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.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
