Adjustable Pot
Gauge - G001

 

This adjustable pot gauge is 12.5" high and the pointers are 12" long.  One side is in inches and other side is in centimeters. It is made of bamboo.  The two pointers can be pre-set to produce accurate height and width of the pot to be made. It can be clamped onto the wheel or tray at a convenient place just out of range of moving hands.
It can also be used to draw straight lines of constant height for any pots or hand build forms.
