This elegant marking gauge is three tools in one - a wheel gauge, a pin gauge, and a cutting gauge.
The unique swiveling pin/blade chuck takes either a pin or a blade that can be locked in place (after the extension is set) using a set screw at the end of the 4-1/2" gauge stem. The cutting blade can be set for either right- or left-handed use. The opposite end of the stem is tapped to accept a 3/8" diameter wheel cutter.
The fence and the internal portion of the locking collet are single eccentric brass turnings. The collet fingers have just enough stem friction to hold a projection setting while you lock it in place with a half turn of the knurled locking sleeve. The 1" diameter fence is eccentric to maximize the rub depth. The added benefit is that it prevents the gauge from rolling off the workbench.
Comes complete with a dozen spare blades, two hardened steel pins, a wheel cutter and screw, and a hex key. Extra stems available separately for those who prefer to switch heads as quickly as possible.
Made in Canada. Patented.
An excellent tool, a great buy!
