I took the handles
So tonight I worked on a dove tail marking gage I’ve been wanting for a while. At the tool chest class I attended, a couple of people had gages that allowed them to mark the slant and horizontal lines without repositioning the gage. What’s a little movement huh? For some people probably not much, for me, I thought I needed one.
I used a nice little strip of red oak I had stashed for a while. About 1.5″ wide by 3/8″ thick. I wanted a gage that would let me mark tails on 2 by lumber. When I write about my saw bench, you’ll see what I mean.
The gage on the left is a Paul Sellers style, one of the first things I made this year. I’ll let you know how the two compare after I’ve used them for a while. Tomorrow, I install handles,hopefully. Stay tuned, more to come.
