Multipurpose Layout Tool

With just a few hours in the shop, you can transform a piece of T-track into one of your go-to tools.

It all starts with a length of T-track. Then you add shop-made accessories to turn the T-track into a practical, multi-use shop tool. The marking head is designed to hold a carpenter's pencil or a hobby knife blade. The trammel head allows you to lay out circles and arcs. And with a few simple marking guides, the tool becomes a story stick. This is one project that you can really put to use in your shop.
