Here are a couple of cool tools made by a builder in the U.K. I've had the nut spacer for awhile and he just made me the divider. I suppose these must exist in the machine tool world, but I've never seen anything quite like them. Really useful for laying out nuts and bridges, as well as finding a center without having to reach for a ruler and then find my glasses to read it!

Those tools have always intrigued me. Do you know what the tolerances are between the pints when you open them up a bit? I have seen one that had 7 points.

Ed, I do not know exactly what the tolerances are. At least as good as my eye and a ruler, and less mistakes. I was checking the marks with a ruler, but I'm learning to do less of that.
