Rose Sheoak or Blackwood 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.
Note: The gauge in the photo is rose sheoak. We may send a blackwood gauge if no rose sheoak is available. Please email us if you would like a rose sheoak one specifically.
Outstanding quality, craftsmanship and design
Title says it all. Gauge feels amazing to use, does the job it’s meant to do extremely well, and the general design is really well thought out. My favorite part is perhaps how well it’s finished.
