    Jig/guide/gauge for making two exactly parallel lines?

    I remember seeing (in one of my many, MANY woodworking books/magazines) a tool that used a scissor-type mechanism to make lines that were precisely parallel. Now I can't find it. Neither can Google. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

    I have seen mortise gauges which can do that, but there are no scissors involved.

    There's something kind of like you are describing called equal space dividers. Rocker sells one version that happens to be on sale right now :

    Woodpeckers made one through their One Time Tool program, but I think it's now retired but you can look it up,

    I think you have the winning answer Charles. On the other hand, if something on a larger scale is needed a coping jig for the table saw is basically the same thing. I think Mark over on the WW has a vid on making one
