Mortise Marking Gauge
Essential tool for all woodworkers for marking mortise. Brass pull slide wear
plates and thumb screw for making quick adjustments. The unit is crafted from
hardwood. Useful for marking mortise joints.
The hole through the block is machined too large for the arm. This makes setting the gauge so that it's square to your wood time consuming and sometimes inaccurate. It's worth spending a bit more for a better made tool that will be more accurate and easier to use.
I drove 2 hours there, 2 hours back to get this and it is the worst item I have bought from busy bee and have no way to return without driving 4 hours of driving. It is competely warped along the rod and you cannot move the sliding adjuster well because of that. The pins skate on the wood MUCH too easily.
