Material: Steel, Brass
This is the 5th and final project contributed by Ken. This Joinery Marking Gage closely resembles the traditional woodworking tool used to scribe a line parallel to the edge of a workpiece.
Here’s what Ken has to say about his final project:
“This project is similar to the last, but greatly simplified, and is more for use with joinery.
No doubt you already have a timber one in your tool box, but I’ll bet it’s beginning to split.
This one will last for ever, and can be knocked up in a few hours.
The polished brass and steel make a good visual combination.
Manufacture is straight forward, except if you opt for the grooves around the body. For this, you will need access to a dividing head.
My Unimat 3 mini lathe/mill, comes with one, so I was lucky.”
Ken originally posted these plans back in 2007 (along with 4 others) on the Metalworking section of Woodworking Australia’s Woodwork Forums. Here’s a link to Ken’s original Joinery Marking Gage post in the Metalworking section of the forum.
