make a tram gauge in 6 minutes for $6
 
I actually made this WHILE watching my baby. Took no longer than 6 minutes. I can always match it up to a metric tape measure if I need to set measurements. I can live with that if I don't have to pay $300.

On this one I used a 5' piece of 3/4" conduit. I should have used 7' and will probably get a 7' piece later.

this is all you need. Pretty self explanitory.

the hole needs 1/4 " 20 threads.

no need to buy 2.

two tacks are fine.

works great! At a later time I will get the 7' piece of conduit and make longer AND shorter studs

the whole time I was thinking about what kind of rod I'd use and shave sharp but I was looking at the 6" nails and told myself, "you know, that would save a little time."

Cool tool! I usually make mine out of wood. Cheap like borscht and they work.
