Her are some processes I used to make a marking gauge that locks with a wedge. The timber is NZ Black Maire and Australian Blackwood.

Awesome! You may it look easy with the use of all those handtools :)
Looks great though. I appreciate you spending time showing how you shaped the jigsaw blade.

Thanks for posting this Andy. There are some cut offs out in the shop that are just dreaming of becoming a marking gauge. I’d better not let them down.

I enjoy watching all your videos. It’s much easier to make something once you see how it is done.
Thanks.

Andy,

Thanks. I liked your shop sander. lol
Looks like the 16 inch planer is a heavy duty tool. Walking around the bicycles. :)

Shows me it is your skill and not the precision power tools.

Nice end product!

Nicely done. I especially like the spider running away when you crank up the bench grinder

Thanks for the video, it’s great. How’s the dust collection coming on that planer?

Enjoyable video. You make me want to try my hand at making one.

Hey, I thought you only made silent woodworking videos (at least this is the first one where I heard you talk). I prefer talking movies ;-)

It takes a little time to get used to your own voice Marty. It is good practice for me to talk. If you only Knew how many takes I did on” The stem is 200mm x 20mm x 20 mm” rrrgggggg! All good. Thanks for the comments Guys.
