Using my new marking gauge and my new marking knife from Rockler. I paid $15 bucks a piece, and what I needed to to get them into shape.

Thanks for the review Shawn. One suggestion I have for the marking gauge is that you create a flat spot on the brass portion. This will help to prevent the gauge from rolling off your work table.

Hi Shawn. Try fixing the wheel tight so it cuts through the wood fibre rather than rolling over it. Then when it gets dull just turn the wheel to a fresh edge and your good to go agaiin. I have a similar one with the wheel
locked and it works great. Looking forward to your next video, thanks again for another look at your ever growing shop and wood skills.. Alf Bennett.

Thanks Guys,

Nobuckle, I am going to take your advice I all most had it roll of my bench the other day. I might cover that in a short update. Alfred I all ready took you advice and locked the cutting wheel down I like how it works a lot better.
