Homemade Selectric Tools (gauges)

Looking for Selectric tools is like hunting for that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Every once in a while the Internet turns up a nugget though, and this small excerpt from a 1982 issue of Ipso Facto magazine came to the fore, and it has some simple, but useful homemade gauges.

These basically help fill the gap when you do not have access to a Hooverometer.


  1. Hi Brian. Have you actually made and used these tools? Want to know how they worked.......

    1. Bruce-
      No, not yet. I just found those plans today and posted them.
      I hope to, and will report back.

  2. Looking forward to seeing the result.
