Brilliant website, really easy to order.
There are two main problems with a typical marking gauge: you have to tilt it just right to avoid pin chatter and, even then, the pin tends to follow the wood grain, throwing off your line.
The Veritas Wheel Marking Gauges solve both problems. The hardened steel wheel cutter scribes perfectly at any point of its circumference.
Since it cuts wood fibres rather than tears, it marks cleanly, even on cross grain.
The wheel's single-sided bevel also pulls the gauge face against the stock, maintaining accuracy.
Its cutting edge is at the extreme end of the rod, useful for transferring dimensions such as tenon shoulder and mortise depth.
The wheel retracts into the face of the gauge for storage and protection.
Very easy to set, since each has an internal O-ring to keep light but constant friction on the rod.
Every product that leaves the Vertitas workshop is made to high engineering tolerances and this tool is no exception.
A neat and easy to set up alternative to marking up by hand the groove for shrink pots.
