    Marking Knife: Layout Tool and Height Gage

    My favorite marking out knife is flat on one face and beveled on the other. Turns out it is also useful as a height gage when I need to lower a cutter until it touches a reference surface.

    Rick,

    Did you grind the 30 bevel freehand or in a fixture when creating the marking knife. The edge looks very straight.

    Thanks for posting,

    Paul
