Default An interesting angle gauge

Among my emails today was this rather interesting chisel angle gauge.

I'm missing how it works.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Me too. It seems as if any place you set it on the "GAGE", that it is still the angle that it started as.
I mean, that any place on the gage is the same as the angle of the blade.

I think I should have stayed out of this.
Where is Stick?

Pretty sure it's for finding the angle by placing the tool in the gauge and then moving the lever till it hits the bevel and reading that angle as printed or between.......that's placing it on the bottom level piece of wood and moving the lever until it matches the angle of the bevel. But I could be wrong.......

I agree with you Steve, I would thionk that the bevel is placed on the black pad, held with the thumb (for right handed people) and the lever moved 'till the body of the chisel is parallel with one of the lines.

The chisel is placed on the bottom ledge of the gage with the back down...it is moved forward until the lever angle matches the bevel.

Good eyesight is required...

I use a regular ole angle finder to do the same thing but this would be easy to make and calibrate...

Thanks for sharing...
