Here is a few more tools. All of these tools use double edge razor blades for the cutters. This is a cutter used mostly for sticks. Works great if you need a bunch cut to exactly the same length or if you need a bunch with the same angle on the ends.

I am guessing that is homemade. If so, you did an excellent job on it. Very nice looking tool.

Then I found a used Jim Jones stripper and find it very good for small stuff (it has a physical maximum cut width of 0.125 inches - 1/8th).

George,
With a little modification, I use my Jim Jones stripper to cut over 1/4" strips.
I use it quite often to cut 1/8" x 3/8" motor sticks.
I will try to get around to posting pictures.

It took me a few moments to remember where I had seen the information you needed for the prop gauge, then I remembered: on my own site!

That looks like a 45 degree block, so you will need to use the data in the 45 degree column on this page:

(this may be old information - you probably already figured it out)

I used the Master Airscrew stripper for years.  Then I found a used Jim Jones stripper and find it very good for small stuff (it has a physical maximum cut width of 0.125 inches - 1/8th).

I use the Jim Jones for small stuff and the Master Airscrew for larger.  I will be squaring up the face of the Master Airscrew for better accuracy.

I made it.  It's mostly as per plan but I'm going to permanetly install a wire in the back of it to center directly on the prop. I added the oak base just for looks. It sets more solid on the table that way. I need a bigger one. Might make it out of different hardwoods.
Going to re-do my rubber/prop tester jig. Trying to figure a way to include static thrust measurements and rpm Huh Undecided  Will post it later. I love tools.
