In Detail

Made in the tradition of tools from the heyday of craftsmanship, this combined marking and mortice gauge is a truly impressive piece of equipment. The body is of rosewood with a very substantial brass facing and has a well engineered locking screw which operates on a brass pressure pad to avoid marking of the stock. A thumb screw on the end of the stock provides very fine control over the mortice width setting and the marking pins are hardened for accuracy and long life. We are tempted to say that this is one for the mantelpiece but that really would be depriving you of the benefits of a very accurate and functional piece of marking equipment.

After trying a couple of cheaper gauges which had an awfully sloppy fit to the stock I decided to bite the bullet and buy what I hoped would be the best. There's no play in the stock, pins are sharp out of the box (which isn't essential but nice anyway) and I much prefer the screw adjustment to a slide. For me it's a perfect gauge and it looks beautiful too-you won't regret buying one!
