For Sale: A interesting marking gauge.

It is believed that this tool would be used primarily by a pattern maker or perhaps a ship builder. I received this tool in a collection from a older gentleman in R.I. He had to be in his late 60's early 70's. The tools were his Grandfathers who was a pattern maker and boat builder. The man that sold me the collection was extremely nice, I promised to make sure these tools would get a great home. I am sure that won't be a problem with this gem. I do have to mention that the pin is present but worn down.

I love the design of this tool. The beechwood is structurally sound. I do not think the pins are original. The cover over the legs is a little loose but remains solid.
