    Smallest is 1" but 1.0625" to 1.125" seems to be the norm. I'm happy with the SM ruler to draw out my nuts on my single course strings but I could see a lot of value in your tool for laying out paired courses on mandolins.

    ....when fully closed the gauge points shoud be at .025" pitch..so it will handle a 1" neck ..when fully open it's around 4 1/2" big enough for a Double Bass bridge.

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    I am very fortunate to have one of these and fully endorse it. It is a genius tool and i hope you charge at least $60 for one because the time saving and accuracy of these things cannot be matched!

    Mince meat is a misnomer - it is in fact a sweet pie with currents, raisins, suet and all sorts of other stuff but no meat. Ahhh the Englsih language
