Description

In Detail

With two independently adjustable rods, this gauge can scribe both sides of a mortice at once. The length of each ground stainless-steel rod is very precise. By registering the tails against either side of a chisel, you can set the cutters to span the exact width of the chisel blade. Projection is easy to set, an internal O-ring keeps light but constant friction on each rod; a thumbscrew locks the setting. One rod has its cutting edge at the extreme end of the rod, making it useful for transferring dimensions or as a depth gauge. As with all Veritas marking gauges, the wheel cutters avoid the problems of wandering that can occur with pin-style marking gauges. They cut wood fibres rather than tear them and they mark cleanly, even on cross grain. These hardened steel wheel cutters scribe perfectly at any point of their circumference. They are oriented with the cutting bevels facing in opposite directions, so you can always mark your line with the bevel facing the waste side of any cut. Each cutter is fully retractable for safe storage or to permit use with a single cutter. The rods project off-centre from the anodized aluminium body, which helps the gauge resist rolling on a workbench and maximises the area of the 50mm diameter brass face that can register against the work piece. 190mm overall length, the gauge has a setting range from zero to 145mm. The aluminium housing has a brass face and the rods are stainless steel. Made in Canada.

Lovely precision tool

The quality of Veritas tools is fabulous and this marking gauge is no exception. Simple, elegant and very nice to use. I got the package with the clamp which is very useful for transferring measurements. Mine cut just fine out of the the box (based on the other reviews I might give the wheels a hone anyway, just to see if it makes a difference).

Top marks

Yet another very well designed and manufactured Veritas tool.
As below the wheels needed a light honing before use.
The gauge leaves a useful "V" groove, one leg of the "V" is vertical, so it is very simple to locate a chisel/saw.
As with a normal gauge with a pi care still needs to be taken or the gauge can be drawn off line with wavy/sloping grain.

Nice Gauge

I make a lot of hand cut mortice and tenon joints, and find this gauge really useful.

I did have to hone the cutting wheels when I first got it. So not ready to go straight out the box.

Quality is good and after a quick hone it works great.
