I just love this tool so I thought i'd give it a post

3 uses for the Ken Timm's gauge.
1- Center finder (I only realised this today)
2- Nut string spacer.
3- Bridge string spacer.

Hey! Beau..I was enjoying a few quiet days with my feet up, after completing a large batch of ukes..and now! since you posted this, i'm getting bombarded with E-mails and PM's all asking for gauges :(...I was going to start making some in November but now it looks like I'll have to start sooner.

hahaha- I posted on facebook and almost 5000 people see that!

Also, there might be a market for a more robust 3 point quick center finder- something you leave on the bench so we dont damage our nice nut gauge which i keep locked away!)

Just a thought- id buy one, even though i have a 4 and 6 pointer already.

I'd quit building if I couldn't use my Timms string spacing gauges. No more math or burning up brain cells! :)

Robust 3 pointer!!!! :)- You will sell at least two !

Let's put Mrs Timms in that Bentley she has always wanted!!

That's small thinking. :) Perhaps Mrs. Timms would enjoy a chateau in the south of France. I have two of the quads and would treasure a triple!

I ‘need’ a triple.

Like Beau, my quad is safely tucked away swaddled in it’s protective coverings!

your future beckons.....

That center finder tip is pure gold Beau. I would buy a three pointer just for that.
