This is the marking gauge I made for 489tad, It is made from Tzalam and Granadillo (Red Cocobolo)
with a 1/4” Brass inlaid in to the rail. Seeing all the gauges made for the swap is really Awe inspiring.. Great work guys, it has truly been a humbling, fun and educational experience!.

This is a very nice gauge, Jordan. The shape of the fence reminds of a whale!

Really like the shape and the brass inlays. Nice job!

Very nice. Was your recipient left handed? or is it reversible.

Not sure if he’s right or left handed but it should work either way..

So far I only used it with my right hand. There are way too many jokes for that one Hammerthumb :) Great gage, thanks again Jordan.

Way too many possibilities for Pun’s there Don..

Thanks Mauricio, I wish I could say I turned them myself but my lathe isn’t setup as of yet..
