Waterline marking jig

Filed under: Vol. 2 — admin @ 9:05 pm

Amati makes a waterline marking jig, I figured I could make one cheaper out of scrap wood and hardboard.

a couple of carriage bolts, washers, a wing nut, and a locking nut keep the movable slide in place:

A little brass screw in the side of the pencil holds it in place:

I took an old wooden ruler, ripped in it half on the table saw, thinned down the halves to 3/64″ in the thickness sander and then glued them in place; inches on one side, centimeters on the other.  Make sure to cut off an appropriate amount from the bottom of the ruler halves to account for the height of the blocks at the bottom of the jig.   🙂
