    A Few Starter Tools

    As a relative newbie to the hobby I thought it would be a good exercise to make a few useful starter items. This way I would get intimately engaged with the tools. So here is: a scriber and finger plate (based on the Clickspring designs), and a tap follower (courtesy of MrPete222)

    Also a surface gauge made up as I went along based on photos

    I wonder what Chris you have been watching? You make him proud with a very nice tool to put in your box and be proud to say you made it. Very nice work and I be looking for future builds.
    Thank you for sharing
