    Will do.
    I like it for its KISS design, it will work, and accurately, and it is dead simple in construction and operation, won't take very long to construct nor cost an arm and a leg to do so.
    All the qualities an old ranch kid like me likes in a project! Useful, easy to build , accurate and cheap!

    Thanks again.

    Excellent design mklotz! It's amazing how such a simple tool can have several versions that really work! Liked it! I use something similar as an edge finder, that I named "Pac Man Edge Finder"!
