About

Every day at One Off Effects we are building the future. We measure every step of our projects endlessly. Out of necessity we built a tool to get the job done quickly. Who or what is it for? Anyone with a toolbox, from carpenters to machinists to tinkerers. The Multi-Guage measures inner diameter, outer diameter, radius edges, sheet metal thickness, rod diameters, mill heights, filet radii and so much more. You will use it so often it should almost be part of your everyday carry.

We built this to be a small inexpensive and compact tool designed to help you measure the things you measure most. Our goal was to develop a multi-measurement device, then compress it into one small inexpensive tool for the everyday builder. You don't have to search endlessly for rulers, veneer calipers, gauge blocks, radius gauges, drill gauges or whole diameter gauges. In addition, when you lose something in the set, which always happens, it's $60 bucks for the new set. The Multi-Gauge is so much more, you can also use it to measure nuts, bolts, and allen wrench heads.  The plastic version of the Multi-Gauge is tolerant within +- .1mm (.004") the solid metal gauge is within .05mm (.002")

We have built lots of tools for our own use and want to share them with others. We have several other products we would like to launch, but we need your help to start this endeavor. For years we have built amazing products for our clients. Now it’s our turn. We are a small, tight-knit team who design and fabricate every day. We have looked for solutions to real world problems for everything from tools, to outdoor lifestyle activities to philanthropic efforts. Internally, we are solving these problems in our own unique way. When supporting Multi-Gauge you are also supporting our shop's mission to design and bring innovative new products to market.

The core team on this project consists of Ben Mckee (M.F.A - University of Georgia), Ryan Phillips (B.F.A RISD 1995), Jackson Kwiatkowski (B.S Physics,Westmont)

Risks and challenges

As a design shop, we have already worked through the challenges and have produced what we believe is a world class tool that just doesn't exist on the market. We needed it and we know how many other makers, machinists, welders, tinkerers and home-workshop moms and dads do as well. Please help us bring this great product to market and help OOE bring other new products to market soon. Follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to get updates on the latest from our shop. We have a lot of exciting products launching soon, from board games to outdoor gear. Thank you in advance for your support.
