How I do a Wheel Gauge, inspired by the mythical Veritas. With chestnut handle, brass shoulder, stainless steel rod. For the blade retouch a steel washer and for the nut to tighten a small experiment with a screw, a bit of Epoxy and a piece of copper tube.

Step 1: The Body
Preparing the brass shoulder preform as fit as possible. And the same with the wood for the body-handle with saw and raspe.
Step 2: The High Tech Lathe
After a lot of bad ideas, I found the way to use a drill like a lathe to round the brass and wood pieces.
Step 3: The Details
Sharpening the wheel. And one of my favorite work: the Nut. With a copper pipe, a screw and epoxi glue.
Step 4: The Result
Testing the gauge, I feel good with the result.
