Needle gauge prototypes!9 comments
I have a little project to share that bore fruit just before my accident – a knitting needle gauge I designed. Frustrated with the ones I own either being too big to carry around or not having all the sizes I need I designed my own some time ago, but it was too expensive to put into production because of the cost of laser cutting. However, I’ve now found an affordable solution so my needle gauge became a reality in August when these prototypes were delivered.
My needle gauge is credit card sized, has all metric sizes from 2-12mm, a 5cm rule and a 2 inch rule. I think I will add a WPI gauge to the final design as well. They will most likely be available in 2mm clear acrylic but I may get a thicker version
I’d appreciate some help with my market research if you wouldn’t mind!
- Would you buy one?
- How much would you pay?
- Am I missing anything?
