Rockler Woodworking and Hardware offers a new 3-in-1 bar gauge for squaring up drawers, cases and frames, transfering accurate project dimensions, and drawing arcs or circles of practically any size.
“Tape measures are ideal in many situations, but they won't work well for all marking and measuring jobs,” Rockler vice president for product marketing Steve Krohmer said in a statement. “If you're gluing up a cabinet, clamps can get in the way, making it impossible to get the accurate diagonal measurements you need to make sure the cabinet is square. The 3-in-1 Bar Gauge solves that problem – and several others, as well.”
The keys to the tool's versatility lie in its three sets of interchangeable tips and the fact that the two durable aluminum body sections are machined to work with easy-to-find 3/8" wooden dowels or metal rods of any length, allowing users to customize the gauge's extension to fit the project, according to the company.
It retails for $29.99.
