Precision Marking Gauges

Precision Marking Gauges

For the marking gauges, Small Parts, Inc. has the 1/8"-thick aluminum sheet (SMA-125-B) you’ll need. They also carry the 3/8"- dia. aluminum rod (ZRA-06-12) and the 1/2"-dia. rod (ZRA-08-12).

McMaster-Carr carries similar material along with the wax (1009K22) used to coat the band saw blade before cutting the aluminum.

The Woodsmith Store has buffing wheels (220770) and the polishing compounds (362247). Finally, most auto parts stores have products for cleaning and protecting aluminum.
