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.

  • The handle is crafted form the same Ebony Swanstone composite material as our saw 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.

The Necessary Gauge

Accurate, solid, sharp, and well made are only a few of the reasons this a “must” have from the Cosman shop. And, the large lock screw is wonderful.

Incredible quality

I thought the wheel marking gauge I had was "okay". Until I received the RC version. The weight and balance make it feel so comfortable in the hand. The excellent sharpness of the wheel makes putting lines in wood an easy task as the tool doesn't wander as you move across the wood.

RC Marking Gauge is premium!!

I was working with a Veritas marking gauge under the impression that it was top of the line, Rob’s gauge blows it away, the weight and feel is far superior. Most importantly the cutter is higher quality and leaves a crisper line, I highly recommend it.
