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).

I like the wedge and how it holds the blade, good idea.

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