Sliding Bevel Gauge
Brass blades paired with wood bodies make these bevel gauges as attractive as they are useful.
There’s something about shop-made tools that resonates with me. It may be the nod to a simpler time, where a craftsperson would often make a tool he or she needed. It could be the chance to break out of the production mold and customize your tool set. Or, it may be the opportunity to build a quality tool that future craftsmen will marvel at and wonder about the person who made it. Whatever it is that calls to you, these bevel gauges are the perfect project to scratch that itch.

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.
