    Tiny marking gauge

    Hi,
    Talking about marking gauges, I have one similar to the one made by Garage Workshop, but there are situations where it is not usable.
    - need for marking a really tiny distance
    - need to follow tight curves

    Here is the one I made this week end :

    The main rod has an 10 mm diameter and the transversal one, only 5.
    The marking pencil is reduced to a 2mm diameter lead.
    Obviously, the screw above is not necessary, the fit is just tight enough.
    This is made out of beech, waxed with carnauba.



    The setup here is just 1 mm.
