Marking Gage
« on: January 25, 2015, 03:20:58 AM »
I needed a marking gage today to lay out the centerline on a stock.  Didn't have one, so I made this one to go with the depth gage I use all the time

I wish I could just whip up stuff like that.  Very nice work.  If you aren't in business selling tools like this, you need to be.  I can see the line forming now.

Truly nice. If I was Dave, I'd be asking myself if I can make and market a tool that's already out there for under 40 bucks. I've been known to make an item I could easily purchase just because just because. We've all heard the quip about the blacksmith: "Why spend $6 for something I can make in only 6 hours?"

For example:     http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/page.aspx?p=59455

It is elegant though, no?

I have one of Dave's depth guages because I don't know another tool that does what that one can. It's always close and handy.
