    Hi

    Sounds like you have a mortise/marking gauge. The 2 points are adjusted to the width of the mortising chisel. You can then transfer the marks to the piece to be mortised and the piece that will be tenoned.
    All the best,

    Ian hit the nail on the head.

    Larry, I'm thinking with all those sharp points you are risking poking a hole in you. Maybe I should take the gage off your hands before its too late. Go grab your leather gloves and put the dangerous thing in your truck and I'll releave you of it next week.
