No, you’re not going crazy, thinking that you’ve already seen this project post. Last week, I posted the marking gauge I made for the tool swap, and I made an almost duplicate one for me. I went through the same steps of milling, chopping, bandsawing, filing, sanding, grinding, and sharpening for both tools. About the only change from the previous project to this one is that I rounded the ends of the beam instead of putting a bevel (no real reason, just a different style) and I included a notch on the end of the beam opposite the blade to ride a pencil for pencil marking (got that idea from the marking gauge I got from LJ jap).

It’s like deja vu all over again, I’d better check that my gauge is still in the shop. Nice job, Don!
