All-Purpose Layout Tool

All-Purpose Layout Tool

Finding the materials to build the all-purpose layout tool on page 34 of ShopNotes No. 90 should be pretty easy. You may be able to pick up all of the material you need at a local hardware store.

The only problem I ran into was finding the brass strips and the knurled thumb nuts. If you can’t find them locally, McMaster-Carr can help you out.

For the brass strip, ask for part number 8859K91. And the knurled nuts are part number 92741A160. The company’s contact information can be found below.

Instead of using knurled thumb nuts, you could switch to brass wing nuts, which are a common item in most hardware stores.
