You and I are aligned on that one for sure! I would say it would have to be both -- a foolish Festool fanatic.

Hi,

I think thicker might be OK , 3/8" would stand a bit better especially if you did a 12". But I don't usually have any trouble standing the 1/4" thinkness on edge.

Thinner?, nope won't stand up well enough, and unless it was real thin it would not help with marking anyway.

I guess the 1/4" seems just right

Funny about a half hour ago I removed the foot from a 12" Carpenters to use it as a Precision Triangle. Decided to leave it that way since I have a gold one and a red one. Yes, it would not be handy enough to do on any regular basis.

Well, maybe that's my message from the netherworld to buy another and have one of each.
