Marking Gauges for Sale
#3
  
Three handmade marking gauges for sale.  I make these myself periodically.  Each one is hand-shaped and a little bit different. 

Each gauge is $40 plus shipping ($7 to CONUS--PM me for shipping quote to other locations).

Specs: Each marking gauge is made from black cherry, and the fence is faced with spalted pecan for wear-resistance.  The bell-shaped profile of the fence gives you a convenient place to rest your index finger and thumb.  The profile also offers a wider bearing surface than most other gauges without making the fence too big to wrap your hand around.  The arm locks securely with a sliding dowel mechanism, which is operated with one hand.  Press the button on one side firmly and the arm locks; press the other one and it unlocks.  There is no side-to-side play in the arm.  At first, the arm will require some pressure to slide in and out, but this will become easier with repeated use.  The pin is made from hardened steel and sharpened to a rounded spear-point, so it cuts in either direction.  While a pin-style gauge works best with the grain, this gauge will also mark across the grain if used with light pressure.  As you resharpen the pin, you can tap it down from the top.


Gauge #1: Small head (2 3/8" wide by 2" tall), 6" long arm

Bump for the weekend crowd.  All gauges are still available.
