Combined Mortice & Marking Gauge (Beechwood)
Made in the UK.
This is a traditional tool that is a part of every woodworkers tool kit. The Footprint Beechwood Combined Mortice and Marking Gauge is used on one side to mark wood so that a mortice and tennon joint can be created using two hardened steel pins. On the reverse side of the guage is a single hardened steel pin to mark parallel line marks.
The mortice and marking pins have been hardened to prevent the pins loosing there point and thus extending the working life of the gauge.
A tough wearing yellow plastic thumb screw allows ease of adjusting the head position on the stem of the marking guage. A brass slide enables the mortice pins to be moved up and down the neck of the gauge.
