” Normally a pencil or ballpoint pen is fixed in the stem, although a point end can be used. The auxiliary fence is secured with roundhead screws through a suitable pair of holes. B shows the gauge in use. A box with an overhanging top tacked on is being gauged to give a line on which nails or screws are to be driven. A second, curved, auxiliary fence enables the gauge to work around a curve. Without either fence the gauge becomes a deep gauge. Using a pencil or ballpoint pen, gauging can be carried out over a step or lipping, C, or down into a cavity. — from “The Solution at Hand” by Robert Wearing #The_Solution_at_HandOur Crucible curves were reviewed in this month in Threads magazine (@threadsmagazine.
