English Hand Tools with Jim Hendricks

  Through Thick and Thin  

Old instruments are just gorgeous in my eyes and when they are functional, all the better.




This old thickness gauge is one such example. Unmarked, continental, graduated in millimeters, not only does it work, it is really accurate.

No maker's mark at all. I love the simple integral spring!

This is a 4mm thick parallel iron.

A digital gauge says 3.95mm...

... and so does this gauge!
