Rob Cosman's Marking Gauge

Product Description

The second most important tool in cutting dovetails is your marking gauge.  The gauge line becomes part of the finished joint.  Here is why I think my marking gauge will help you cut better dovetails:

  • The blade comes to you sharpened; designed to sever the wood fibers not crush them, leaving a crisp gauge line.   

  • The blade is fixed in use but can be rotated to a sharper area when it gets dull.  You can do this several times before having to resharpen.

  • Has a flat section on the brass head preventing the gauge from rolling off of your bench.

  • The face of the head is dead flat, making for precise work.

  • Has a large knurled locking knob that is easy to tighten.

  • Comes standard with the 1/2" diameter cutter head.  

  • Extra cutter heads available in 3/8", 7/16", and 5/8" diameters.

  • Click HERE to go to the marking gauge cutter head product page.

  • Available with Ebony Resin or Fiddleback Maple handles. 

  • Other species of wood handled marking gauges are occasionally available in limited manufacturing runs.  You can see these limited edition marking gauges by clicking HERE.

 Better tools contribute to better work.

"Your marking gauge is impressive. It is obvious that quality is contagious in your operation. I have not purchased any other tools that are as finely made as yours. I will be putting the tools to good use shortly - actually I can hardly wait."

Marking Gauge

Recently purchased and used Rob’s marking gauge and modified gauge for mortise/tenon work, and both worked exactly as shown in Rob’s videos. Very well made tools.
