Rob Cosman's Marking Gauge Cutters with Rods
We offer four different size marking gauge cutters each with different bevel angles so you can use the right cutter for the right job. These are our cutters with rods. Click HERE to go to the cutters without rods product page.
Cutters are available in 3/8 inch, 1/2 inch, 7/16 inch , and 5/8 inch diameters
3/8 inch cutter - 40 degree bevel (Cleaning out mortises and sockets)
1/2 inch cutter - 25 degree bevel (General purpose cutter)
7/16 inch cutter - 20 degree bevel (Softwood cutter)
5/8 inch cutter - 35 degree bevel (Large/panel gauge size cutter)
Rods are 5/16 inch diameter and 7 inches long
The rods fit the Rob Cosman and the "Cosmanized" marking gauges and any other marking gauge that accepts 5/16 inch diameter rods.
I love how Robs tools are ready to use when you get them. The cutter blades are already sharpened. You do t have to do anything to make them usable.
The cutter seemed sharp when I received it, but I sharpened it on the finest diamond “stone” I have which is 4000 grit and it cuts very well. I’m using it in a guide I already had, which didn’t let me retract the cutter into it. I chucked it in my lathe and the brass was easily turned with a larger hole to accept the larger 1/2” cutter.
The different size of cutters work great, they expand the uses for your marking gauge. Having the cutters on their own rods just makes than much easier and faster to use.
Sharp cutters and superb engineering.
