Crown: Keeping woodworking tradition alive.
A solid cutting gauge built to last a lifetime. It is produced from Rosewood with a hefty 18.5mm arm measuring 203mm long, and a 3.5mm-thick solid brass bar running along its entire length. The razor-sharp knife cutter is held in place with an attractive solid brass wedge and is perfect for use when marking across and along end-grain in all hardwoods. It features 3mm brass wear-strips installed in the face of the 65 x 56 x 28mm fence, and a knurled brass knob to lock the fence in place. The maximum capacity from the pin to the fence is 140mm.
When buying this gauge you are buying from one of the last few manufacturers based out of Sheffield, England where the place of manufacture still equates to the premium quality that it has been known for hundreds of years. You will immediately appreciate the quality of this and other Rosewood gauges in the Crown range.
