First Look

The folks at UMM-USA continue to add new tools for a variety of tasks that make the modeler's life easier. In this release, we have the 3D Center Locating Tool Jig which is essentially a three-dimensional protractor set for 45 degrees. Simply place a square or round object in the V and draw a line through the center of the object. Rotate the object 90 degrees and draw another line. Where the lines intersect is the center point. If you've got a resin wheel that is missing the axle hole, this handy tool will let you locate the point where you'll use a pin vice or drill bit to open up the axle hole. This tool is useful in a variety of other cases where you need to find a center point in a smaller circular or square object.

Stop by their website or their booth at the next hobby show and see this and other innovative tools that you can use on your workbench!
