Durable aluminium body and large knurled knobs for easy adjustment. Quickly and simply shows if frames, drawers or cases are square, or whether part will fit. Use 10mm (3/8") dowel stock (not supplied) to obtain required lengths for project work pieces. Comes with sets of beam compass tips, flat tips and angled wedge tips for scribing circles, transferring dimensions and checking diagonals.
Sometimes the oldest, most basic tools can turn out to be the most efficient ones. Our 3-in-1 Bar Gauge, a refinement of a time-honoured cabinetmaker's tool, is certainly one of them. It doesn't quibble over metric or imperial measurements, or even any measurements at all. It simply tells you if your frame, drawer or case is square, or whether the part will fit. It includes three sets of interchangeable tips that let you check diagonals for square, transfer measurements and even scribe circles. All this at a fraction of the price of similar bar gauges on the market. Use commonly available 3/8'' dowel stock (supplied by the user) to obtain whatever length you need for your most typical projects.
