Seems awfully complicated.  He's got a lot of tooling - machines and the like - and he can't afford a marking gauge?

I like the knurling solution, never thought of doing that, nice trick.

Its more of the journey, at least it would be for me.

I think the same thing.  Nothing like making your own tools if you can.  Means a lot more to you and IF you make them nice enough to sell a few if others like them.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

I thought the "knurling" trick with the file was pretty clever, Gary...Rich picked up on it also.... Winkgrin

And, I'm pretty sure he already had marking gauges, but making his own was a personal "thing"...a "journey" unto itself.... Big Grin

If you watch carefully you will see that his bandsaw is home made. Why would he buy a marking gauge when he can make one. Smile

When you have eliminated all unnecessary wood, then whatever remains, however well formed, is too small to serve as originally intended.

It is a cutting gauge for crossgrain use not just any marking gauge with a pin.
Cutting gauges don't come cheap. All the cheap ones have just a round pin.


By the way I have made a lot of tools myself. Even built some machines. Making what I can make means that I at least stand a chance to afford what I cannot make.
