Ebony Marking Gauge
Size: The head is 75mm wide and 24mm thick made from wood and brass. It has a brass rub strip to prevent wear and the locking knob is threaded through a brass pin to ensure it won't wear out. The arm length allows you to scribe a line 0 - 185mm from the edge.
Average weight: 300 gram
Marker: Is a HSS straight pin sharpened to a point. Can be removed for sharpening or moved for depth adjustment.
Purpose: Marking out joints where a parallel line is required or a single point. Ideally suited to marking a line with the grain or across end grain. It leaves a ragged line when used to markout a line across the grain.
