ELMER’S CORNER

From vol. 29 of Woodsmith.

Keep a spark plug gap gauge in your shop. They look like a pocket knife with various thicknesses of metal strips that fan out. You can get them at any automotive store.

The Metal strips can be used to push glue in to tight spots and under lifted veneer. The different gauges can also be used to check the setup of your power tools.
