With an 8" steel shaft marked in inches and mm and a Solid Brass positioning stop and a beveled hardened steel marker at the end of the shaft, this works beautifully as a Woodworker's Marking Gauge. Included are a mid-shaft stop for additional positioning flexibility and two additional beveled wheel markers to mark out mortises with one stroke. The stop also functions as a rest & guide to keep the cutters perpendicular to the workpiece while marking. With an inside bevel the cutter is pulled snug to the fence, preventing wander while marking. The hardened steel-alloy wheel is flush-mounted (it makes a handy depth gauge) and safely nests in a recess in the brass fence when not in use. A proven modern design.
