    So great

    I’m always looking for things that still at least FEEL like they’re made well..b/c not much actually is these days. This marking gauge is. It’s got a great weight to it. It feels substantial. Not too heavy. But it feels as heavy as you’d expect considering it’s made of brass. Accurate too. & I like the micro-adjust twist knob. Very helpful. I knew nothing about marking knives or gauges before watching this channel, but consider me a convert.

    What's not to like about brass?

    Beautiful to hold and behold. I actually spent hours at first just fidgeting with it for the sheer pleasure and in order to get properly acquainted with it. I even bragged about it my anthropology class ("Body, Craft and Technology") and let students handle it and guess what it was. While fidgeting with it, I felt the edge of the cutter to be a little rough, especially as compared with my Veritas Micro-Adjust marking gauge. Veritas is very sharp and cuts beautifully but the line it leaves is too fine for me to see. This one makes a satisfyingly deep and visible line. Since I often like to enhance its visibility by running a 0.5 mechanical pencil through it, this gauge has a real advantage over Veritas. I can just put the pencil in the groove and follow it freehand. The tip will stay in the groove. Veritas gauge makes too fine a line for that. So far, I haven't felt the need to use the micro-adjust feature and I think it will take some time to get used to it. All in all, I think it is a both very practical, efficient, solid and well-designed as well as beautiful to (be)hold.

    Brass Marking Gauge

    Pleasantly surprised when I opened up the box. I was a machinist for much of my adult life. I know a quality tool when I see one. Works very well also. You can’t beat the price. Well done! Tony

    Game changer for the newbie

    My layout and marking has gotten so much better since I bought this gauge. The weight is great and I love the micro adjust feature. Would recommend to anyone new to the hobby wanting to up their game.
