A solid marking gauge to last a lifetime. It is produced from rosewood with a hefty 18.5mm main bar measuring 203mm long and a solid 3.5mm-thick solid brass wear strip running across its length. The heavy 2.5mm pin reduces chatter and will work across softwood grains with ease. There are extra 3mm brass wear strips installed in the face solid 65 x 56 x 28mm fence and a knurled brass knob locks the fence in place.
The maximum capacity for the gauge from the pin to fence of more than 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.
