Dude- that's pretty cool. If you find where to get it let me know, I want one. I've only ever seen the slide rod kind.

Did you try Amazon? Or just search for it, but I think Amazon has a link to it.

I got nada. Call Big Foot. They have a suggested retail, so I would assume that someone sells it. If not, the may sell it direct.

I knew a guy that made those locally in the 90's. Not as intricate. Was a 1/4" piece of aluminum. A handle was bent and dipped in liquid rubber. Last I heard he was patenting the the tool. I wonder if he sold to them?

you can make one. drill a 5/8 hole in a metal strap, cut it in half and then measure 5 1/2" or 3 1/2" and make a hole for ur pencil.

Re: Big Foot Tools Bolt Hole Marker?


that would be more of something to just have, rather than useful. I just eyeball the plates down onto the chalk line. Bolts only stick up 2 1/2" anyways.

Eastside staple in Bellevue, Wa has them. If you give them a call, I bet they will ship you one.

I have one. I've never used it- another impulse buy, it really is just a gimmick!! If I remember correctly I think I purchased direct from Big Foot.
