Â by Bontyjoy Profile gauge - Don't think so
Forge Steel have never been my favourite brand, but this was the only profile gauge available from Screwfix. Spend Â£100s if not Â£1000's a year at Screwfix and was disappointed that this tool was flimsy and imprecise. The 'blades' are loosely held and moved as soon as the device was removed from the profile. Tried several times, same result each time. Product packed for 'Returns'.

Wished I had read the reviews a little more carefully.
Wanted this to template round toilet and sink pedestals which were remaining in place, as an earlier review pointed out the 'pins' are not deep/long enough to profile round the whole curve and the unit is not wide enough, meaning the profile had to be pieced together in three or four attempts, probably would have been quicker to do it the old fashioned way
Product could do with being a little wider as well; +300mm would be a better width.
Plastic pins are a bit too chunky and not held as firmly as I would like.
Overall a lot of money for what it is and there are better items out there on the market, if time were on my side I would not have purchased this particular item.
