    Small rosewood marking / slitting gauge SALE PENDING

    I found this little marking gauge at an estate sale. It is a bit smaller than the usual, and has a slitting blade, rather than a round point.

    $12 shipped in the CONUS, paypal or check ok.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Thank you kindly, Mr. Merlau, but I think I'll wait and see if somebody wants the rest of it too.

    It is probably a leather working tool and not a wood marker since it has the slitting blade. Being smaller is another hint.

    I respectfully beg to differ Frank. I've seen the exact one in woodworking catalogs. The slitter is really sized for marking wood, not cutting leather.

    Isn't the position of the wedge that holds the blade wrong? It should be facing the end of the bar not its side, the way it is set will not exert any pressure on the blade unless it is conical on four sides which I doubt.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I checked again Toni, the wedge is correct. Looks wrong, but it is sloped in the direction of the grain.
