  • Depth Gauges

    I made these depth gauges from a plan in an old Wood Magazine. The woods are Mahogany, Tulip and Cocobolo. I cut the brass on the BT sandwiched between two pieces of plywood. I finished them with a couple of coats of Danish Oil, a couple of coats of shellac, [Zinsserís French Polish] and a couple of coats of Renaissance Wax.

            OOOOH I want one! Nicely done. There is just something about a wooden tool for a wood worker.

              Nice looking! Simple too! Gotta make one, or two . . .

              I can never have too many depth guages. There are so many uses for them. I am an unorganized person but always put my 4 depth guages in a drawer and forget where they are. I need about 10!

                    Beautiful work. Almost too beautiful to use.

                          Darn nice looking Depth Guages there, Steve!
                          Kinda makes me envious (just a little bit).

                            These mechanisms (the main part of digital calipers) are now on selling for $10. This one on eBay looks to the the same or very similar to the HF digital calipers.

                            Someone willing to make a inverted "U" measuring frame from a 4" square of plywood and attache to the "T" will have a zero-settable digital depth gage. The "T" arms are attached to the readout unit and the scale slides up and down from the unit.

                            Attach the U as I described, lower the scale to the table top (so its touching at all three points), and zero the readout. You can now read + values as height to .001" and minus values as depth of grooves and rabbtets. You can also read hole depth of larger holes or small holes if you make a narrow probe attachment.

                            I have one, just need to "get around to it".
