Here is the marking gage I made for Brandon. The wood might be Brazilian Mahogany. The brass is real brass. The W-1 making blade is nested in a piece of brass held in by 4-40 screws. 4-40 threaded inserts are epoxied into the rail end. I tapped the fence with a 3/8-16 thread and protected the threads with super glue a tip from Tim. Thank you for that. Thumb screw tightens on a brass strip epoxied into the rail. a Brass strips to protect the fence. Finish is oil, shellac and wax. This is the first swap I was involved in and it was fun. I look forward to doing another.
