    Get your mind around this gauge !!

    A 4 beam marking/mortise gauge - with a sliding extension.

    Just what you might need when laying out a couple of mortises of different widths or offset... or what ?

    This looks like a tool for somebody who's got all the tools.

    Pretty cool to look at anyway

    Thatís a very cool tool! Iíd love to see the inside of the body, Iím having a hard time visualizing how the one thumb screw locks all 5 rods.

    It would appear that the screw tightens down on the two top beams and they in turn tighten up the bottom pair. Least that is what I get from the pic. Sure would like to have it though.

    Hey, this thread came back to life!

    For the beam-challenged, there is always the Veritas Dodeca-Gauge...



    This was the April Fools joke from a few years ago...wonder what the boys and girls in Canada will put up this year? Tis coming soon...

    Take care, Mike
