A Radius Guage

Continuing the topic of nerdy things to fix nerdy things I present my Radius Gauge; This is a measuring tool for finding the inside and outside radius of curves. My inspiration was this picture from an old tooling handbook:


Here is how you use them:

And of course here is my PDF file.RadiusGuage.pdf (18.9 KB)

I did notice this posting from earlier: Radius Gauges
but mine includes a hole for a 5mm “Chicago Screw”. This is to keep the gauges together so that you lose them all at once. :upside_down_face:

Notice, these gauges are just approximations, no accuracy guarantee.

That’s cool! I could have used that a few times. I never knew they were a thing.

You’ll note the Gift of Good Measure has this built-in. Each rounded corner is a different radius, and marked as such.
