I have the cheaper model from Woodcraft and found it very difficult to set
accurately. Another thing is that the fine line it cuts is difficult to see
(old age, I guess) :)
If your eyes are good, you may want to spent the extra $$ for the micro
Just my 2 cents.
There is a thin line between hobby & mental illness.
Take out the TRASH for E-mail.
The micro-adjustable wheeled marking gauge Veritas has looks like
it was inspired by the Glenn Drake Tite-Mark. I have the Tite-Mark
and it's a very refined version of the old wheeled marking gauge.
Hardened steel rod, flat bottom grooved so the locking screws,
which have nice big gnurled (sp?) nob, get a good bite on the rod -
without dinging it, a nylon adjustable friction screw which lets you
set how things slide - well thought out tool. The lock knobs are
large enough to prevent the tool from rolling more than one rev-
olution. IF you keep the tool more than one revolution from the
edge of your bench it can't roll off onto the floor. Less than one
revolution and the tool WILL roll off onto the floor - AND the
harded marking wheel WILL chip (DAMHIKT)
Don't know about the Veritas version but the Tite-Mark has an
accessory which really enhances the tool - a pair of mortise/
tenon marking wheels which slide onto the steel rod and can
be locked into the groove in the rod with set screws. Gives
you the double liine scribing capabilities of a dual pin marking
gauge but with micro-positioning AND a single beveled wheel
The Veritas micro-adjustable wheeled marking gauge looks
like a good tool. I know the Tite-Mark is a great tool.
Have a look at this page with more on this tool - text
really can't describe this tool and its use.
I have no connection to Glenn Drake or Tite-Mark other
than being a very satisfied customer.
