Gecko guages are amazing!,

How anyone can put up cement boards or wooden shed boards without these GECKO GUAGES is mad! We bought these when we built our Marleyboard (cement fibre board) workshop and they are amazing.
They take all the guesswork out of setting the boards and, it's true, just one person can put up the boards. No bits of timber and chalk lines needed. No need to have a second person to hold the board while you nail. You can put the board on to measure the length accurately and slip it back into place to nail. We used an air nailer which means you can nail a single board in less than a minute!
The adjustment on them is fantastic and so simple and quick. When we reached the top of the build and didn't want to cut a whole board lengthways we simply adjusted the gecko guages so that the overlap took up the extra!
OK, the GECKO GUAGES are not cheap (because they come all the way from the USA) but they are an absolute must.
It's about time the UK made something like this at a reasonable price.
By the way, I'm a 50+ yr old female and these GECKO GUAGES worked for me!
