    Thanks for adding this information. I'm sure it will be useful in helping others to make their own on a 3D printer. It looks great in the photo. My only reservation is with you using a screw at the fulcrum point. The original design requires a close fitting pin. The fit with a screw may allow for movement at this point, altering the accuracy. Thanks dustee1000

    This is an error in the instruction. I will amend today. The round bar is clamped in a 3 jaw lathe chuck, and clamped into the milling machine table, with the end of the bar pointing up and the profile is machined into the end of the bar. It is then parted off on the lathe. I hope this clears up this problem for you. dustee1000

    Thank you very much, please vote! Instead of million you may have access to a laser cutter or 3-D printer so you could manufacture that way. Or you may even have a local makerspace that may be willing to help you. If you read below someone has infant given it a shot at 3-D printing and theirs looks great so far Dustee 1000

    Thanks for the tips. Everyone of them is worth adding to the AnglEase. I'm sure the would be room for the spring within the slot at the pivot end. I didn't consider engraving a zero position onto it, but it would be a definite indication to show it will be parallel in the closed state. I did consider milling a pocket to store the setting piece so it wouldn't get lost. I'll leave that to the individual if they want to do that. dustee1000

    Another member has suggested to put in a spring to keep on the tension the parts. This seems a good improvement, and will solve the problem you have raised. dustee1000

    Gis DonThe Diameter is 10mm. On the drawing it states 5mm radius. It would be great to see your finished AnglEase. dustee1000

    Thanks for clarifying this.dustee1000

    That looks great Don. I'm please that someone has attempted to 3D print this tool. Thanks for showing your work. I'll look forward to seeing the finished tool. dustee1000

    I can be used to set components up at angles a against an angle plate, and then removed whilst cutting. It can also be used to set angles in the compound slide on a lathe with a DTI.

    Thank-you.If you make one yourself, I would love to see photos of it. dustee1000
