    Cool idea. Any particular reason why a tape measure didn't suffice?

    Hi Diyer, For me holding a round stock and putting a mark on it is difficult, with this tool I can move the thumb screw to the desired length, set it and then mark the tubing on the table easily. :O)
    Hi Hotz.

    You should show an example, how do you hold the round part (the one with the thumb screw) on the tube ?
    Cheers !
