In the meantime, I've been trying to do some modeling as I can. And one of the things that I needed help with was a way keep a part nice, square & perpendicular. A square would keep it, well, "square" but - as you can see in the photo below - the end of the square dips so it can't help keep anything perpendicular.
. . . which I made this from scraps of styrene. It's as easy as 1-2-3:
- Measure the depth/thickness of the thick leg of the square off of the thin leg;
- Find a thickness of styrene to match - or laminate a couple pieces together to get the right thickness;
- Attach some pieces to each end, far apart enough to accommodate the thin leg of the square.
Now, your square is not only square, but the thick leg can be used to help hold something perfectly perpendicular now too!
