Marking Gauge for Swap - by Rick M. @ LumberJocks.com ~ woodworking community
Padauk and poplar, iron is made from a hex key. If I were to do anything different, I would cut the round mortise then glue on the padauk with just a small hole for the iron but live and learn. The threaded insert ties the mortise and tenon together (they are also glued). The iron is very sharp and cuts nicely. Will mark to a depth of about 2.5”. Also useful for cutting strips of veneer.
