"Sometimes the design of a product can be so simple that it's a wonder why it's new to the market"

Brumley Tools has done it again! How do you improve on the already successful 4" Trim Gauge® that has received industry acclaim? Featured in Fine Home Building, This Old House, Work Bench, Contractor Tools & Supplies, LBM Journal and, showcased on HGTV 2003 National Hardware Show and demonstrated by Tom Silvas on the popular TV show, This Old House. To top the successful 4" Trim Gauge®, Brumley Tools now introduces a new 8" version that is sure to be a formidable challenger to the already popular torpedo level, says Philip Brumley CEO of Brumley Tools, Inc.

"The new 8" Trim Gauge® has all of the advantages of the torpedo level," Brumley says, "It has the industry-standard three vials for leveling and a magnetized edge, but it has all of the uses that you've come to know and expect from its 4" predecessor, plus a 1/4 inch offset featured on both sides of the tool instead of the existing 3/16" that is present on the 4" version." "This helps commercial trim carpenters who use 1/4" offsets when setting trim. Now you have the best of both industries residential and commercial," Brumley says.

"Why carry a Torpedo Level in your pouch when all it does is just level, when you could have the new 8" Multi-Purpose Trim Gauge® Tool that is virtually the same size and capable of performing a multitude of tasks beyond that of a Torpedo Level?" says Brumley, "Space in a carpenter's tool pouch has always been a premium, reserved only for tools that get the job done fast and efficiently." "This is why the Combination Square, a valuable tool in its own right, never made it into the carpenters pouch because of its bulkiness and it proved somewhat cumbersome to operate," says Brumley.

The unique offset edges, low center of gravity and narrow profile exclusive to both Trim Gauge® models allow it to cradle a piece of pipe over a larger surface area making it more stable and less apt to tip over, thus correcting a common problem with traditional torpedo levels of today. Also, it positions the horizontal vial so it typically faces you at a 45 degree angle which allows for better reading.

Trim Gauge® is well on its way to being a must-have for the professional on the construction site and the Do It Yourselfer.


Adjustable sliding scale on both sides of the tool making it convenient for right hand and left handed measurements.

Locking thumb screw makes it possible to lock down the dimension you are working with, enabling easy repetitive measurement use.

Bright, bold color ensures Trim Gauge™ is easy to find around the house or on the job site.

Compact and user friendly. The Trim Gauge™ fits nicely in your hand while in use and conveniently in your tool pouch without taking up much space like other tools do.

Spirit Levels are built into the bottom of the tool allowing for easy leveling of vertical and horizontal surfaces.

A 1/4" reveal built into both sides of the tool. This is the standard reveal used when installing door and window trim around openings.

Unique "mirror" design. When you slide the Trim Gauge™ and its exclusive patented design forward in one direction on the imperial side, it will read the metric conversion from the opposite direction. When the Trim Gauge™ is locked down it will hold the same measurement on both ends regardless of whether you are using imperial or metric measurements.

Upgraded to include an overall (accumulative) measurement between two points (both ends)
