This 35th anniversary limited-edition marking gauge is turned from stainless steel and machined to a fine finish.
As with all of our marking gauges, the hardened steel wheel cutter scribes perfectly at any point of its circumference. Since it cuts wood fibers rather than tears, it marks cleanly, even on cross grain. The wheel's single-sided bevel also pulls the gauge face against the stock, helping maintain accuracy. Its cutting edge is at the extreme end of the rod, useful when transferring dimensions such as tenon shoulder and mortise depth.
The eccentric placement of the rod ensures a large reference face and helps the gauge resist rolling on a surface. Projection up to
5-3/4" is easy to set, with an internal O-ring keeping light but constant friction on the rod; a thumbscrew then locks the setting. The wheel retracts into the face of the gauge for storage and protection. Gauge face diameter is approximately 1-7/8".
An optional inside wheel cutter is also available, with the bevel facing the end of the rod; this ensures that you can always set the bevel in the waste side of any cut.
7" overall. Made in Canada, and available while quantities last.
